Contrasting visions of world cinema
UNITED KINGDOM | 82 minutes | 2020
Éliane Radigue, Wendy Carlos, Clara Rockmore, Daphne Oram, Bebe Barron, Pauline Oliveros, Delia Derbyshire, Maryanne Amacher, Suzanne Ciani, Laurie Spiegel. These little-known legends of electronic music mixed academic composition with experimentation and the sounds of cinema, television and advertising. From the 50s to the 80s, armed with their synthesizers, oscillators, filters and sequencers — intimidating “machines of the future” whose artistic destiny had yet to be invented — they changed the course of music history. An exultant documentary that celebrates the heroines of the sound studio and true pioneers of modernity, narrated by the great Laurie Anderson."appropriately galvanizing documentary" MoveAbleFest"the film transcends time and space to recreate the sonic landscapes that these artists could create for themselves when they felt as if they couldn’t be a part of certain spheres in the physical world." MoveAbleFest"a brilliant piece of revolutionary filmmaking that sets your senses aflame. Not only is this film eye-opening, it’s ear-opening, in fact it goes beyond that…it’s truly soul-opening."
