Digital Accordion Demo: The World’s Most Advanced Synthesizer

What can you do with a “computer shaped like an accordion?” Join Dr. Michael Bridge for an explanation and demonstration of the world’s most advanced synthesizer (yes, it’s an accordion!). Michael will show the digital accordion’s power in how he programs sounds, creates arrangements, and prepares for concerts. All sounds played 100% live on digital accordion, including percussion, choirs, accordions, organs, and imaginary instruments.

This workshop is free of charge!
