The response of a random and modular network to the simultaneous presence of two frequencies is considered. The competition for controlling the dynamics of the network results in different behaviors, such as frequency changes or permanent synchronization frustration, which can be directly related to the network structure. From these observations, we propose a new method for detecting overlapping communities in structured networks.
