CV FREQS is a series of events to allow the modular synth community to flourish, creating a platform for musicians and engineers to come together and network and to allow people to learn more about eachother's systems. The concept was founded by musician Eden Grey in 2013 in Portland, Oregon during her professional graduate internship with 4MS Company for her Masters' degree in Music Technology.
Eden Grey began the CV FREQS events out of an interest to learn more about these fascinating custom instruments. Eden continued organizing CV FREQS events in London for her PhD research from 2016-2019. In this time period, she organized 12 events at several different venues across London.
It was through a call for donations to fund CV FREQS XII, held in December 2019 in London, that Eden met Craig Clifford, an avid collector of Eurorack, an engineer and all-around synthesizer enthusiast. Craig and Eden built a friendship talking about music gear and Eurorack, and various ideas how to continue CV FREQS. Their first idea of starting a record label was brought to a halt because of the pandemic, but the most recent developments are to open a CV FREQS Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio where they can hold workshops and events.

CV FREQS COLUMBUS
August 14, 2021
12 PM - 7 PM
This will be the first edition of many CV FREQS event series to come in Columbus, hosted by Craig Clifford and Eden Grey. It is a modular synthesizer meet to bring together people who are using and interested in modular synthesizers. We are launching a brand new studio space in the Brewery District for modular synthesis research.
We invite people to bring their eurorack systems, headphones, a speaker or two and a power cord out to demonstrate them. We set them up on tables for the setup time, from 11 AM until the event opens to the public at noon. Then we all play them and talk about them at the same time throughout the day, so it can get loud and cacophonous as the event progresses!
We start at 12 noon and end at 7, breaking down time, with a few live performances starting around 5. Since this will be the first one in Columbus, folks excited about modular synths will see what the meet is like and participate in the format.
