Portland Synth Meet is a gathering for audio synthesizer enthusiasts. It's a chance for makers and collectors to show off their gear, share notes and make sounds. Synths of all kinds will be represented including modular and desktop synths, drum machines, circuit bent instruments and algorithmic one-liners. Anything that can synthesize or manipulate sound is welcome. Bring your own speakers and power strips. Local synth makers will offer demos at the top of every hour. Then bands Golden Retriever and Acid Farm (which includes Jesse Mejia from dorkbot-pdx) will remind the synth community what it's really all about.
This event is free and open to all. Beer and snacks will be for sale. All donations and proceeds will benefit the Ethos Music Center, an organization promoting music-education for youth in underserved communities.
