Electric and socially engaged, this documentary by Lisa Rovner brings a gallery of electronic music pioneers back into the light. Beautiful archive images ride the avant-garde waves of these nine women, all of whom played a part in creating new sensory and intellectual experiences. The film, narrated by artist and experimenter Laurie Anderson, covers concrete work within studios and sound laboratories as well as the close connections established with related artistic fields. By breaking the silence surrounding these personalities, this film celebrates major innovations in this musical territory.
