Synthesizer day now

This Wednesday in London we will celebrate our first synthesizer day at Rough Trade East. Starting at 2pm there will be workshops on modular systems with Andreas Schneider, Holger Zapf will be introducing the Folkstrautonium by Trautoniks over a Vermona ReTubeverb,  Steve Jones will be playing beats on a brandnew VXXY by cronic, Adam Lacey will perform the Alphasphere, Martin Klang brings his blipbox 4CV and Franz from Berlin will be playing the Testsalon. Later on there will be Wolfgang Seidel – founding member of Ton Steine Scherben – playing a Kassetten Konzert to finish the day with a good performance for all of us.  I am looking forward meeting you there hoping for a good athmosphere and a nice ambient, with warm regards from somewhere on the Autobahn (!). If you dont know about our London showroom yet, look this little film to understand – wednesday will be different...

Eagan Matrix on Haken
