Moog Music has announced a new partnership with Paxahau, producer of Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival, to co-produce Moogfest 2014, scheduled for April 25 – 27, 2014 in Asheville, North Carolina.
“We set out to find a new partner with a real understanding of the dynamic history of electronic music, and that has a deep appreciation for the impact Bob Moog’s inventions have had on musical expression and creation,” explains Moog Music President Mike Adams. “After working with them for three years on their festival in Detroit, we knew Paxahau was the right choice to help us take Moogfest 2014 in the direction we envision.”
“Moogfest is not just about Moog or music, it’s about celebrating the creative, forward-thinking spirit of both Bob and the city of Asheville. We’ll shine a light on inventors, new media artists, circuit benders, programmers, and people with ideas that could change the way we experience music, art and performance,” explains Moog Senior Brand Manager Emmy Parker.
Additional programming will compliment Moogfest’s tradition of leading edge musical performances from a line-up that pays homage to the early pioneers of electronic music, established giants and the artists pushing musical expression forward today.
Past Moogfest performers include Keith Emerson, Orbital, Thomas Dolby, M83, Massive Attack, Tangerine Dream, Amon Tobin, St. Vincent, Richie Hawtin, Squarepusher, Bernie Worrell, Flying Lotus, The Flaming Lips, Terry Riley, Richard Devine, Roedelius, Hot Chip, and many others.
