Background info

This concert is a quadraphonic experience. Four equally powered speakers in opposite corners will create a hypnotic surround sound experience, controlled by Suzanne. Suzanne and Simon explain.

Suzanne Ciani starts all her live shows with the sounds of the ocean. She explains the importance of the ocean in her life and music, and why it is essential in her performance.

The arrangers share about their proces in creating the orchestral parts, from Suzanne’s demo to ideas to the charts.
