Following the sell-out success of last year’s event with Kraftwerk’s prodigal son Wolfgang Flur at the headlining helm, comes Seventh Wave the sequel. This year’s line-up of music and keynote speakers spans 4 days and 3 venues and offers a similarly stellar cast to render electronica fans earnestly ecstatic. Japan and Porcupine Tree’s Richard Barbieri, Heaven 17’s Martyn Ware, Gary Numan collaborator and the writer behind Visage’s Fade to Grey Chris Payne and Blitz Club DJ Rusty Egan and current Manc Kraut Rock darlings Gnod to name but a few. Creatively curated, this cerebral celebration of all things artistically electronica includes exceptional live music along with conference, discussion, a Test Dept electronic remix set with AV and even a masterclass/synth workshop/Q&A with keyboard aficionado Richard Barbieri. The event has a country-wide draw and tickets are limited/selling fast. An ideal scene setter for Kraftwerk’s much anticipated Symphony Hall show in June, we suggest you get plugged in.
Released on the 40th anniversary of the Japan’s first recording, the new studio album from the ex-Japan and Porcupine Tree keyboards maestro, ‘Planets + Persona’ is Richard Barbieri’s most sonically expansive work to date with an array of guest performers OUT NOW, order here: http://found.ee/RB_PLANETS_PERSONA As an ex-founder of the new-wave pioneers Japan, Barbieri was a leader in creating the ground-breaking synthesiser sound that defined the band and influenced the likes of The Human League, Duran Duran, Gary Numan, Talk Talk and a whole raft of artists to follow.
Thu 23 Mar – Sun 26 Mar at various venues. For more information see www.facebook.com Tickets: www.theticketsellers.co.uk
