Our Frequency Fridays series launched in the fall of 2010, and has been running continuously ever since with the generous support of the Greater Columbus Arts Council, the Ohio Arts Council, the Columbus Foundation, and, more recently, the National Endowment for the Arts and New Music USA. This season, shows will be held at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center and the Columbus Performing Arts Center. Our shows take place the first Friday of every month from October through June (except January), and feature a heady mix of local, regional, and “from afar” performers in various stages of their musical and artistic careers. To see the range of artists we have featured in our Frequency Fridays programming, please check out our series documentation in our gallery.
Frequency Fridays is by invitation only, and heavily curated by our staff, volunteers, and local experimental musicians and collaborators. However, we are always happy to book touring musicians and sound artists for stand-alone performances throughout the year, and it is not unheard of for us to invite performers to take part in Frequency Fridays who we have booked previously as part of a tour. If you have any questions, or if you are a touring artist and would like to perform in Columbus, please contact our executive director via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that our focus is *entirely* on experimentation (the widening and exploration of possibilities) and improvisation (real-time aesthetic risk-taking, flexibility, and sensitivity)! In other words, we are not interested in popular or mainstream art forms and will not book these kinds of projects.
