An Opportunity to Explore New Devices
Showcasing the latest guitar pedals and synths, including a modular section, Sonic Circuits is designed to gather musicians, professionals, gear lovers and amateurs of all musical stripes under one roof. Continuing its long-running relationship with MUTEK, MOOG Audio is the official retail partner, offering a discount of 10% on almost all gear being shown by participating manufacturers.
Workshop, Performances and Product Presentations
Sonic Circuits will be even more than a showroom—offering a host of activities from artists, professionals and manufacturers, with workshops, talks, live performances on the garden, product presentations and more.
During the weekend, local manufacturers, as well as international brands, will occupy the two floors of Never Apart, and company representatives will be there to help attendees explore and answer any questions they may have. For pedal lovers, Harmony Guitars will be available to facilitate demonstrations and provide a guitar, but visitors are encouraged to bring their own instruments as well.
The Hosting Venue
Never Apart is located in the heart of the vibrant Mile-Ex neighborhood and is dedicated to igniting positive change through culture with regular gatherings, music, art exhibitions, discussions, and workshops. The venue also features a pool, open during Sonic Circuits— so don’t forget your swimsuit!
