At Winter NAMM 2010
Dianna Dilworth, Amin Bhatia and Michelle Moog-Koussa invite you to:
An evening celebrating vintage keyboards through documentary film
January 15th from 6-8pm
Avila Room at the Anaheim Hilton
The Making of Bolero Electronica
Neo-symphonic synthesist Amin Bhatia (Virtuality, Interstellar Suite) and Michelle Moog-Koussa, Executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation host a question and answer session followed by a screening of a short documentary on the making of Bhatia's innovative realization of Bolero Electronica, for which he used over 70 synthesizers covering 75 years of evolution in synthesis in music.
Mellodrama: The Mellotron Movie
Following Bhatia, Dianna Dilworth and Markus Resch of the Mellotron Archive will screen Mellodrama: The Mellotron Movie which explores the rising and falling fortunes of the Mellotron – the first musical keyboard to “sample” the sounds of other instruments – from its birth in a California garage in the 1950s, through its dominance on concert stages in the 1970s, through its almost religious cult of followers in the 2000s.
Please come and join us for this very special evening ~
