International Synth Day
Without synthesizers, electronic music would not be the same. May 23rd, 2019, Robert Moog’s birthday, will mark the third synthesizer day worldwide. Fault Radio is participating with Synth City 2019 and other global radio stations like Red Light Radio, Worldwide FM, and Teder.FMto celebrate this day with a special broadcast.
Join us on this day as we peek into the mind of American engineer, musician, and founder of the synthesizer company Sequential, Dave Smith. Among other things, Dave Smith is the man responsible for the first commercial polyphonic and microprocessor-controlled synthesizer, the Prophet-5.
To help out with interviewing and exploring the mind of this electronic music pioneer we are enlisting the help of San Francisco based synthesizer composer, Bleie. In addition, we will have a private performance by Carson Dayand an after-celebration at Robotspeak.
Don’t miss out on this exclusive opportunity to learn more about the wide and wonderful world of synthesizers!
