Join us for the first edition of our new Ambient Church Listening Room series, presented in partnership with Ace Hotel Brooklyn.
We’ll host an intimate evening in the Atrium room at Ace Hotel Brooklyn with synthesizer pioneer Suzanne Ciani as she shares an hour of vinyl selections that inspired her, followed by a Q&A about her music and her storied career.
Drinks will be available for purchase at the bar. Seating for this event is extremely limited. Proof of vaccination is required for entry, and we encourage attendees to wear masks during the program.
This event is in conjunction with Suzanne’s performance at Ambient Church on the previous day, Saturday, March 5 at 3:00 pm.
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.
Ambient Church is a nomadic experiential event series dedicated to working with artists to bring new ecologies to architecturally unique spaces through transcendent audio and visual performance.
