I’m taking part in the second Electronic Music Open Mic and Forum (Manchester), this coming Saturday April 15th, 2017. I’ll being playing two of my songs live – one old one and one new. The old one is Half Past One, which was one of the demo tracks of the month in Future Music magazine a few years ago. The new one is as yet untitled.
The open mic night is at Fuel Cafe Bar on Wilmslow Road, Withington, Manchester, and starts at 7pm. There’ll be loads of great unknown and unsigned bands and solo artists there, so head on over and lend your support!
About the Electronic Music Open Mic and Forum
Started and run by spoken word and electronic music-maker, Martin Christie, aka Poet and the Loops, in early 2017, the Electronic Music Open Mic and Forum is the world’s first open mic night and forum purely focusing on music produced by electronic and digital means, including laptops, synths, drum machines, loop stations, groove boxes, sequencers, samplers, iPads, modular synths, keyboards, analogue and digital devices of all kinds. The first night was held in Manchester, and has since gone on to Sheffield, then back to Manchester, and is due to go to Huddersfield, Leeds, Bristol, and London.

Most synthesizers use a few common components: Oscillators, mixer, filter, LFO, ADSR Envelope. When you can identify each of these on any synthesizer, it’s a lot easier to get familiar with how it works.
