"#modularonthespot Dark Side of the Tune plays the modular synthesizer live in the park.
Modular on the Spot began as an impromptu live modular synthesizer performance gathering organized by Bana Haffar and Eric (Rodent 516) Cheslak in Los Angeles, California. The idea is to bring people together to experience live modular in the context of the outdoors, away from clubs and studios. These events are entirely focused on modular synthesizers - no external gear such as laptops or drum machines are allowed.
This show has traveled to San Francisco, Atlanta, and Asheville, North Carolina for the recent Moogfest and is being presented in cooperation with Bradley Millington in Seattle at Gasworks Park on July 16th from 6-9PM.
Modular synthesizers let the artist mix and match function modules to create their own personal instrument. Hands on control and the ability to be re-routed by patch cables in whichever configuration the user chooses creates a personal sound. The results of the complex patches are often experimental by nature."
