Electro-Music 2008
« on: August 01, 2008, 07:48:24 AM »

Hello:
The Electro-Muisic 2008 festival is being held in Kingsport, TN on Aug. 14-16. The admission price is reasonable ($50.00/3 days) and they'll be having concerts, workshops, and some open jam sessions. I'll be there with Zennie.
Here's the link:

I went and it was amazing!

There were around 50-100 eletronic musicians there. Some had vintage synthesizers. There were a LOT of laptops. A fair number of people made their own instruments. Any attendee could set up in the jam room and play all day. Needless to say that's where I spent most of my time.

My ZX (Zennie) fit right into the whole scene (mine was the only one there). A few folks had seen one before...about half had heard of one...and a couple of people might end up getting one. A lot of people asked if they could play it (I obliged of course). I heard a lot of compliments about the quality of the craftsmanship and I told everyone who asked where they could get one. I felt like a real Zendrum ambassador.

I learned that this gathering started in Philadelphia, PA a few years ago. This is the first time the event has been held outside of Philadelphia. If you're into experimental eletronic music, Electro-Music (http://electro-music.com/) is the place to go. They're really nice folks.

kudos for representing with the zendrum in such an event that brought it so much attention. thats the exposure zendrum needs to generate a busy buzz of real world advertising. much better than a picture and a paragraph to reveal its capabilities to potential customers.
good job
