Second-Saturday Synthfest Series at Stage 33 Live

Two electronic music performance concerts will celebrate synthesizers, circuit-bending, and sound manipulation on the second Saturdays of the first two months of 2024 - Jan. 13 and Feb. 10 - at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge St.

Each session will open with a meet-and-greet at 6 p.m., where concert-goers can get a close look at the gear, talk with the performers, and settle in. Five 20-minute performances will begin at 7 p.m.

The players will be in the center of the room, with the audience in the round encouraged to roam throughout the show. "The performances are expected to range from cinematic and lush to computeresque and urgent," say organizers. "It may get loud."

Session 1 performers on Jan. 13 include three from New York City - Metamyther, cameron.wav, and makamqore - along with Thomas Nöla of Vermont and B.B. Dozer of New Hampshire.

Session 2 performers on Feb. 10 include Repairer of Reputations from Rhode Island, Acacia Bridge from New York, and three from Vermont: Thorny, Malcolm McShinsky, and Uke Meri.

There is a suggested $10 donation in advance through or at the door per event, but no one will be turned away for lack of money. All proceeds benefit the performers. Advance donations guarantee entry if the session sells out. Seating is limited. All performances will be recorded and filmed.
