Fairlight restorer Robbie Puricelli got in touch to let us know about an event in Cambridge at the Centre for Computing History called Synthesized running 26th + 27th June.
The event celebrates the computer and synthesizer, how the two technologies are intertwined.
This year, Synthesized will bring you some of the landmark machines from the last 30 years that have shaped and transformed how music is made. The Fairlight, PPG and the Greengate DS:4 introduced us to a new way of making music with digital sampling.
As ever, we’ll have the our collection of synthesiser out for everyone to play on - bring your own headphones! We’ll also have demonstrations of the iconic synthesisers and computer music systems of the 80s and 90s, plus some examples of the very latest technologies too. Keep checking back to see what’s happening!
Tickets are available now priced at a reasonable £12 for the two days.
We hook up a bunch of synths - now where's my cape?
