A Life in Waves
USA, 74 min., Color
“I wanted technology to be sensual, that was always my directive.” Early synth music pioneer Suzanne Ciani was behind some of the most innovative sounds and jingles of the 70s and 80s, including spots for Atari and Coca-Cola and multiple soundtracks. A LIFE IN WAVES utilizes a wealth of archival footage from Suzanne’s endless catalog of music. It’s a compelling look at one woman’s ability to break into a mostly male-dominated field, against all odds.
