Roland has announced the AIRA House Originators Series tour. Here's their press release:
The AIRA Crew hits the road this fall for a series of AIRA House events. These include a selection of special "originators" events featuring the AIRA Crew and a local originator of a style or movement in electronic music. Partnering with various local venues and training academies, musicians and music aficionados unite to listen and learn about both the history and current trends of electronic music production and performance.
The AIRA Crew and "originator" will open the floor to discussions about what drove the pioneering spirit and experimental attitudes of trailblazing artists and how legendary electronic musical instruments like the TR-808, TR-909, and TB-303 shaped techno and house and found their way into the hands of the artists that made a real difference. Roland's place in electronic music history will be investigated through the eyes and ears of the artists who started some of the most influential music scenes in the U.S. and participants will explore where it's all heading with the next evolution of Roland electronic instruments.
Attendees of the series will have a chance to get hands-on with Roland's very latest gear for electronic music right alongside expert AIRA product specialists and the area's music leaders. Series participants will also have the chance to win a Roland TB-3 Touch Bassline signed by the presenting originator in each stop along the AIRA House Originators Series tour.
