A reminder that it is our rescheduled Live Sound Installation at CET in Coventry tomorrow. The Synthcurious curators will be joined by local musician Tim Seeley for what promises to be a truly unique sonic experience.
The performance will start at 12 noon with a 440Hz tone. After that, anything is possible, as the event will involve live modular patching and synth programming.
Synthcurious will be joined at tomorrows event by local musician, Tim Seeley.
This is not the first time we have collaborated with Tim. He played a key role in The Tin Music and Arts and Synthcurious schools project for the Deliaphonic event, devising and delivering the in-school sessions, as well as playing a central role in the performances at Coventry Cathedral on the afternoon of the event.
The visuals for tomorrows event will be provided by Tschock.

A big thank you to Steve at Thonk for sponsoring our event again this year.
Thonk specialise in modular synthesiser kits and accessories. As DIY equipment building is one of our favourite things, and something we want to encourage more people to do, this makes Thonk an ideal sponsor for Synthcurious.
Check out his website. There are kits on there for all budgets, and for all capabilities.
We plan to do some DIY workshops in future, where we will be on hand to help you build your own equipment. If you are interested in taking part, and/or have some ideas on what you would like to build, then get in touch.
British composer and experimental music artist Christopher James Chaplin studied the piano with Irene Denereaz in Vevey/Switzerland before moving to London in the early 80ies. In 2009 he was invited by Viennese label Fabrique to collaborate with electronic musician Thomas Pötz aka Kava on “Seven Echoes”, an album released in 2010 and presented live at the Art Brut Museum Gugging in Austria.
There he met electronic music pioneer Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster, Harmonia) who later invited Christopher to take part in a “Late Junction” session for BBC Radio 3. The result of this second collaboration eventually led to the album “King of Hearts”, released in 2012. In the following years Chaplin and Roedelius performed around the world.
