Moogfest taking 2013 off, returning in spring of 2014
Moogfest, which for the last few years has happened in October in Asheville, NC, is taking 2013 off but will return in 2014 with a new springtime date: April 25-27 and will remain in Asheville, which is also the home of Moog Music Inc. The switch also marks new partners in the festival: Paxahau, who produce Detroit's Movement Electronic Music Festival, as well as Detroit Jazzfest. Says Moog's Emily Parker:
Moogfest is not just about Moog or music, it's about celebrating the creative, forward-thinking spirit of both Bob and the city of Asheville. We'll shine a light on inventors, new media artists, circuit benders, programmers, and people with ideas that could change the way we experience music, art and performance."
Moog Music Inc. is also home of the Moog Sound Lab who host live performance sessions where bands reinterpret their work with an arsenal of Moog synths and instruments at their disposal. The most recent of which is Zola Jesus and you can watch her Moog Sound Lab performance below.
