AEMI, DUBLIN FEMINIST FILM FESTIVAL & IFI present:
SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS

Directed by LISA ROVNER
March 5th – March 9th 2021

To mark International Women’s Day a panel made up of women currently working in the Irish electronic music scene will take place at 8.15pm on Monday March 8th following a watch along screening of the film that evening at 6.30pm. Moderated by Kate Butler, speakers Linda Buckley, Celavie D Mai, Michelle Doyle and Syn will respond to Sisters with Transistors and describe how the women portrayed in the film have influenced their own practice. 

AEMI is delighted to partner with Dublin Feminist Film Festival and IFI to present Sisters with Transistors, Lisa Rovner’s riveting film about electronic music’s female pioneers, remarkable and influential composers who transformed how music was produced and redefined the form, shape and texture it could take. Narrated by Laurie Anderson and made up almost entirely of rarely seen and newly discovered archival material showing each of these extraordinary figures at work, Sisters with Transistors traces a history of radical practice by offering up the space to these women to relate their own utterly compelling stories. Featuring Clara Rockmore, Daphne Oram, Bebe Barron, Delia Derbyshire, Maryanne Amacher,  Pauline Oliveros, Wendy Carlos, Eliane Radigue, Suzanne Ciani, and Laurie Spiegel, this film restores the central but underplayed role played by women in the innovation of electronic music.
