Synthesized celebrates the computer and synthesiser — and how the two technologies grew up together.
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 and the Greengate DS:4 introduced us to a new way of making music with digital sampling. Without computers we wouldn’t have FM, wavetable, additive and phase distortion synthesis — or even be able to save the sounds on our analog synthesiser.
As ever, we’ll have the our collection of synthesisers 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.
