The Everything ARP Symposium Coming to Berklee College of Music

via Berklee

"David Friend Recital Hall

921 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02115, United States

The David Friend Recital Hall.

The Electronic Production and Design Department announces the 2015 Everything ARP Symposium. The panelists for the event will be founder Alan R. Pearlman and former ARP employees, industry representatives, scholars, musicians, and producers.

ARP Instruments, active from 1969 to 1981, was a pioneering company in the development of the electronic musical instrument industry. The ARP 2600 and ARP Odyssey helped define the sound of pop and jazz fusion music from that time, with major artists such as the Who, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, and George Duke using ARP instruments to develop their signature sounds. This symposium will serve as a forum to discuss how these important instruments were developed, marketed, and used by artists. With software emulations of the 2600 and Odyssey, and Korg's recent release of a new hardware version of the Odyssey, the early achievements by ARP Instruments remain relevant to contemporary artists.

Admission: Free"
