Suzanne Ciani & Metropole Orkest

Metropole Orkest returns to the Melkweg for the official opening concert of the Amsterdam Dance Event. This year’s collaborator is the electronic music pioneer and ‘Diva of the Diode’ Suzanne Ciani. Ciani will lead the Metropole Orkest into her mesmerizing quadraphonic world of electronic music.

Suzanne Ciani, trained as a classical composer, became a pioneer of electronic modular performance in the late 1960s, performing live concerts on the analog modular Buchla synthesizer. She also carved out a spot for herself as an acclaimed sound designer for films, games, and advertising. Having released over twenty solo albums, the 2018 album “LIVE Quadraphonic” led her back into performing live all around the world on the Buchla 200e. The instrument is the modern version of the analog modular synthesizer that Suzanne played throughout the 1970s, designed by visionary Don Buchla.

The one-off performance with Metropole Orkest at the Melkweg will feature Ciani controlling the spatial movement of the sound in a quadraphonic speaker set up. Four equally powered speakers in opposite corners will create a hypnotic surround sound experience where electronic and acoustic instruments are intertwined.

Tickets on sale from Friday, May 13th at 10:00 CET.

Festival FAQ

Yes. After one online and one daytime festival, we are fully gearing up for a full ADE 2022 festival program!

The latest Dutch press conference mandates that clubs, venues and indoor events are forced to close between 00:00 and 06:00 CET. This means ADE is preparing to shift it's events to daytime. Over the coming days, the ADE team and the Amsterdam city council are examining the details of the new regulations for each type of event within the total ADE offering.

Also, all events need to have a COVID-health-check prior to the event.

If you are planning a stay in the Netherlands then be aware that you must follow the Dutch advice and rules to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please follow the advice of your government and check the Dutch guidelines before planning to travel.

For (individual) festival tickets make sure to check out our program and simply add tickets to your basket as you explore all events.

Tip: Filter the program by "Show only events with available tickets" to get a quick view.

We dance together, so please be mindful of yourself and each other.
