Modular On The Spot.

Modular On The Spot is an outdoor modular synthesizer picnic founded in Los Angeles by Eric ‘Rodent’ Cheslak and Bana Haffar. The idea came about on a camping trip to Arizona in 2014 where the two set up a generator, speakers, and a modular synthesizer at an off grid location in the middle of the desert. The format was then brought to the Los Angeles river where it has resided, largely uninterrupted, for almost 3 years. The event has resonated with modular aficionados and has since spread, through local initiative, to over 20 cities across the U.S. and abroad. The informal picnic setting combined with a focus on modular synthesizers only, is intended to cultivate the exchange of ideas with those who share a common interest in the format, as well as showcase the breadth of the instrument.
