Moogfest 2019 initial lineup: William Basinski, Tim Hecker, GAS, US Girls, more
Moogfest 2019 happens April 25-28 in Durham, NC, and this year the festival is celebrating its 15th anniversary. The initial lineup includes William Basinski, Tim Hecker & The Konoyo Ensemble, GAS, U.S. Girls, A Place to Bury Strangers, Kimbra, Martin Gore, Matthew Dear, Suzi Analogue, The Field, Ela Minus, and more. Here are some more details on some of the specific appearances:
Moogfest again explores the boundaries between artist and audience through an interactive daytime program of workshops, masterclasses, and two-way conversations. This year features a creative exchange with Martin Gore of Depeche Mode.
As a platform for sonic experimentation, Moogfest invites artists to express themselves in new formats and debut new works. This year will see the return of the staple longform Durational Performances. Noise veterans A Place to Bury Strangers and IDM artist, sound designer and coder Richard Devine will each present four-hour performances. Iconoclastic ambient and musique concrète composer William Basinski, who has sampled the sounds of black holes colliding, will lead this year’s Sleep Concert.
