FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Roland Announces “Thomas Dolby Live in Roland Cloud”

 
Historic concert to be streamed live July 26  
 Roland is pleased to announce “Thomas Dolby Live in Roland Cloud,” a historic first-ever concert streamed live in Roland Cloud. Free and open to all, the performance by electronic music icon and Roland Lifetime Achievement Award winner Thomas Dolby will take place on Thursday, July 26, at 4:00 P.M. PDT, in Roland Cloud. 
During the 1980s, electronic music innovator Thomas Dolby became renowned for his technical prowess and a new sound that blended his love for technology and passion for music—a sound that launched his career and helped him rise to international fame during the heyday of MTV. Dolby can also lay claim to being a music technology and software maven, a published author and filmmaker, and a Professor of the Arts at Johns Hopkins University. 
Featuring just a few keyboards, a drum pad, and a MacBook® running synthesizers from Roland Cloud, Dolby’s rig for this live event is simple, but the output will be projected onscreen during the performance to give the audience a unique “under the hood” perspective.  
As part of an enhanced experience, all online audience members will have the opportunity to try the same synthesizers and sounds used by Thomas Dolby in concert by signing up for a 30-day Free Trial to Roland Cloud. This performance is also part of a rare summer tour for Dolby, which starts with a sold-out Hollywood, CA show on July 25 and wraps up in Baltimore, MD, on August 8.  
To pre-register for “Thomas Dolby Live in Roland Cloud,” please RSVP to the event here on Roland’s Facebook page.

All are Premium Epson papers and of the highest quality. Having us do the prints is mandatory, as well as the standardized size (which allows for the successful overall design of the exhibit.
