Bio / info
Suzanne Ciani (born June 4, 1946) is an American pianist and music composer, who found early success with innovative electronic music. She received classical music training at Wellesley College and obtained her M.A. in music composition in 1970 at University of California, Berkeley, where she met and was influenced by the synthesizer designer Don Buchla. She studied computer generated music with John Chowning and Max Mathews at Stanford University's Artificial Intelligence Labs in the early 70s. She became known for generating sound effects on her synthesizers, and in 1981 she scored the Lily Tomlin movie The Incredible Shrinking Woman, distinguishing her as the first solo female composer of a major Hollywood film. Much of her recorded work has been in the New Age genre.
