Sunergy is a film by Sean Hellfritsch that documents the collaboration, of the same name, of synthesists Suzanne Ciani & Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.
Sunergy was recorded in the Bolinas home where Ciani has lived for the last twenty-four years. Her living room overlooks the Pacific Ocean from a cliffside perch, creating an idyllic, inspired setting for music making.
Setting up their synths side-by-side, Ciani and Smith took turns keeping time and freely improvising for the album sessions.
As a complete piece, Sunergy is shaped by slow, pulsing forms and sinuous, melodic sequences that conjure both an oceanic world and the unlimited sound made possible by modular processing.
