Our own Fat Roland joins panel at Manchester Electronic Music Symposium


Manchester’s Factory251 venue is set to host The Electronic Music Symposium next Tuesday (25 April) and among the panel members is our very own Fat Roland. The evening will focus on the world of electronic music and bring together established industry people and music makers alike, with topics ranging from key elements of great electronic music to how to make it in the industry.

Fat Roland, our esteemed columnist/asylum escapee will be there representing Electronic Sound, while other panellists include 808 State co-founder Graham Massey, Twisted Nerve and Finders Keepers co-founder Andy Votel and DJ and Producer Tom Francis.

The Symposium is a collaboration between the Manchester MIDI school, the University of Central Lancashire and former Operations Director for Ministry Of Sound Tony Rigg.

“For those who haven’t been to one of our events before, imagine a cross between Parkinson and Question Time but for people who are really into music,” says Rigg. “Really informative but great fun.”

Computer music wizards SCAN Pro Audio will also be present at the event, bringing with them their latest toys for people to try out. Top notch Audeze headphones will also be available to any budding music makers to listen to their latest mixes on.

The Electronic Music Symposium takes place on Tuesday 25 April at 7pm. Tickets are available on the door and on www.skiddle.com.
