About this event


		Stompbox: SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS - Toronto Premiere! image

SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS is an electrifying, hypnotic account of vanguard women pioneers in early electronic music, from Clara Rockmore’s experiments with the Theremin in the early 20th century, to the BBC Radiophonic Workshop of Delia Derbyshire (famous for the Doctor Who theme) and synthesizer masterminds Laurie Spiegel and Suzanne Ciani in the 1970s, creating beautiful noise from Buchla synthesizer and computer punch cards, composing for film and performance pieces and coaxing dreamy drones from innovative, unorthodox methods and machinery, including giant tape loops, early synthesizers and computer software.

Featured composers include Daphne Oram, Clara Rockmore, Bebe Barron, Delia Derbyshire, Maryanne Amacher, Pauline Oliveros, Wendy Carlos, Eliane Radigue, Suzanne Ciani, and Laurie Spiegel – among the greatest pioneers of modern sound. With a focus on the 1950s-80s, SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS is a perfect primer for anyone curious about the history of electronic sounds yet also features rare footage, sound experiments, and fresh insights for those already enmeshed in the seductive lure of synthtopia. Narrated by Laurie Anderson and masterfully edited by, among others, Montreal’s Kara Blake, director of the landmark Delia Derbyshire short film The Delian Mode. Toronto Premiere!
