Suzanne Ciani and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - Sunergy

This is my current candidate for best thing ever! Suzanne Ciani was a 1970s synth pioneer, and FRKWAYS paired her up with Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith (another Buchla synth enthusiast) as part of their series of intergenerational, improvisational releases. Beautiful sounds, beautiful visuals... This is what I've always wanted electronic music to be. The album is transcendent, and this film is just beautiful.

Kaitlyn is from Orcas Island in Washington State, was home-educated and then studied composition before discovering the Buchla. Here she is explaining what she does:

...and here she is playing some tracks, mostly (I think) from last year's album Ears
