Day two of Moogfest 2012 (10/27) in Asheville, NC was another full roster of events, musical performances and really cool analog synths. New Wave artist-turned-ringtone pioneer Thomas Dolby recieved the 2012 Moog Innovation Award after which he performed as well. Other performers from the night included techno legends Carl Craig and UK duo Orbital (who had the most infectiously excitable crowd), new talent Disclosure (who just played NYC and sent some of the Moogfest crowd into hysterics) and Magnetic Fields. There was also a presentation on the Moog Google Doodle and more.

Pics from Day 1 of Moogfest are here, with pics from Justice‘s pre-fest show here. More pictures from Day 2 are below.

Some facts I remember from the panel: (1) Since the Moog Google Doodle was release, more than 57 years of music have been recorded globally through the interface, more than 50 million songs recorded, (2) it took around 4 months from conception to release on the Google search home page (not 4 months of continuous work, but hundreds of hours were put into this), (3) the people at Moog were actually contacted shortly before launch, because the Google team still needed to keep the project secret before the release; they wanted the blessings from the Moog people but they also wanted to give Moog enough time to make sure their website wouldn’t crash when people around the world inevitably Google “Moog”, (4) the Google engineers mentioned that they optimized the doodle to the range of typical computer speakers around the world; they didn’t want the possibility of blowing out speakers; (5) the Google team noticed how Moog and Google doodle were geographically trending on the Twitters around the world as different timezones hit midnight (like Japan, which is 12 hours ahead and would have the Moog Google Doodle before the U.S.)
