Prior to 'Electrifying China', the youngest masterpiece of modular Buchla-synth fanatics and pioneers Suzanne Ciani and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, will be screened. 'Sunergy' is the documentary part that offers an extra, visual dimension to their record. Ciani and Smith have orchestrated their varying approaches to their Buchla machines into a bed of interlocking synth and melodic patterns; a Vivaldi-like stream of aquatic sounds that is also a shared expression of their hometown Bolinas, a major source of inspiration and artistic haven. A true synth odyssee.
