commune's monthly film club returns to our fully renovated cinema space this September with a free screening of A Life In Waves a documentary exploring the life and innovations of composer and electronic music pioneer, Suzanne Ciani.
To complement the screening commune have joined forces with London Modular Alliance — an East London based 3-man collective that lies somewhere between a shop and a cult — to bring a free modular workshop to our Tunnels.
This is your chance to receive expert tuition and get hands on with modular synths. Whether you're just curious, a complete beginner or a passionate amateur, this serves as an ideal introduction or a chance to further hone your skills.
The screening will be hosted in our 100-seat cinema space; the event is free with booking required. A very limited number of walk in tickets will be available on the day, on a first come, first served basis.
A Life in Waves explores the life and innovations of music composer Suzanne Ciani. From her earliest days learning the piano, the her multi-million dollar advertising ventures, to her successes in the world of New Age music, to her recent re-connection with her beloved Buchla synthesizer, the film is a journey into Suzanne's mind, offering a feminine glimpse into the often complicated world of electronic music. Utilising a wealth of archival footage and Suzanne's endless catalog of music, A Life In Waves is a nostalgic, visually-compelling look at one woman's journey and the trials she overcame to succeed in a traditionally male-dominated art form.
