5.0 out of 5 stars NOT "the American Delia Derbyshire", 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lixiviation: 1969-1985 (Audio CD)
It's hard to think of a better example of lazy journalism. Suzanne operated in an entirely different way to Delia, using the Buchla synthesizer, different compositional techniques and in different media.

The music is sophisticated, warm and accessible. No small achievement in any context.

Many thanks to Finders Keepers for this release. I hope it wasn't them who came up with that appalling comparison. Both artists deserve so much more appropriate promotion.

Highest possible recommendation.

Excluding an extremely limited edition cassette only release via their website, this is the first release in a creative archive based relationship between Finders Keepers Records and Grammy nominated American/Italian composer Suzanne Ciani. During the 70s and 80s Ciani was a ground-breaking and influential musician in the field of synthetic and computerised sound and was more or less a latter day US equivalent of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop's Delia Derbyshire. Consisting of jingles produced for companies such as Atari & Coca Cola and experimental hypnotic soundscapes from the 70s and 80s there is, despite the overall electronic and synthesized sound, a heart to much of the music here. Clocking in (at an all too brief) 34 minutes and featuring liner notes on all of the tracks by Ciani, this is another exemplary release by Finders Keepers Records. Recommended.

You can really hear where Steve Miller got his synthesizer sound for "Fly Like An Eagle." Clearly, someone turned him on to Suzanne's work, and that's obvious on this CD. Plus, she used a Buchla instead of a Moog, which everyone was using at the time. Very interesting work.
