March 20th and 21st, 2018

Oscillations & Modulations is a two–day festival of synthesisers and electronic music, which took place 20th–21st March 2018 in various locations throughout the city of Derry.

The festival sought to celebrate and explore an expanding ecosystem of electronic music culture, joining the dots between the music makers and teachers, synthesiser designers and performers, music studios and music spaces that help to shape and inspire the musical landscape of the city and beyond.

  • Hands-on workshops on modular synthesiser systems
