Announcing Suzanne Ciani as the Recipient of the 2017 Moog Innovation Award
Moog are pleased to announce that Suzanne Ciani will receive the 2017 Moog Innovation Award.
Suzanne Ciani is a powerful pioneer of electronic sound. From her synthesized soundscapes in the advertorial world (like the famous Coca Cola “pop and pour” sound) to her multidimensional synth albums (like Seven Waves), Ciani has expanded the very possibilities of synthesizers and inspired others to do the same. Her work as an early synthesist opened minds around the globe to exciting new sounds and introduced electronic instrumentation as a new form of expression.
Suzanne Ciani will be presented with the 2017 Moog Innovation Award at Moogfest in Durham, NC on May 20 at 2:30 PM in The Power Plant at the American Tobacco Campus (320 Blackwell Street, 27701). For more information on Moogfest, visit www.moogfest.com.
