Since most modular synthesizers are constructed at the cottage industry level and distributed online, it is difficult for users to interact with these instruments. Control Voltage Faire will be the first opportunity on the East Coast for amateur enthusiasts, professionals and the general public to experience analog synthesizer modules produced by DIY manufacturers and crafters. Like a small-scale NAMM show with the independent spirit of the Maker Faire, the Control Voltage Fair will zone in on the origins and future of modular synthesis.
Presenters at the Control Voltage Faire include :
Control, 4ms, Harvestman, Knas (debuting their new “Polygamist” synth), Main Drag Modular, Make Noise, Malekko, MeMe Antenna and Pittsburgh Modular. And more to be announced!
The evening will feature Buchla 200e Recital, presenting three composers exploring this powerful instrument: Alessandro Cortini, Carlos Giffoni, and Mark Verbos. To end the event, a late show featuring Xeno & Oaklander and Loud Objects will perform on all-analog instruments. The concert will take place in Lower Manhattan’s @SEAPORT!, located at 210 Front Street.
