#370 Suzanne Farrin

Suzanne Farrin is a composer and performer of the ondes Martenot, an early electronic instrument created by the engineer Maurice Martenot in the 1920s as a response to the simultaneous destruction and technological advances of WWI. 

Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times called her first opera, dolce la morte, a work of “shattering honesty.” Her debut recording, Corpo di Terra, was described in Timeout Chicago, “like field recordings from inside the cerebral cortex.” 

Her works are frequently performed at festivals around the world and she has performed in a wide range of film scores, and appeared as herself in an episode of Mozart in the Jungle.  Matthew Dotson talks with her about several exciting upcoming projects.
