On Tuesday’s CV Fest workshop we can get a better insight on the delicacies of the first Hungary-based eurorack module, the Kasleder Acid Fuzz, and the evening ends with a no-compromise modular techno live act. Apart from members of the Analogue Zone team, Csaba Füle, a Hungarian musician and instrument-builder is also attending the workshop with is DIY electronic instruments, including a clone of a 909 drum machine and a lot of custom fuzz effects. There will be many DIY fuzz effects to test the new MFB desktop drum machines either. As it should be in any synth workshop, everything will be observed by an oscilloscope.
This workshop can be regarded as a warmup for the bigger event on the 15th of May which will last a whole day, and will be attended by local and international distributors, as well as synth manufacturers.
To name a few: Analogue Zone, Roland, Roland AIRA, Tiptop Audio, Bastl Instruments, Doepfer Musikelektronik, and Hungarian studio equipment distributors Audmax and Pákó have been already confirmed, others are also to be announced.
CV Fest will be a great chance to get an insight of the Hungarian electronic music and festival scene, since many of the representative organisers and producers will be taking part in panel discussions and will be happy to answer the visitors’ questions. CV Fest will also be supported by an original modular techno live act from Berlin next to the Hungarian live acts.
The event starts in the afternoon with raffle games in which valuable prizes offered by the exhibitors can be won by the visitors. The further programmes include contemporary music performances by Bálint Baráth and Ákos Nagy, but David Ahlund of Roland will also be showing the best uses of AIRA products in a live music context. The daytime events also include a vocoder karaoke which visitors can try out for fun. The evening kicks in with concentrated techno live acts from local Hungarian artists (Banyek, Arrythmia), and the Berlin-based ZV_K duo is also coming with their full Tiptop Audio modular arsenal (Konstantin, the member of the project is also doing an exlcusive workshop during the day!)
The list of exhibitors and and participants’ names are expanding day after they, so it would be no surprise if further treats would be ready till the 15th of May!
