Options September 27, 2016: SUZANNE CIANI
Modular synth pioneer, composer, sound designer and classically-trained pianist Suzanne Ciani discusses her first solo performance in NYC since 1975. Ciani is not only the first female composer to score a major Hollywood film (Joel Schumacher's 1981 "The Incredible Shrinking Woman"), but even more well known for her sound design for films such as "The Stepford Wives" (1975) and "Fame" (1980), and commercial work for the likes of Atari, PBS and Coca Cola (e.g., the famous "Pop and Pour" sound logo), not to mention providing the analog synths for Meco's disco version of the "Star Wars" soundtrack and the "rocket flight" in Starland Vocal Band's "Afternoon Delight." Recent releases by Finders Keepers have brought her music to the attention of an all new generation of fans.

Thanks for that link, Jake. I loved 3-2-1 Contact but forgot about that episode.

Prior to this my only memory of music from The Incredible Shrinking Woman was the theme song for 'Galaxy Glue'. Liking it.
Avatar Tue. 9/27/16 7:34pm Rich in Washington:

I need to see Incredible Shrinking Woman again. I haven't seen it since I was very young, so much of the subversive context was lost on me but I remember it being kind of sad, weird.
Avatar Tue. 9/27/16 7:35pm Devon E. Levins:

@melinda she wrote Galaxy Glue too. Instant request?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/27/16 7:37pm dale:

ha ha! love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 7:37pm melinda:

Haha! I thought she probably did that too. Nice to hear it again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/27/16 7:38pm melinda:

@Rich: that's how I remember it too.
