For 25 days in March, Rough Trade NY is housing the world’s largest modern Moog installation as a mile-marker on the road to Moogfest, and Moog invites all artists in the area to stop by and utilize the space for experimentation and discovery.
The residency serves as a physical manifestation of the intersection of music, art and technology, and it is meant to be used as an artist’s resource. Although it is free to the public, this is no museum exhibit- visitors are encouraged to interact, engage and experiment with the analog electronics. All are welcome to craft sound as well as bring a recording device to sample the instruments.
Stephen Godfroy, Co-Owner of Rough Trade, says of the installation With our shared love of musical experimentation and innovation, Moog are perfect bedfellows for us. Being able to create and host world-class experiences like this is precisely what Rough Trade NYC is all about; is precisely why New York can safely claim to have the most exciting record store on the planet.
The installation includes a producers station, drone towers, 10 voice polyphonic analog synth, 6 voice Minimoog drum synth, and over 50 analog effects boxes.
