Suzanne Ciani's Late Junction mixtape

Pioneering electronic composer, sound designer, and master of the Buchla synthesiser Suzanne Ciani plays 30 minutes of music from across the spectrum.

Pioneering electronic composer, sound designer, and master of the Buchla synthesizer Suzanne Ciani is the latest compiler of the Late Junction mixtape.

She has 30 minutes to make her musical mark on the programme, this time exploring the intersection where technology and creativity meet. Described as "America's first female synth hero", Ciani is one of the most innovative artists of the last forty years.

Working at the intersection of new age music, electronic experiments, and classical composition, her work has been heard in cinemas and concert halls, on adverts and pinball machines.
