14 Nov. Marking 50 Years of Electronic Music at the American Academy in Rome. Afternoon and evening sessions include live performances, DJ sets, an exhibition and a round-table discussion.
The event commemorates the 50th anniversary of the syn-ket, one of the first portable electronic music synthesisers, invented and constructed by the Italian audio engineer Paolo Ketoff.
In 1964/1965 the academy and its syn-ket provided the catalyst for a series of exchanges between international musicians such as John Eaton, Larry Austin and Alvin Curran, whose experimentation had a wide-reaching effect on the global development of electronic music.
Guests must reserve in advance, see website.
