Frequency Fridays is a performance series featuring sound artists, experimental and electronic musicians, and instrument inventors.

About the Project

Frequency Fridays is the Fuse Factory's annual performance series featuring sound artists and sound poets, experimental electronic musicians, instrument makers, and avant-garde composers. For the past five years, we have brought emerging and established musicians and artists from around the US and Europe to expose central Ohio audiences to sound's many creative dimensions in the form of pioneering works. For documentation of Frequency Fridays performances from 2010-2015, please visit our website: thefusefactory.org.

Our goal is to raise $5000 to match a project grant awarded to us by the Greater Columbus Arts Council (thanks, guys!). In addition to helping us support the local experimental electronic musicians sharing the stage with the out-of-towners, all funds raised will make it possible for us to pay the performance and travel fees of the following artists from around Ohio and the US:

  • Circuit des Yeux (Chicago)
  • Ryan Kuehn (Ohio)
  • Tim Thornton (Ohio)

  • Chris Bilecki + Paul Markus (Ohio)
  • Aaron Michael Butler (Ohio)

Because of your generosity, Frequency Fridays will continue to grow, thrive, and shape Central Ohio's cultural landscape - thank you!
