2015 D / Frankfurt: 15. – 18.4. Musikmesse

I was asked a year in advance already of even longer to realize a stand for all friends and small manufacturers of eurorack modulars and/or other innovative tools for electronic music on the Musikmesse again – in 2015 i did it for those who asked and it became a big one. On two stands opposite we was 42 brands in the end with more than 60 exhibitor badges on 99 Square meters packed with stuff.

SchneidersBuero, Musikmesse 2015

The lane in between the stands and the stands themselves was nearly always packed and .. I guess it was the most crowded place in the most crowded hall (?). Everybody was happy having been a part of it as I heard afterwards more often. Please find a few more impressions here, made by Paul Pape visiting the show on Friday and Saturday.

ALEX4 Distribution GmbH

After we agreed to have a common Midiclock over both stands we distributed a clock and an audio information every full hour  over a web of MidiThru, wireless midi converters and several Ploytec minisynths. The clock started at 10 bpm at 10 in the morning and ended with the last increase by another 10 bpm on 170 bpm at 17 oclock / 5pm .. every day.

These gentlemen from ploytec, kenton and AJH Synth became good neighbors by doing it, thank you.Unfortunately a lot of others did not even recognize it, but thats their loose.



And all the videos ..

.. or at least the most of them has been shot by our friends on Sonicstate, they made it an overview for us here!


And the plan was this ..Frankfurt_Stand_2015

2015 Musikmesse

On Musikmesse in Frankfurt – April, 15th til 18th, 2015 – we will exhibit more than 40 brands of eurorack modulars and other synthesizers in HALL 5.1 on stands C53 and C54. Every company has just a little part on the long tables and I am sure we will have a good time there together. Next to us right hand roland from Japan has taken place, left hand there is moog music with their news as always.
