We've been seeing a stronger interest in electronic music lately (thanks to bands like Debra, Monster and Narkalark), and the Lawrence Public Library has been helping musicians with that interest.
The library's SOUND+VISION studio, more famously known as the free and accessible recording studio for the Lawrence community, has been hosting electronic music meetups since August. This weekend, they'll be holding their third one of the year.
Anyone who attends will get a firsthand lesson in electronic music gear, sound design and patch theory. Organizer Ed Rose, who spent years as the recording engineer at Black Lodge Studios, says attendees get to learn about modular synths and different modules, as well as learn some new techniques. Rose recommends attending the meetup to "play with cool, vintage synths and meet other folks interested in making electronic music."
The event starts at 1:30 p.m. and runs through 4:30 p.m. Saturday. The meetup even ends with a couple of performances from ADAMON and NARKALARK, with a chance to ask the performers questions after their set.
