Presented in association with Sonophilia Lincoln's Festival of Sound, Electromatronic is a series of concerts showcasing the variety of live electronic music being produced today. Organised by synthesizer duo CSMA it features their huge, modern synth collection along with the best of local performers in various electronic genres, always with a strong emphasis on quality and live performance.
Our aim is to show that Electronics is not just the preserve of dance music or static classical pieces but can provide a full range of musical experience. We are also keen to keep a gender balance as there is also a vastly inaccurate myth that electronic music is a male occupation.
Tickets in advance are £4 each. The charge on the door will be £5.
Using a large collection of modern hardware synthesizers, CSMA blend classical structures, Berlin-school sequencer techniques and carefully controlled textures. Taking their influences from Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Stravinsky and many others they use a combination of analogue and digital synthesizers as well as custom-written software to take you on a unique musical journey of strange sounds and complex rhythms

Algorave is made from “sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive conditionals". These days just about all electronic music is made using software, but with artificial barriers between the people creating the software algorithms and the people making the music.

Simon Le Boggit will be performing a single electronic piece called DNA, which explores the way apparently meaningful patterns and structures may emerge from chaos and repetition. Various examples of Simon's sonic artwork may be found on his Quantum Soup Orchestra website.
