Introducing The Playroom: an interactive synthesizer space

Introducing The Playroom: an interactive synthesizer space

Imagine being able to play, record, and discover the beautiful history of vintage and contemporary synthesizers in one special space. Introducing The Playroom will be a beautiful open space created for people to take advantage of the huge SMEM (Swiss Museum & Center for Electronic Music Instruments) collection located in Fribourg, Switzerland. They will also host lectures, workshops, classes, and more. And for a hands-on experience, The Playroom can be rented for private recordings, events, and parties. Support them now on Kickstarter We want to create The Playroom, a place dedicated to learning about, playing with, and sharing the incredible history of electronic music instruments! SMEM invited artists like Yello, Timber Timbre, Legowelt, Alienata, Franz Treichler from the Young Gods, and more to come visit their electronic instrument collection, and their reaction was unanimous: the instruments had to be usable. As such, The Playroom will not only be a unique space where visitors can spend a few hours recording their own music and synth experiments, but also a venue for talks, music workshops, and more. The Playroom will be a unique establishment featuring electronic synths, their history, uses, and more. The space will be made specially for visitors to play with, learn about, and record instruments and effects—all from SMEM’s expansive collection.

Drawings made on Starbuck's Sleeve

Loris Grillet is a graphic and web designer from Geneva, Switzerland. Last year he was in Japan learning japonese and used to stopped by Starbucks before going to classes and as he loves to draw he decided to start doing some drawings on Starbucks cup sleeves. We really liked that idea and that's why we are sharing some of the drawings here with you I had 10 weeks japanese classes in Fukuoka on Kyushu island, Japan. The morning, I often stopped by the Starbucks. At first, I tried to re-use my sleeves by bringing it back the next morning and some day I started to keep them and ask for a new one every day to draw on it. On my last day, I offered my small collection to the Starbucks' employees I spoke with every day. For more information about Loris, visit his Web site at http://www.loriskumo.com/
