20th Anniversary of send + receive: A Life in Waves

Thu, Sept 6 / 7 pm
Directed by Brent Whitcomb
2017, USA, 74 min

If you watched TV, went to the movies, or listened to the radio, you’ve probably heard Suzanne Ciani’s work, whether you knew it or not. Suzanne is a five-time Grammy  nominated composer, electronic music pioneer, and neo-classical recording artist whose work has been featured in countless commercials, video games, and feature films. This film explores Suzanne’s life and innovations through her own eyes, offering a feminine glimpse into the world of electronic music. Suzanne Ciani’s work can be heard in ads for brands such as Coca-Cola, Atari, Skittles, and Dial. Ciani also scored Lily Tomlin’s The Incredible Shrinking Woman, distinguishing her as the first solo female composer of a major Hollywood film.
