The music of Tegan & Sera isn’t overtly electronic, but this live performance from the Moog Sound Lab showcases how they make use of the Moog Guitar, Etherwave theremin and Taurus 3 bass synthesizer.
Technical details below.
Tegan and Sara re-envision their single “Living Room” from their album entitled “If It Was You,” filling it with Moog Guitars and the ultra low end of the Taurus 3 Bass Pedals. Sara uses the Full Sustain mode on the Paul Vo Collector Edition Moog Guitar to create swooshing string pads to accompany Tegan’s upbeat acoustic guitar.
Ted Gowans uses the E1 Moog Guitar in a couple of ways: He’s using Mute mode during parts of the versus that give a real staccato feel, then switches over to Controlled Sustain where energy is given to just 1 or 2 strings at a time.
Shaun Hubert makes use of his hands and feet with the Taurus 3 Bass Pedals, bringing a massive low end growl to the song. There’s also an Etherwave Plus Theremin being used to sweep the Taurus 3’s filter via the CV output on the theremin.
