Hoezo in KINO

No Man’s Land is KINO’s ongoing initiative to present the best contemporary and classic cinema directed by women. Director Lisa Rovner dives headfirst into the history of the electronic music scene and in a mesmerizing collage of stories and footage tells the often overlooked but pivotal role of women pushing the boundaries of this now dominant music genre. Musicians like Suzanne Ciani, Clara Rockmore, Delia Derbyshire and Daphne Oram get to tell their story, accompanied by a great electronic score composed from their body of work. A great music doc, only in KINO.

Storyline

The remarkable untold story of electronic music’s female pioneers, composers who embraced machines and their liberating technologies to utterly transform how we produce and listen to music today. Theremins, synthesizers and feedback machines abound in this glorious ode to the women who helped shape, not just electronic music but the contemporary soundscape as we know it. Avant-garde composer Laurie Anderson narration accompanies fascinating archival footage to trace the history of the technological experimentation of sound, the deconstruction of its parts and the manipulation into something altogether other. While traversing a range of musical approaches and personalities, from academia to outsider art to television commercials, we meet Clara Rockmore, Bebe Barron, Suzanne Ciani, Laurie Spiegel and Eliane Radigue, among many other fascinating and enigmatic musical geniuses and their peculiar way of hearing the world
