About:
Invited to be part of the 2016 International Conference on Live Interfaces (
http://www.liveinterfaces.org/) at the University of Sussex, this years Brighton Modular Meet takes place in the newly renovated Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts (formerly the Gardner Arts Centre). We will be taking over a number of rooms in this Grade 2 listed building designed by Sir Basil Spence.

 

In addition to a large open access space where you can set up your synth and mingle with others, this year we will have a room for manufacturers and shops, a space for talks and live performances, and a video synthesis room.

 

Are you bringing your synth?

If so aim to arrive by 10am, you should be able to drive up to the ACCA building to unload. We will be supplying trestle tables and power cables. Please make sure you bring everything else you will need: a modular synth & other bits, cables, speakers, headphones etc.

 

Refreshments:

I hope to have a supply of tea and coffee at the meet, but additionally, there is a cafe and decent sized Co-op supermarket in the center of campus (there's a few cash machines on campus too).
