Synthesizer Museum SMEM turns 5!

SMEM, Fribourg Von Dominik André am

With its huge collection of synthesizers, organs, keyboards, effects and studio equipment, SMEM is the world's first museum to exhibit this type of instrument. Not only that. In the museum rooms in Fribourg, you can also play with them. Now the SMEM, which stands for Swiss Museum of Electronic Musical Instruments, turns five and celebrates that with a three-day event. Many Swiss synthesiser virtuosos such as Noémi Büchi, Angelo Repetto, Weith or Varuna will play. On 3 September, the festival will also present internationally renowned artists such as Azu Tiwaline from Tunis, Flore from Lyon, Delay Grounds from Bristol and Stenny from Munich. The entire programme, which also includes workshops and lectures, can be found on the SMEM website.
