As a warm-up to the concert FoEG presents: Suzanne Ciani (US), Sonja LaBianca and more, RMC invites the audience to an artist talk with the artist herself, the day before on Thursday, January 23.
For tonight's artist talk, the biographical documentary 'A Life in Waves' will be exclusively shown, exploring Suzanne Ciani's compositional pioneering work on the big canvas.
Afterwards there will be an artist talk with Ciani herself, which musician and radio producer Kim G. Hansen moderates. The conversation will be based on her musical journey from classically trained composer on the Buchla synthesizer, to commercial sound design for major international companies.
THE FILM & TALK IS FREE AND OPEN TO EVERYONE
ABOUT SUZANNE CIANI
Few artists have a career spanning as wide as Suzanne Ciani - from her pioneering solo achievements in new age and electronic music to Hollywood film scores and sound design for video games and commercials for big companies like Coca-Cola and Atari.
Over the course of her 40+ year career, Ciani has been nominated for a Grammy award five times and has released 16 solo albums, including "Seven Waves," "The Velocity of Love," and most recently, her comeback quadraphonic Buchla modular synth performance recording “LIVE Quadraphonic”. She’s provided the voice and sounds for Bally's groundbreaking "Xenon" pinball machine, created Coca-Cola’s pop-and-pour sound, designed Atari’s sound logo, played concerts all over the globe, and carved out a niche as one of the most creatively successful female composers in the world. In 2017 the documentary A Life in Waves about Ciani’s life and work was premiered
