Source: The Lost Notes podcast dedicates an episode to Suzanne Ciani.
In 1968, Suzanne Ciani was a music student at UC Berkeley when she met Don Buchla. Buchla had just created one of the first electronic musical instruments, a modular synthesizer. It looked like an old telephone switchboard with knobs and wires, dials and faders. Ciani fell in love with it. And it became the catalyst to her career – one of the most consequential and influential music careers of the 20th century.
