Worldtronics Festival/ Richard Scott Live

Couple of electronic events to look out for if you're in or around Berlin during the next couple of weeks:

Tomorrow night (26.11) sees the opening of this year's Worldtronics festival at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

And Richard Scott will be improvising with his Buchla Lightning at the Coma on the 4th December.

No, that's not Richard in the title pic. It's Theremin player Dorit Chrysler who'll be taking part in '7 Women No Cry' along with seven other one-woman bands at the HKW on Wednesday night.

The Worldtronics Festival runs from the 26th to 30th November. You can find more info and the full line-up here. Info on Gudrun Gut's Monika Enterprise label and 4 Women No Cry compilation series is here.

But enough of the synth-babes, back to synth-hunk Richard Scott!

At his last gig in October his set-up included the Buchla, Wiimote and Rob Hordijk's Blippoo Box. I missed this post on Matrixsynth but was taken by it's sound when I met Richard playing his Blippoo at Schneidersbuero a couple of weeks ago. It looks and sounds great, so I hope it makes an appearance at the Coma in December!

Richard said he would be uploading some sounds soon, but in the meantime you can hear mono-poly's Blippoo Box noodles here and read more about Richard's Lightning and hear some of his compositions at his website.
