Cannon’s Walk, South Street Seaport

Abby Echiverri, in association with River-to-River Festival and Harvestworks, announces Control Voltage Fair 2013, a fair and concert for the modular synthesizer.

Part exposition, part block party, Control Voltage is New York City’s annual fair dedicated to celebrating the modular synthesizer. Synth makers and distributors share their creations by day, inviting audiences to see, hear, touch, and talk about the modular synth. Musicians perform at night celebrating technology, invention, community, creativity.

Introduced in the 1960s, the modular synth has recently experienced a rebirth due to its affordability and sonic flexibility, which makes it a revolutionary tool for creativity. Control Voltage is an open forum inviting person-to-person interaction between maker, musician, and attendee – novices and enthusiasts. Interact with artists and tinkerers, share ideas, and explore the ins and outs of this limitless instrument!

The fair will take place on July 6th, 2013 at Cannon’s Walk, and will feature the interactive fair followed by a concert. Kickoff and wrap-up concerts will take place on July 5th and July 8th. Workshops involving building voltage-controlled instruments will take place throughout the weekend. Details for these surrounding events will be announced soon.
