Inside The Swiss Museum Of Electronic Music Instruments (SMEM)
In is latest video, Ugandan synthesist Bamanya Brian (Afrorack) shares a look in side the Swiss Museum For Electronic Music Instruments (SMEM).
“I had the privilege of spending time at the Swiss Museum of Electronic Museum,” notes Brian, “and I wanted to show you a little bit of what is there.”
SMEM aims to establish itself as the “world’s first platform for electronic music instruments”. The foundation for this project is the incredible collection of Klemens Niklaus Trenkle, who for the last 35 years has collected an amazing collection of synthesizers, organs, keyboards, effects and studio gear.
The collection features just about every synth and electronic instrument you can imagine, with classic instruments stacked floor to ceiling.
SMEM is located in the innovation center of the “BlueFactory” in Fribourg (Switzerland). They plan to gradually build up their different activities on an international level, while increasing its current collection.
