Back in 1979 I bought my first synth: a monophonic Korg MS-20 which I still own. The cause of it were a British post-punk band from Sheffield: Cabaret Voltaire, which I saw at the Effenaar venue in Eindhoven in the same year.

They are included in the BBC-4 documentary Synth Britannia, which focuses on the rise of synth pop in the post-punk era. Although the focus is on “”pop” bands like The Human League, OMD, Depeche Mode and individuals like Gary Numan, the influence of more “industrial” outfits like Cabaret Voltaire,  Throbbing Gristle and The Normal is also mentioned.

The BBC 4 documentary links the rise of synth pop to the bleak landscape, economics and politics of ’70 s Britain. So a very interesting video to check out if you are into electronic music (history).

From 8 until 15 November 2014 Eindhoven will once again be completely immersed in the light art festival GLOW.

The theme of the ninth edition is ‘City in Motion’. The work of around fifty artists in the form of light installations, sculptures, projections and performances provide the public with a surprising new angle on the city. GLOW is free to everyone and last year it attracted no fewer than 520,000 visitors.
