Suzanne Ciani is maybe not a widely-known figure, but, if you're from hte US, you've probably heard her music (and out-of-this-world electronic sound imagery) she made for TV commercials or films. She was called the "Diva of the diode", because her early music was very much based on eerie electronic sounds generated by synthesizers, vocoders, amplifiers and God knows what equipment else.

Ciani also released several albums. I have only this one, but judging from the titles of the others and the music I heard on the Internet, her later work was more classical-music inspired (and palyed on the piano), while the early works were more electroni (but I may ne wrong).

The Velocity of Love is her second, I think, album and it is a pure electronic heaven. You can also hear piano passages here (notably on the title track), but generally the most of the soundscapes was made - luckily for me :) - with electronic equipment.

What can I say about this music? It is marvellous. Delicate, sensual. The music is about LOVE! The first track (Eight Wave) is actually a kind of link to the previous album, titled "Seven Waves", and it stands out in a way, but the rest is very coherent collection of soundscapes with beautiful melodies and heavenly harmonies. We could say this is a new age album, but not a typical new age bubble gum elevator music. This is a heartfelt compilation of electronic moods for lovers and about love. Wonderful, chilling, touching and romantic.

Vangelis helped Ms Ciani on three tracks (however he was listed as a co-performer only on later releases, not this one), which speaks for itself. You can clearly hear his influence on the longer songs. And his sensitivity fits perfectly with Ms Ciani's own musical outlook.

Space Age love songs 29 Nov 2002
By John Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Suzanne has bridged classical and electronic music to create her most heartfelt release to date. Her delicate touch is used to it's greatest effect in these lilting love songs. On the title track, her most passionate playing is in full force. However, her sound is as expansive as it is passionate. The depth of her moods is conveyed through her phrasing of time and space in her harmonies and solos. She demonstrates her mastery not only on the piano, but on electronic instruments on tracks, "Lay down beside me" and "Malibuzios." Suzanne creates expansive moods while playing romantic melodies.

Very relaxing music; great used as background music 21 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD was one of the first new age music CD's that I bought. These songs have played in the background many-a-times while I do my physics homework both in undergraduate, and now in graduate school! Well worth purchasing, although I do tend to like the Wave Live! album from 1997 a bit better.

Exquisitely Stunning Conclusion and Sequel To Her First Album 26 April 2013
By Gryphon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an incredible conclusion as well as sequel to her first album, Seven Waves. The apex was the track, Velocity of Love, which still stands as probably her finest creation. While she has created so many beautiful and serene compositions on all her later albums, this one cut still stands out above the rest. She was sometimes referred to as the First Lady of New Age and rightly so as she was a pioneer in this genre back in the early '80s along with other greats of that genre like Peter Buffet, Lanz, Speer and Spheeris, to name just a few. It's interesting to note that she had to start this endeavor in Japan because the US music industry wasn't ready for this type of music at that time.

As wonderful as this recording is, the vinyl version is still superior as it provides the full range of the audio spectrum which is not usually available on CDs due to sampling rates and other factors. Nevertheless, whichever format you choose, you can't go wrong with the exquisitely beautiful album.
