Now that the festive season is here again, we're pleased that we'll have the chance to meet many of our readers at the Hands On Show on December 4th & 5th at the Clive Hotel, Primrose Hill, London.
We've put together a special Christmas package for the show that should entice every electro-musician along!
For a start our Editor, Mike Beecher, will be doing Electro-Music lectures that will feature E&MM projects as well as introducing some of the latest instruments from major music companies - there'll be Roland's new computer system with MC-4 and Juno 60 amidst Amdek VDUs, Korg's Trident Mk II, Rhodes Chroma from CBS, Yamaha's CS-01 and CE-20, the Elka Synthex, Alpha Syntauri, latest Casio keyboards, and some specials from Syco Systems including the Emulator. The 1½ hour lectures will be at 10.30 a.m., 1 p.m., 3.30 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8.30 p.m. on both days.
Then we've invited several of E&MM's featured top musicians to appear at individual lectures over the two days: Rick Wakeman, Patrick Moraz, Warren Cann & Midge Ure of Ultravox, Richard Burgess & John Walters of Landscape, Jon Lord, Dave Bristow, Alan Townsend and Richard Elen. We're also hoping that Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream and our special friend Kate Bush might pay us a visit. No doubt this will create a tremendous demand for the lectures - you can reserve your place and, if your copy of E&MM did not have a free ticket, you can obtain one from Turnkey, (Contact Details).
It promises to be a great opportunity for musicians to get together in a friendly informal atmosphere - we'll see you there!
