A LIFE IN WAVES

Part of Doctober and Music City Mondays.

A LIFE IN WAVES explores the life and innovations of composer and electronic music pioneer, Suzanne Ciani. Classically trained as a young person, she arrived at Berkeley just in time to have her Chopin-centric focus permanently altered by the 1968 student riots. Diving full-on into avant-electronic experimentation, her forays led to her multi-million dollar advertising ventures, producing sounds for the likes of Coca Cola and Atari among others—allowing her the creative space to combine her early electronic work and classical training into a new style that would later become known as “New Age” music. The film is a journey into Suzanne's mind, offering a feminine glimpse into the often complicated and male-dominated world of sound production and electronic music, and is scored by Ciani herself.

“Artfully assembled… a must-see for anyone interested in the creative accomplishments of unsung women who, like Ciani, played revolutionary roles in male-dominated fields.” —Lisa Jo Sagolla, Film Journal International
