Exploring women’s influence on electronic music, Lisa Rovner’s Sisters with Transistors is a comprehensive look at the music you think you know (and maybe some music you haven’t yet heard) that reveals the staggering number of innovations pioneered by women in this technical field. From creating early radio sounds and commercial jingles, to playing the theremin and hand-editing magnetic tape and beyond, Sisters with Transistors is a sonically immersive historical tour guided by narrator Laurie Anderson and the voices of many of the women innovators themselves.
