SOUNDMIT 2020 - Intervista Esclusiva a Suzanne Ciani con Johann Merrich e Giorgio Li Calzi


"Abbiamo intervistato Suzanne Ciani!

La sua vita con il Buchla, dalla fabbrica sulla West Coast al suo ruolo di compositrice e di donna nel mondo della musica elettronica degli ultimi 50 anni.

Suzanne is a five-time Grammy award-nominated composer, electronic music pioneer, and neo-classical recording artist who has released over 20 solo albums including "Seven Waves," and "The Velocity of Love," along with a landmark quad LP “LIVE Quadraphonic,” which restarted her Buchla modular performances. Her work has been featured in films, games, and countless commercials as well.

She was inducted into the first class of Keyboard Magazine's Hall of Fame alongside other synth luminaries, including Bob Moog, Don Buchla and Dave Smith and received the Moog Innovation Award. Most recently, she is the recipient of the Independent Icon Award from A2IM.

Suzanne has provided the voice and sounds for Bally's groundbreaking "Xenon" pinball machine, created Coca-Cola’s pop-and-pour sound, designed logos for Fortune 500 companies, and carved out a niche as one of the most creatively successful female composers in the world. A Life in Waves, a documentary about Ciani’s life and work, debuted at SXSW in 2017 and is available to watch on all digital platforms.

Ciani is a graduate of Wellesley College and holds a Masters in Music Composition from the University of California, Berkeley."

All Roland Boutique JP08 Synth tune - Jamuary 14 - 4 JP08s in Ableton Live with a drum rack

Expanding Sound

"I made a little quick tune using just the Roland Boutique JP08 and a drum rack in Ableton Live. Just a little delay on the Boutique and some slight eq but not all that much. I thought it came out pretty fun. Every now and again I like to pull out this JP08 and remind myself why I wanted it. Sure the knobs are small, and when you change something you have to be extra fine with it, but I do think it sounds good for what it is, which is a just a fun small desktop synth. Hope you enjoy it!"

Ricky Tinez: Trying to Make a Sound I heard in my Head // What is Key Tracking? w/ the Novation Peak

Ricky Tinez

"What is Key tracking? I've been loving using keyboard tracking as a modulation source for weirder things. Outside of the typical Filter tracking, key tracking can be used as a source, on most synthesizers with a good mod matrix, to modulate a vast number of things. In this video i try and sound design a sound i heard in my head while driving, using key tracking as the core modulation source.

For Science | #Maths x 4 = ?

Cinematic Laboratory

"When I got another Maths to complete the modules of the Tape & Microsound - in separates - I felt the eurorack addiction like never before. Who the fork needs four maths. However, four Maths adds up to eight triangle waveform cycles which reminds me of the Lyra-8 and in theory it's possible to patch them up so they can feedback on themselves. I did not go that far, even though I prepared a case with a Lion matrix in it. Having some help from two ModDemix modules was enough to bring them together. As for the addiction, I feel a bit better now. Been there, done that. Now it's time to let go."
