You Got Your Electrons in My Phonons

Saturday night at Ceremony Hall, the New Music Co-op presents Electrons & Phonons: New Music for Instruments and Electronic Sound, which is pretty much what it sounds like. Eight local musicians, including Kirk Laktas of My Education, Doug Ferguson, and Travis Weller, among others, demo found objects and hand-built contraptions as instruments.

Local experimental vet Rick Reed is "the proud owner of a vintage synthesizer called a Synthi AKS. It was made by an English company called EMS sometime around 1971 or so. They only made about 800 of them. It's such an unusual instrument that I thought I might talk a little about both the instrument and the company that made it."

Reed recommends going here to see why this is remarkable. Grab your turtleneck and blazer and be there. 8pm, $10.
