Australian Control voltage
AU-CV is a monthly remote meetup focusing on electronic music and creative technologies. We had our first meeting in March 2021, and have subsequently continued the meetings on a monthly basis. The sessions usually run between 2 to 3 hours, and the agenda goes something like this:
- Product Demonstration
- Chat about the demonstration
- Performance by an AU-CV member
- Discussion around the performance
- General chat
Performances are recorded and published to YouTube. General chat is not recorded.
The AU-CV mission is to erase the walls between electronic music studios, and create an inclusive and respectful environment where artists and music can breathe.
See the YouTube channel to view individual performances.

The inspiration for this meetup was my own attendance of the NM-CV (New Mexico Control Voltage) sessions. Yes, I stole the name format. After participating in that wonderful group I figured that with all the knowledge and talent in Australia we should try something similar. The group spun out of the Aussie Wigglers Facebook Group and I am very grateful to Marty for creating and maintaining that hugely helpful and friendly environment.
We use Zoom to meet up. If you are an Australian (or near by) electronic musician who uses Eurorack and related technologies to make music you might consider attending as a:
Guest - Sit back and listen or join the conversation. All you need is the Zoom app on your PC, Mac or Smartphone and you are good to go.
Product demonstrator - You have a module in your rig that you want to tell everyone about, or are a product designer with something to share.
Performer - Play a piece of music for the group. Times range between 10 and 20 minutes per performance. After the performance we will talk about your process and approach to music. Performances are recorded and loaded to the AU-CV YouTube channel.
