Our Frequency Fridays monthly performance series is in its third year! We continue to feature sound artists, electronic musicians, circuit benders, and instrument makers who present improvised and aleatoric experimental music that is challenging, uncompromising, and exploratory. Thanks to a grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council, we have been able to host a cadre of amazing and talented artist-musicians from Columbus and other parts of Ohio, as well as around the midwest and mid-atlantic states. To see our entire season lineup, please visit our Frequency Fridays 2012-2013 season announcement.
So...why this campaign?
For our third year, we want to spread our wings a bit more and bring to the central Ohio experimental music community artists from the east, west, and southern coasts of the U.S., as well as abroad, many of whom have never performed in Columbus before: Author & Punisher, Yaktronix, Duet for Theramin and Lap Steel, Roth Mobot, PAS, Controlled Bleeding, Phillipe Petit, XAMBUCA, and Truus de Groot.
Quite simply, the money we raise will be used for these artists' travel expenses and performance fees. Our goal is $4000, which will allow us to bring in these far-reaches-of-the-U.S. artists to Columbus. And that would be awesome! No worries - our shows will be just as affordable as they ever were.
What will you get if you donate to our campaign? In addition to our everlasting love, you can also receive: a personalized shout-out on facebook; a t-shirt with our new-and-improved Fuse Factory logo; free admission to a Fuse Factory workshop; and a "best of" compilation from artists who have performed in one (or more) of our three seasons. In addition, a number of our performers have generously offered CDs, LPs, DVDs, and non-released tracks as rewards.One of our performers has even offered a super-sweet Exoteque label goodie bag, complete with handmade cassettes, CDs, and more!
And even if you can't donate, it's ok - we still love you :) If you want to help us spread the word about this campaign, that makes us very happy happy happy. Thank you very much for supporting our experimental music community!
Risks and challenges
When putting together a music series, there is always the chance that one or more of your artists will have to cancel. When this happens, the challenge is to find a comparable replacement. Fortunately, we have a good-sized network of artists who are more than willing to step in and promoters who are more than willing to make suggestions; as a result, finding good replacements has never been a problem for us.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
