Documentary will chart Ciani's work with various music forms; watch a trailer below

A new documentary will look into the life and career of Suzanne Ciani, famed for decades of synth experimentations.

Premiering at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival in March, the film, called A Life In Waves, will follow Cianni's development from learning the piano early in her career through to experimenting with and later rediscovering the Buchla synthesiser. You can check out a trailer for the film above.

The documentary is made by filmmakers Brett Whitcomb (director), Bradford Thomason (writer, editor) and Ali Clark (executive producer), and combines archival footage of the musician and naturally features a soundtrack of her music. The film will also take the opportunity to look at Ciani's connection with Don Buchla of whom she was a student, who passed away last year.
