Papz is doing a talk and Synthi AKS performance in Sydney

Post by Cobramatic » Thu May 30, 2019 9:15 pm

Hi All, I hope it is ok to post this here for all Aussie Wigglers who might be able to get to Sydney tomorrow:

New Sound Waves Presents -
Special guest Constantin Papageorgiadis (Portabellabz, aka Papz here on Muffs) is joining us.

He will give a talk about his work, supported by several instruments and will improvise a piece on a modified Synthi AKS.

This will be a real treat as we don't see many Synthi's down this way!
Jono (jondent on Muffs) will also be there and might bring his too.

I believe we will be making a video of the event so I'll be back to post pics and video later.

See you there at 107 Projects (107 Redfern st, Redfern, NSW) from 5.30pm onwards on Saturday 1st June.

You folks are so very fortunate to have this opportunity. I would love to see and hear Papz do his thing on that Synthi. That guy is a hero! :hail:

Was a great night - Papz is very entertaining in real life! :party:

He discussed his long history with the Synthi and also his Buchla Easel breakout boxes (and additions) and followed up with a great performance on the Synthi.

We also had a talk and demo by our own Justin of Metro Modular who has developed some fantastic new Buchla format modules (more to come on those but you can see them on the table behind him and also get a peek on one of DivKids interviews from Superbooth Berlin last month).

There was a professional video made so I'll follow that up and post a link to it in due course.
In the meantime a couple of photos from the night.

Thanks guys, was a nice event and so great to catch up with Aussie Synthi freaks :guinness:
Can’t wait for my next travel to Australia, I love it !
Now in Hong Kong waiting for the flight back to Brussels.

A small patch at aread’s place in Sydney just before going to the airport this morning. Recorded quickly with a phone using the Synthi internal speakers sorry for the quality but the patch is cool.

Has an 'Akira' vibe
Any mods on that synthi?

No mod on the Synthi, it was just recapped.

Hope you like English spoken with a Belgian (Brussels) accent, mixed with a slight touch of Aussie. :lol: :party:

I sometimes feel I can understand Europeans speaking English better than American speaking English.

Thanks

Improvising with 2 Synthis that are not mines and behave differently, plugged in a mixer that I never used before, was a fun and interesting experience, in the beginning, I couldn't get the echo working. :doh: :lol:

And here is the Talk video:

Someone on our team even went to the trouble of subtitling it - so you can watch at work :hihi: (not a problem to understand Papz accent)
