Suzanne Ciani - Lixiviation
There was a time in the late 70's and early 80's when the synthesizer was touted as the future of music. When implemented correctly, the instrument was able to feel like a beacon from another world and impart a sense of the both the
idealistic and dystopian futures that were predicted in much of the era's science fiction. Suzanne Ciani became a part of this lexicon through her work in commercials and films that captured this sense of futurism at the time. She'd created iconic soundscapes for Atari, Coca-Cola and the sound effects featured in the Meco Star Wars Theme. However, she was also able to translate this sense of wonder with her instrument into expansive synth pieces that fell way beyond the commercial scope she'd made her name in. B-Music has gathered up many of these pieces and laid them alongside bits of her commercial work and the two worlds fold and unfold each other into a tantalizing love for sound and the limits of the synthesizer medium. As one of the pioneers of women in what was typically boys club of experimental music Ciani asserted herself among friends and co-workers like Vangelis and Harald Bode and any fans of their work would be remiss not to check her out.

Saw a really great clip of Ciani on some public access show explaining what synths were. she was the most mellow person ever. I sampled it and made a track.

Interesting stuff. Could you bring back the Garage rock Jukeboxes you used to do? It's be nice to get some good old Nuggets-style tracks every now and again
