We will have a full day of live modular/hardware sets in the "Old Marble Factory" area, whilst the "New Marble Factory" space will host the main arena to loads of our favourite synthesizer companies. Come and chat to the actual people behind the building of these machines and get "hands on" with their new bits of gear.
London Modular Alliance, Snooker/Synthesiser guru Steve Davis and Bristol's own "Future Sound Systems" Finlay Shakespeare will be joining a whole catalogue of live modular/hardware acts to be announced later this month.
Our first "Conversations with..." panel artist is Kahn from Bandulu discussing areas around Label branding, releases, and surviving within an oversaturated market.
Hodge will be playing a 2 hour set of unsigned music from producers that attend our monthly in-store Escher music events. Unsigned tracks can be submitted to the pool of tracks selected by Hodge by attending our Escher event last Thursday of every month and joining the group. More info shortly on the Escher event.
Dj Krust is renowned not only as one of the most important Drum and Bass innovators to have ever "really experienced" this cities musical change but his stand up, in depth production lectures are for those who really want to learn the psychology and mental thought process behind composition and production. From your initial musical ideas and direction through to personal inspiration and goals. This is a must!
In the build workshop area, Bastl, Error, Thonk and Patching Panda will be hosting a series of DIY modular sessions. These will be a separate pre-purchased ticket where build revenue will go direct to the company and you walk away with your own fully built module at the end of the session. Further details of each workshop and the specific modules available soon.
Ableton will also be running 2 workshops throughout the afternoon. A "beginners" session designed to get you started with Live; building sounds, loops, sequences, FX chains and using the Push controller. The later session will be focusing on Max For Live, showing how you can expand and alter Live for your personal project, idea or style. By the end of the workshop we aim to have built a simple Max for Live device with ideas of how to expand it further yourself at home.
Bring your laptops to these sessions!
We have tons of other artist info to release on the event shortly however thats for another day.
Please be aware that some of the areas being used for the event will be on the upper levels of Motion (mainly the Discussion and Ableton sessions).
