Music-Making kits for all
Two long awaited items appear at last. First, the ElectroMix 842 which is in constant use in our electro-music studio. (If you haven't noticed, our aim is to furnish it almost completely with E&MM projects!) Secondly, the superb Amdek kits have now reached our shores, and we'll have a strong involvement with these in future issues (in addition to our usual projects). Each kit is built, tested and recorded on E&MM cassettes to ensure it meets our own standards — and yours too. The Amdek range should ensure that every one of our readers does build at least one project from our pages.
With Sinclair's new ZX Spectrum, the talk of the micro enthusiasts, we've started our own series of music making this month using its BEEP function. There are also rather more sophisticated things in the pipeline!
The very good response to our cassette column is now revealing contributions with individual artistic qualities in their presentation aurally, verbally and pictorially. Keep them coming — wherever you are — and this month, just to rally some interest on the education side, I'll give away a new electronic music LP to the first 40 or so school music teachers that would find it useful for their students. So, pupils and teachers alike, if you're short on electronic music LPs in your music classroom, here's your chance to put things right!
Finally, we welcome Tony Halliday to the E&MM staff as Advertising Manager. His long experience in the music industry, with companies that include HH Electronics, Carlsbro, RSD and CBS, has already given him strong links with sales and marketing people in the U.K. and abroad. He'll be pleased to hear from potential advertisers.
Enjoy exciting electro-music!
