For 25 days in March, Rough Trade NYC 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.
All instruments in the installation were hand built in Asheville, NC at the Moog factory. Throughout the installation, Moog employees will be on hand at Rough Trade NYC to assist artist’s with the gear.
The installation includes a producers station, drone towers, 10 voice polyphonic analog synth, 6 voice Minimoog drum synth, and over 50 analog effects boxes.
Future sound experiments will take place throughout the duration of the installation, including appearances by Delicate Steve on March 25th presented by Luaka Bop; Dorit Chrysler and Rob Schwimmer on March 28th presented by The New York Theremin Society; Telecult Powers on March 29th presented by Ad Hoc; Gavin Russom on March 29th; and Anna Barie of These Are Powers on a date TBA.
Rough Trade NYC opened on November 25th 2013, becoming the newest and largest Rough Trade (www.roughtrade.com) store. Formerly a Williamsburg warehouse space, Rough Trade NYC is a 15k sqft music celebration, cleverly reusing old shipping containers to create the various interior spaces. Featuring an exhibition room, cafe, #TheGuardianGreenRoom, Main Drag music, ping-pong tables, and live performance room with bar, the store is quite unlike any other, providing music lovers a place to hang out, as much as a place to discover and purchase the very best new music.
