Synth Saturday September 9 2017 noon-6:00

Ocean State Maker Mill is hosting our September synthesizer meetup from noon until 6:00 PM on Saturday September 9 at our newly-expanded makerspace in Pawtucket, RI. Whether you’re an experienced electronic musician, or are just curious about what this whole ‘modular synthesis/Eurorack’ thing is about, this is the perfect chance to gather with fellow New England synth nerds. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own synths, modules and racks. Headphones are encouraged, but we’ll also have a PA system available for a wider audio experience.

Ocean State Maker Mill is a membership-run organization with the mission of helping encourage the usage of arts, engineering, and science to help make ideas become reality. We provide a workshop for our members to build their dreams, and an educational space for the greater New England community to learn new skills. We are located at 80 Fountain Street in Pawtucket, RI.
