Join researchers, designers and musicians in this workshop to explore historical, current and future perspectives on sound synthesis, digital musical instrument design and electronic music performance. The event will feature hands-on demonstrations for attendees to try out commercial and in-development synthesizers, controllers, software, digital musical instruments and more. The demo session is followed by short talks and a round table discussion by panelists representing a wide variety of perspectives on synthesis and electronic music.


The first 25 attendees will receive a discount card to Moog Audio. 

Plus we will give away two licences from Applied Acoustics Systems (AAS): 

- Chromaphone 2 (Acoustic Object Synthesizer)

- String Studio VS-3 (String Oscillator Synthesizer)
