Synth East sold out

Post by BJG145 »

Norwich isn't generally a mecca for modular users, but Robin Vincent has been involved in putting together "Synth East" in March featuring luminaries like Steve Davis and Look Mum No Computer. I'd been looking forward to this for ages, but unfortunately it's sold out already. Book early if it returns next year folks.

I'm thinking this could be an excuse for a 2024 Norwich SOSage.

Yes. I am that Linux nut {apparently now an 'elderly'}
Onwards and... err... sideways!

I could probably tie that in with a family visit so label me interested. :thumbup:

And of course Robin Vincent is a regular SOS contributor, so that's another plus! 8-)

I just realised that although the daytime exhibition is sold out, I could still pick up a ticket for the evening performance so that's something. :thumbup:

https://norwichartscentre.co.uk/event/s ... colk-void/

Nik Colk Void+ Finlay Shakespeare + Robin Vincent + Steve Davis

I see Steve Davis returns to Norwich later in March with The Utopia Strong supporting Steve Hillage. Didn't realise he was gigging on that level. (Quite tempted by that one too....is Hillage worth a watch? I've heard of him but not listened to his stuff. The venue's not my favourite so he'd have to be good.)

Norwich is so far away from me it might as well be Ganymede. :beamup:

I know, cross-country routes are shocking. Bristol <--> Norwich is about 6hrs by train. :thumbdown:

A bit far for me. Hopefully Radio Norwich will be able to spare one of their ace reporters to send in a report.

I thought it can't be that Steve Davis. Yet it is.
Steve is one of my Snooker heroes although now as an adult I couldn't tell him that.
Must be awkward for him when adult blokes say you were my hero.

Steve Hillage released this marvelous album in the 70s.

Also his System 7 project with Miquette Giraudy.

I saw System 7 at Camden RoundHouse I think 2018.
I'm not sure if Miquette was there I will have to check one of the vids I took.
They were ace if you dig this style of music.

Is Hillage worth a watch? My god, he is god AFAIC.
Trademark Glissando Guitar and master of delay, and of course, lead with Gong, my favourite band of all time.
I’ll have to check this gig out.
Hillage is also one of the nicest people you could hope to meet.

Ooh, he's playing in London April 1st. I had a copy of Motivation Radio as a teenager and "octave doctors" is such a beautiful track. Hmm, think I might just check this out....

I'll be there too!

We had the prototype EMS VCS3 at the Science festival this week (and an evening concert of Tristram Cary's music)—there's also the Norwich Synthesizer Group too.

We're a hotbed of wobblyness. UEA were at the forefront of electroacoustic music research until the philistines closed us down. Electronic Sound magazine is published here too.

I'm seeing Hilllage too—saw him lots in the '70s solo and with Gong.

Steve's a big experimental music fan. He brought Magma to the UK. I've been on his show and he has a really wide knowledge of left-field music. He's an interesting guy.
