If you watched television, went to the movies, or listened to the radio in the 1980s and 1990s, you've heard Ciani's work, whether you knew it or not. From her earliest days learning the piano, to her multimillion-dollar advertising ventures, to her recent reconnection with her beloved Buchla synthesizer, the film is a deep dive into the life and work of America's first female synth hero. (2017, 75 min, digital) Part of: Global Sounds on Screen Jul 6 - Aug 13, 2017 Screening Room Not your typical concert movie series, this is a globe-trotting survey of films on music, struggle, joy, and dissent.
