The HAOMA Radio is a growing feeling curated by Mark "Frosty" McNeill – hand-selected sounds that tap into the inner-verse in an effort to nurture growth, peace, and general good vibes among humans and plants alike.

Tune in

Suzanne Ciani has crafted some of the most iconic tones to have graced our universe. An early proponent of the Buchla Synthesizer, Ciani helped bring the instrument's distinct characteristics to widespread ears and her sound design output seeped into the world's subconscious through commercial jingles, pinball machines, and corporate audio logos through the 80s and 90s. Ciani's most beloved work though, comes in the form of her lushly contoured albums which have garnered five Grammy Nominations in the Best New Age category. Now more than ever, Suzanne Ciani makes music on her own terms and from her seaside home in Northern California she continues to compose works that transcend circuitry to elevate the soul.

WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST MEMORY OF A PLANT?

I used to sit in a huge tree across the street from my house and put my arms around a big branch, sit quietly and listen to its life pulse for a timeless expanse.

WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU HAVE EVER LEARNED FROM A PLANT?

Patience.

WHAT IS THE LONGEST RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE EVER HAD WITH A PLANT?

My husband and I planted a tree together as part of our divorce therapy. That was 19 years ago and the tree is now a towering redwood and measures our ongoing friendship!
