“There’s something to be said about all music being some
translation of our languaging, our way of communicating.
It’s a language. This is a new language.”
The event consists of the following:
– Installation at the cinema foyer: 7.30pm
– Short performance in cinema: 8pm – 8.10pm
– A Life in Waves – Screening: 8.10pm – 9.25pm
– Short talk/discussion in cinema: 9.25pm – 10pm
As part of the Spazju Kreattiv programme, Electronic Music Malta, the Womens Rights Foundation and the Malta Sound Women Network, present the screening of the documentary premiere – ‘A Life in Waves’.
‘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 catalogue 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.
As this event is a celebration of the active involvement of women in electronic music, the Malta Sound Women Network will be showcasing an installation and performance immediately before the film. (Installation opens at 7.30pm) The screening will be followed by a short talk/discussion facilitated by members of the Women’s Rights Foundation and Electronic Music Malta.
‘A Life in Waves’ is supported by the US Embassy.
