A last look at the factory at 2004 E Riverside Drive. Friday May 27 is the last day that production operated out of this location, and also the day they moved all of their stations to the new downtown Moog Factory at 160 Broadway, Asheville, NC.
Welcome to the first season of Moog Sound Lab-- Moog's new live performance series where artists re-imagine the songs in their catalog using analog synthesis and effects. Moog Sound Lab is all about organic experimentation and soundscaping.
Tomorrow would have been Bob Moog's 77th birthday and we've got the perfect present for him-- a new home for the company he founded in the heart of his beloved Asheville.
Maceo Meets Moogerfoogers
Beginning with the natural sound of Maceo’s Fresh N’ Funky Alto Sax, we quickly hurdle into another dimension by adding the MF-101 Low Pass Filter to the mix. Crankin’ on the Cutoff knob of the MF-101 Low Pass Filter draws out an analog “Wah” that allows for additional sonic articulations – say, “Wah-wah What?!?” It is recommended to keep the Resonance & Mix on the high side to bring out the most color when using this charismatic extension of your horn’s voice.
It's been a big week for theremin exposure on national TV. If Millhouse playing a theremin wasn't enough, last night Ke$ha demonstrated how she plays her Moog Etherwave Plus theremin on the Conan O'Brien show.
UPDATE: This TRIVIA question is closed! Moog has the fastest, smartest, wittiest customers in the world. We'll announce the 50 winners tomorrow. Thanks to all that played.
Every now and again, we'll do a little thing we call Moog Trivia. We'll ask you a question of varying degree of difficulty and if you get it right and get your answer in faster than the rest, we'll send you a Moog Pocket Protector.
So let's kick this off with an easy one...
The Moog Music sign went up on the new factory last week for all of downtown Asheville to see. It's inspired by the Moog logo cutout, backed with copper, on the rear panel of the Minimoog Voyager XL. The sign will light up the AVL night like a Solar backlit Minimoog Voyager Select Series. Ooooh fancy!
