The events will feature Roland’s AIRA Crew and a local originator of a style or movement in electronic music. The ‘originators’ include producers Frankie Bones, Freddy Fresh, DJ Pierre (Phuture) and others.
The events are designed for musicians and music aficionados to be able to learn about both the history and technology of electronic music production and performance.
The events will look at how artists and key Roland electronic musical instruments (like the TR-808, TR-909, and TB-303) shaped techno and house music. Attendees will also have the chance to get hands-on with Roland’s latest gear and even win a Roland TB-3 Touch Bassline, signed by the ‘Originator’ artist at each event.
