Moogfest 2012 is proud to announce some new additions to this year’s line-up, featuring rap titan Nas, one of the genre’s most influential MCs and who will be performing with a full, Moog-ed out, nine-piece band. In addition Moogfest welcomes back Tim Hecker and Daniel Lopatin, who both performed solo last year, but will be teaming up as a duo this year. Also joining the lineup are Asheville’s own garage proggers Ahleuchatistas and New York duo Buke & Gase, who, in true Moog fashion, build their own instruments, speakers and pedals.
One of the most exciting and apropos additions to the lineup is Morton Subotnick. Like Bob Moog, Subotnick is a true innovator of electronic music and his Silver Apples of the Moon (1967) is one of the most influential pieces of electronic music and has inspired a generation of composers, performers, and music theorists. Subotnick will present From Silver Apples to a Sky of Cloudless Sulfur, a performance that will include the aforementioned legendary piece and will be accompanied by video created by Berlin-based media artist Lillevan.
The third annual Moogfest, the festival of electronic and visionary music that celebrates the innovative spirit of Bob Moog, is taking place Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 in beautiful Asheville, NC, the city Bob Moog called home.
