A Life in Waves explores the life and innovations of composer and electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani. From her earliest days learning the piano, to her multi-million dollar advertising ventures, successes in the world of New Age music, and re-connection with her beloved Buchla synthesizer, the film offers a glimpse into Ciani’s mind and the often complicated world of electronic music. Utilizing a wealth of archival footage and Ciani’s endless catalog of music, A Life in Waves is a nostalgic, visually compelling look at one woman’s journey, and the trials she overcame to succeed in a traditionally male-dominated art form.
