What is Freq Boutique?
Freq Boutique is a monthly showcase hosted by WMD. It is catered around modular synthesizers and synthesists. You can think of it kind of like an open mic night for synth heads. The event is streamed live to the WMD YouTube channel.
When is Freq Boutique?
The show is streamed live every second Monday of the month with performances starting at 7 PM MDT.
How do I play?
Simply sign up once between shows using the form below. Performers are randomly chosen in a lottery one week before the event.
If you are selected you will be contacted by email and will need to confirm you can play the time allotted to you. If you are not able to play, let us know right away and we will put your name back in the lottery for next time.
If you are not selected you will remain signed up for future Freq Boutiques until you are chosen. If you don’t get picked you at least get a better chance of playing as time goes on. All of your signups are cleared once you are chosen to play.
Cool, I want to play!
Awesome, we highly recommend you watch past episodes of Freq Boutique so that you get an idea of how the show looks, feels, and sounds. If you would like to perform, please read the rules below and fill out the submission form.
- All performances must use a modular or semi-modular synthesizer of some sort in the performance.
- No computer-based “controllerism” performances. Hybrid setups are okay.
- Sets are a maxium of 20-minute sets with 5 minutes to explain the patch.
- All performance are live.
- Technical requirements: as this is an online edition of Freq Boutique, it is required that performers are prepared with a direct audio line and camera feed to live stream their performance to the world. We recommend that you use a wired internet connection for this as WIFI is not as reliable. You may try and use WIFI, but be advised that quality and consistency may suffer. ( We can’t guerentee stereo but we will try if you are capable to send a stero signal)
- After your performance, we will still conduct the Q&A portion of the event. This will require that you either have a microphone to speak into or that you switch your source to the built-in mic on your laptop for the interview. Please test your setups before the performance to make this as easy as possible.
