Hands On Show Report

Article from Electronics & Music Maker, February 1983

Turnkey's Hands On Show in the Clive Hotel, London on December 4th and 5th 1982 proved a resounding success. Musicians, engineers and music-lovers from all corners of the globe came to see displays of home recording equipment, professional multitrack machines, mixers, studio effects and accessories.

One of the highlights of the show was undoubtedly E&MM's own electro-music display, featuring much of the latest musical technology. E&MM projects such as the Digital Delay, Transpozer, ElectroMix 842 and Spectrum Sequencer Interface vied for space with the Elka Synthex, Roland Juno 60 and MC4, the alpha Syntauri, Korg Trident 2 and Memorymoog.

Mike Beecher's lectures made full use of all these, with the help of Assistant Editors Ken McAlpine and Mark Jenkins along with studio technician Glenn Rogers. Various guest artists also appeared on each day, with Dave Bristow playing the Yamaha CS-01, Pat Moraz on Minimoog and CS-01 and Rick Wakeman on almost everything!

Warren Cann of Ultravox, John Walters and Richard Burgess of Landscape and Richard Elen of Studio Sound dropped in for conversations, and Terry Lloyd demonstrated the alpha Syntauri computer instrument. Large and enthusiastic audiences attended each show, and a statistical analysis indicated that over half were regular readers.

We'd like to thank everybody who attended the Hands On Show for their support, and look forward to giving more electro-music exhibitions in the future.
