Life in the Waves: A performative presentation with Suzanne Ciani

With Suzanne Ciani, moderated by Dennis DeSantis

Suzanne Ciani is rightfully celebrated as a key figure in the evolution of electronic music. Her catalog and archive of experimental synthesizer compositions in the 1970s have become cornerstone recordings, and are now the subject of an extensive reissue / release series.

In this presentation, interspersed with performance examples, Suzanne will share some of the technical and philosophical challenges, successes and insights of over 40 years traversing the experimental, academic and commercial spheres of electronic music. Tracing a line through these and her long career within the new age genre, this session will offer a remarkable look at a true pioneer.
