When trying to put Susanna Ridler’s music into words, the description that her music is a very modern and cross-genre interpretation of the concept of fusion music seems to be appropriate.  In her compositions Susanna Ridler tries to build bridges between different styles as well as between artificial computer sounds and acoustic instruments, between tradition and modernity. She creates extremely colorful, complex and sophisticated sounds, a very unique and detailed sonic portrait that can hardly be pigeon-holed into one category. The way Susanna Ridler understands how to unite the different ingredients in captivating, immensely varied and intricate arrangements, proves her keen understanding of the different forms of music. Somewhere between the poles of pop, jazz, electronica, funk and rock, she knows how to give her music a form and bestow it with connectivity, despite its complexity.
