"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, to her successes in the world of New Age music, to her recent re-connection with her beloved Buchla synthesizer, the film is a journey into Suzanne's mind, offering a feminine glimpse into the often complicated world of electronic music. Utilizing a wealth of archival footage and Suzanne’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.
