THURSDAYS // 7:30pm // SchneidersLaden

The school holidays are over – time for another workshop series at SchneidersLaden! After hosting dozens of manufacturer and artist workshops over the past years, SchneidersLaden is happy to continue this tradition with another series in August and September.

We invited manufacturers that developed new inspiring machines in past few months, we invited veterans from the scene, we’ll have a SchneidersLaden Spezial and we’ll talk about how to start your personal Buchla-experience. Be ready for modular performances, presentations and talks with Snazzy FX, ALM Busy Circuits, Verbos Electronics, Shakmat Modular, Flame, the SchneidersLaden Team and listen to the sounds of a Buchla Music Easel. 

For all who want to know what to expect from these workshops, check out the video above and visit the SchneidersLaden YouTube or Vimeo channels!

Upcoming workshops:

15. August – Snazzy FX

We’ll start off on Thursday 15th of August with a veteran of the scene Dan Snazelle – Snazzy FX. One day before you can see one of his live techno sets at OHM. During the workshop we’ll also hear some of his music, but will mainly focus on his eye-catching modular and non-modular designs.

22. August – ALM Busy Circuits

A week later on the 22nd of August, we are happy to have Matthew Allum from ALM Busy Circuits here for a workshop and performance! We’ll have a close look at some of his developments – of cause the new SALMPLE 8-channel sampler module and the sooo handy Pamela’s New Workout.

29. August – SchneidersLaden Spezial

By the end of August – the 29th – we are doing a little SchneidersLaden Spezial – with lots of music by our team and conversations about what we are doing and why we are doing the things we do. Come by, enjoy a nice summer evening with the SchneidersLaden Team.

05. September – Flame

The first workshop in September is about an often overlooked brand from Berlin – Flame. With their new line of modules and their astounding stand-alone synthesizer Mäander, Flame is doing it again: Bringing highly specialized and tools with interesting performance features. And of cause we’ll have a listen to the Flame Mäander, which is a unique synthesizer concept that no one saw coming – it sounds fantastic!

12. September – Shakmat Modular

September 12th is reserved for Shakmat Modular! Constantly putting out new modules that bring more flexibility to all your clock-needs or solve the little annoying problems, for example the little helper HiPass. Francois is also preparing a little performance for us and will talk us through his patch – we are looking forward to this!

19. September – Verbos Electronics

The next workshop date got the title: Verbos Takeover! Be prepared for a full evening of Verbos Electronics goodness – this includes the Modular Beginner Workshop at 6pm! Followed by the main workshop where we’ll have a look at the current line of Verbos modules and …let’s all hope for a couple of minutes of Marks legendary live sets – fingers crossed.

26. September – Starting with Buchla

The last date of this workshop series is all about Buchla. One of the most iconic names in modular history is still a mystery to most – so we’ll have a look at the Music Easel, their modular line and we’ll listen to some of the sounds that build the legacy of this brand. So this evening is an invitation to all that are not familiar with Buchla and want to get their head around these special synthesizers. To get an impression of how it feels to dive into the rabbit hole named Buchla Music Easel, we invited one of our customers to talk about his first months with this instrument.


And don’t forget that there always is a Modular Beginner Workshop before the events described above. The Beginner Workshop starts at 6pm and all participants are invited to also join the main workshop too! All other events begin at 7:30pm and they are suitable for beginners too.
