As we have covered over the past months, we are very proud to have become one of the media partners forÂ Soundmit, the International Sound Summitâ€‹, the only Italian event dedicated to the world of electronic music instrumentsÂ and synthesizers akaÂ the largest sector event in Southern Europe.
We’re not alone in it, the big media crew is made up of these other nice people:Â
Ask.audio,Â Audio Central Magazine,Â Audio Fader,Â Electronic Musician,Â Freakout Magazine online,Â Kadenze,Â Gear Junkies,Â Matrixsynth,Â Sonic State,Â Ultrasonica.it
Thanks to the success of the previous editions of TORINO SYNTH MEETINGÂ (More than 2500 visitorsÂ in 2016, workshops and showcases, gigs and live sets), the organisersÂ are collecting the memberships of many national and international exhibitors. The list of the confirmedÂ exhibitors can be found here, and wow, that feels nice: almost 40 Italian and international brands have joined the initiative and many others are coming.
They will present major innovations in the world of musical instruments; lots to see during the first week of November.
Here you get three tasters:
Audio-dj, rotary mixer made in Italy
Audio-DJÂ is the brand that represents the “fusion” between theÂ Audiosolution LabÂ and the professional DJ’s.
This small company operates in ItalyÂ and the entire production-chain begins from skilled craftsmen, nothing is left to chance, the first interest is to create, touch and use audio objects. No magic tricks involved, insteadÂ there’s the desire to create something unique that can remain, to witness what has been done.
Killing Toys, Eurorack and Modulars
Killing Toys, the division specialising in Eurorack systems and modular synthesizers of the leadingÂ Funky Junk Italy, has always providedÂ the best service to audio professionals. It will participateÂ with a selection of brandsÂ based on productive continuity, certified-design quality and after-sales service.
Odd AEonâ€™s visionary craftsmanship
Odd AEonÂ project can be described as visionary craftsmanship, attempting to become the alternative choice for instruments physical supports and music gears (modular synth cases, 19â€ rack cabinets, flight cases, pedalboards, studio desksâ€¦).
How?Â Finding odd shapes and discovering new aesthetics, with a continuous and powerful creative impulse: it might sound a bitÂ too much, yet that’s Odd AEon’s goal.
So yeah, it goes bigger and bigger. To continue…
Synth CafÃ© has recently reached and exceeded 18,000 users! Hurray!
These guys are havingÂ more and more support from the public, that’s great.
To continue… We are pleased to announce that, thanks to a meticulous work with institutions (formal e-mail, talk over a coffee, formal e-mail, talk over a coffee, formal e-mail…) Soundmit has been given the patronageÂ by:
– Metropolitan City of Turin
– University of Turin DAMS
– PolytechnicÂ University ofÂ Turin
– DENERG â€œGalileo Ferrarisâ€ Energy Department of PolytechnicÂ University ofÂ Turin
– Tor vergata University of Rome
– Electronic Engineering Department of Tor vergata University of Rome.
Each institution will have a dedicated spaceÂ within our program, discussions
and debates will be held involving the various institutional actors, to promote
highly specialised training courses in the field of electronic music and the world of music.
See you very soon and in the meantime…
On August 27th, these ladsÂ have set up another appointment that you don’t want to miss: at the TOdays festival with theÂ TOlab event: MOD02 / TOdays Festival! Check the event page to find out more.
