|Description:||The top three synthesizer composers in Canada will fight it out for first-, second- and third-place at the Finals of the Roland Synthesizer Contest. The Finals will be a free night of exciting electronic music and visual effects. |
Each of the top three compositions will be played and accompanied by an original performance by VJ Electrabelle – a visual effects artist who creates custom imagery for live events. The audience will also be treated to performances by two of the country’s hottest electronic musicians: Solvent, a Toronto-based robot music composer, and DJ Bliss, one of Montreal’s most musically versatile DJs.
The contestants’ entries will be adjudicated by an expert panel composed of Amin Bhatia, winner of the Roland International Synthesizer Competition in 1981 and 1982; Jason Amm AKA Solvent, a Toronto-based electronic musician; Jeremy Greenspan, one half of the Hamilton-based hit duo Junior Boys; and Paul McCabe, vice-president of Roland Canada.
