‘Suzanne Ciani is one of electronic music’s greatest pioneers’ Dazed and Confused
‘Her work effortlessly bridges the realms of the commercial and the avant garde, barely recognizing the distinction between the two’ Pitchfork
‘Ciani’s work offers a fascinating glimpse into an oft-neglected corner of electronic music history, one that is irresistibly appealing in a world of Moog fetishism and retromania.’ Line of Best Fit
We are honoured to present the legendary Suzanne Ciani as part of our second season of Luminate. The first female recipient of the Moog Innovation Award, is a composer, recording artist, and pioneer in the field of electronic music and sound design. Best-loved for her fifteen albums of original music featuring a broad array of approaches from pure electronic, to solo piano and jazz ensemble.

From contemporary orchestral composition to shimmering electronic sound worlds, musical expression is becoming less defined by genre, more framed by its emotional and cultural contexts.
Luminate taps into this bold, exploratory landscape in a series of shows that will provoke and inspire.
