    hi Henry..Dan Roth posted this on the Music&Arts forum a couple weeks ago, so most people have probably already seen the trailer.
    Looks interesting, but I'm surprised I didn't see any reference to Wendy Carlos in any of the promo material or the conversation on YT with the Producer.
    Yet she includes Susan Ciani.
    Wendy not only battled being a woman in a good old boy's field, but also her transition as well.

    Perhaps someone has a better understanding of the film, but I just don't understand how you can make a film about women in electronic music without including her.

    ^I saw some other coverage of the film that said it included Carlos.

    From the reviews I've seen the film only mentions Carlos briefly and has Ciani criticizing Switched-On Bach for promoting using the synth as a tool to perform old music. Oh well, Carlos is a more familar name than the others (and it most likely wouldn't have been easy to get her to agree to participate).
