Moog Sound Lab is a performance series where artists are filmed performing in the Moog Music factory in Asheville, North Carolina. Moog Sound Lab is all about organic experimentation and is a unique opportunity for artists to explore analog sound-scaping, synthesis and effects.
The Dandy Warhols (Season 1)
Kicking off the debut season of Moog Sound Lab are the Dandy Warhols experimenting with all manner of Moog gear. Watch as they use a soundscape of analog synthesis to reimagine the song "Green," from their seminal second album "Come Down" released in 1997.

HOW DID THE DANDY WARHOLS GET THAT SOUND?
Courtney Taylor-Taylor plays the Moog Guitar-Guitar, utilizing the Full Sustain mode of the guitar (which allows players to hold chords infinitely) and uses the MF-104Z Analog Delay, MF-103 12-Stage Phaser and MF-102 Ring Modulator to create a swirling pad of melodic guitar chords.
Peter Holmstrom also plays the Moog Guitar in Full Sustain mode. The rythymic pattern you hear comes from the chords of Peter's Moog Guitar going through the eight resonant filters in the MF-105M MIDI MuRF. The MF-104Z Analog Delay gives added depth and dimension to the sound.
Zia McCabe fills the room with the Taurus 3 bass pedals while using the Etherwave Plus Theremin to sweep the cutoff of the Taurus 3's filter. Control voltage never felt so good!
Brett Deboer plays the melody on the Little Phatty Stage II and lays the classic Moog sound on a bed of modulated chords played by Taylor-Taylor and Holmstrom.
