The Electronic Production and Design Department at Berklee is presenting the Conference, which has the theme of “Pioneers, Players, Thinkers, Purveyors”. Sessions will examine the development and direction of electronic instruments, from early commercial synthesizers in the 1970s to the present.
The two-day conference will consist of panel discussions, presentations, technology demos, and performances that explore how electronic instruments are developed and used. A product expo will run concurrently with the conference proceedings.
The conference will feature keynote performers Jordan Rudess, keyboardist of prog rock band Dream Theater; electronic music pioneer Suzanne Ciani; and electronic musician and entrepreneur Richard Devine. Keynote speakers for the conference will be David Friend, cofounder of ARP Instruments; Marcus Ryle, president of Line 6; and Daniel Haver, CEO of Native Instruments.
