The Alan R. Pearlman Foundation are holding an in-person and online event and fundraiser to celebrate 50 years of one of the most popular synthesizers of all time, the ARP Odyssey. Hosted by the Berklee College of Music's Electronic Production & Design Department at 10:00 EST on 5 November 2022, the day will feature live performances, panel discussions, special guests, and more.
The in-person performances will take place at the David Friend Recital Hall at Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA. Entrance is free for those able to attend in person, with donations encouraged for preferred seating. Tickets for the streamed event are available to purchase from Eventbrite, and playback will be available for the entire weekend for those wishing to join from time zones that make it impractical to watch the event live.
Confirmed artists, panelists, content creators and guests include:
Herbie Hancock, Lisa Bella Donna, Rupert Greenall (The Fixx), David Friend, Mark Vail, DJ Cherish the Luv, Danz (Synth History), Drew Schlesinger, Ian Staer, Jamie Billings, Mike Metlay, Alex Ball, David Frederick, Tom Piggot, Alison Cassidy, Bill T. Miller, the Berklee Synthesizer Ensemble, Greg Phillinganes, the Jennifer Hruska group, BØLT and many more.
All proceeds of the event will benefit the Alan R. Pearlman Foundation and their ARP’s For All programme.
