About the film: Our interest in Suzanne Ciani stems from her music. Her album “Seven Waves,” led us to a rich catalog full of sonic experimentations we’d heard before. The Columbia Films and Atari audio logos, and the Coca-Cola “Pop N’ Pour” sound effect had all graced our ears several years before we could pronounce “modular synthesizer.” Once we discovered what it took for Suzanne to reach those commercial heights–her apprenticeship with Don Buchla, rejections from record labels, near-homelessness on the streets of New York, and a bout with breast cancer–we knew we had to tell her story.
