Synthesizer Ensemble Workshop Inspired by Suzanne Ciani

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In her live modular performances, electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani uses four sets of predefined pitches, each in a 16-step sequencer, that serve as the basic for the tonality of an improvised performance. In this hands-on workshop, participants will use tempo-synced Moog Mother 32 synthesizers, set up with Suzanne’s tone rows, to create improvised mini performances. Participants will learn basic ideas about how to create this type of electronic music, how to shape the sound of a synthesizer, and how a group of synthesizers so they can perform together.
