Suzanne Ciani – Fish Music (RSD 2017)



SKU: FKSP011 Categories: ,

Product Description

As the first and only dedicated label to liberate the private, non-
commercial artefacts from Suzanne Ciani’s groundbreaking Ciani
Musica studio vault, Finders Keepers Records presents an
incredible cryogenically suspended slice of precious precocious
immersive fledgling synthesis for this ultra limited RSD 2107
Ironically well removed from the intension of phonographic
application in its original inception, this anti-pop wash of marine
biology modular synth sound design was originally proposed by
a very young Ciani for exclusive infinite loop airings in a giant
mid-American shopping mall aquarium in 1977.
Potentially conjuring ambient scenes from the consumerist
satirical Dawn Of The Dead while sonically ushering a genuine
desire for total musical science reevaluation/revolution via a
decidedly mainstream portal, the Fish Music project is a striking
eerie example of how Ciani’s “Subversion With A Smile”
approach led to a long career breaking boundaries in formal
music technology, film scoring, the advertising industry and
gender equality – all of which has continued to fuel her passion
and channel her life lust and artistic appetite much to the
benefit of future ambitious trajectories of music.
Owing much to the memory of genuine synthesiser maverick
Don Buchla this conceptual release is very much the product of
artistic America at its progressive halcyon but, with its illustrious
and idiosyncratic composition, communicates subtle undertones
of Suzanne’s feminine Italian origins which seldom reside
outside of the efforts of Roman library composers like Casa,
Tomassi, Raskovich and siblings Antonioni and Maria Teresa
Sourced from Suzanne’s private archive and available here for
the first time ever.
Presented here as an isolated one-sided
pressing on aquatic clear vinyl and including the original press
release and a press cutting this limited release proceeds a wider
series of unreleased Ciani work for 2017. File under… water.
Limited to 500 copies for the UK and Eire
