News From the Freeform Front

Sisters with Transistors – Now Available On Demand

Lisa Rovner’s film Sisters with Transistors showcases the music of (and features rare interviews with) female electronic pioneers Clara Rockmore, Delia Derbyshire, Daphne Oram, Éliane Radigue, Maryanne Amacher, Bebe Barron, Suzanne Ciani, Pauline Oliveros, Laurie Spiegel, and Wendy Carlos. As Rovner’s documentary demonstrates, these women relished the freedom of electronic music, even as they were discriminated against because of their gender and their chosen medium. Sisters with Transistors is an essential primer for those interested in discovering this vital, oft-overlooked history. A Metrograph Pictures release. Available on demand until May 20th. A portion of the proceeds benefit WFMU. (Note that you need to register as a member of Metrograph to watch this film.) Click to learn more >

The Queen Has Come To Claim Her Crown:Suzi Q Now Available On Demand

Trailblazer. Inspiration. Survivor.

Featuring Joan Jett, Alice Cooper, and Debby Harry. Watch it here >
