Suzanne Ciani: Waltzing with the Buchla
Back in April, Jasmin Hoek had the pleasure of sitting down with Suzanne Ciani for a one-to-one. A month later, the groundbreaking electronic composer went on to become the first-ever female recipient of the Moog Innovation Award. Seven Waves – Suzanne’s debut album, may have been conceived back in 1979, but its title seems ever so significant today as we bear witness to the undulating waves generated by her revolutionary work over the years. From the sexy voice in Xenon pinball machines to the pop-fizz of a Coca-Cola can, to Hollywood movie scores and Grammy-nominated compositions, Suzanne Ciani has been able to captivate a different audience with every passing decade. As yet another wave sweeps up this year for the “diva of the diode”, let’s take a moment to enjoy this interview from April.
