In her varied career that would combine art gallery installations, major film soundtrackings and commissions for Atari, Suzanne Ciani’s earliest experiments remain some of her most challenging, beguiling and timeless... Flowers Of Evil ticks all the above boxes and flicks switches that would power-up a new uncharted universe of her own musical modernité. Finders Keepers present the first-ever release of these vital archive recordings.
Inspired by the Charles Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs Du Mal, specifically the poem Élévation, its 4-tracks feature a recital of the poem accompanied by Ciani on the Buchla. Ciani initially used her own voice in the recordings, before enlisting a French student to recite Élévation in French.
