The remarkable untold story of electronic music’s female pioneers, composers who embraced machines and their liberating technologies to utterly transform how music is produced and listened to today. From Eliane Radigue, to Clara Rockmore, from Daphne Oram to Bebe Barron, Pauline Oliveros, Delia Derbyshire, Maryanne Amacher, Suzanne Ciani and Laurie Spiegel, this documentary narrated by Laurie Anderson reveals a unique emancipation struggle and restores the central role played by women in the history of music.

Director Lisa Rovner will take part in panel discussion Women Composers Today on 23 Apr at 6.30pm
