CYMRU Beats 17 Modular Synth Meet Announced - Saturday June 17th, Cardiff
Full details: https://cymrubeats.com/cb17/
"Cymru Beats, the annual Welsh meeting for modular synthesiser enthusiasts, marks its third year in 2017.
We’re heading back to Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff again for a day of electronic music and sound, but this year with an even better venue, Chapter's Seligman Theatre.
The first modular synths were developed in the 1960s by legendary US synth makers RA Moog and Co. and the scene received a major injection of energy and popularity with the invention of the “Eurorack” system by Germanys Doepfer Musikelektronik in the 90s. The backlash against the computer and software, and the rush back to electronic analogue hardware is still exploding today.
As well as niche specialists there are many mainstream artists who have discovered the joy of the modular – including Depeche Mode, Coldplay, Lloyd Cole and Radiohead.
The evening performances will see some truly great and talented British electronic musicians and sound sculptors."
Performers for this year's event include Mylar Melodies, Nigel Mullaney & Ian Boddy, Martin Dubka, Wisdom Water, and Dr John Biddulph.
