Thanks to Eli Neiburger for the heads up for this event -
The Ann Arbor District Library is launching a new circulating collection of electronic music tools, and they are brining "Dr. Bob's Sound School", a program of the Robert Moog Foundation, to AADL this Wednesday August 1, 2012. It's an introduction to the principles of electronic sound synthesis, a little history of Moog, and a chance to get your hands on some seriously cool and unusual music tools.
The instrument collection will feature musical gear that you can check out from the Library, from such noted manufacturers as Moog, Korg, Maywa Denki, Bleep Labs, Chamber of Sounds, Folktek, Critter & Guitari and more! Participants in the workshop will get a chance to get their hands on these instruments before they go into general circulation.
One event is intended for grades K-5 and their adults from 2-3:30 PM, and another for grades 6 – Adult from 7 – 8:30 PM. Details here:
