Moogfest 2018 is scheduled for May 17-20 in Durham, NC.
This year’s workshop will feature the Sub-Harmonicon, a new electronic instrument that festival organizers say has three main inspirations:
- the Trautonium, an electronic instrument, created by Friedrich Trautwein around 1929, that uses an expressive ribbon pitch controller;
- the Rythmicon, a proto-drum machine, created around 1930 by Leon Theremin and Henry Cowell; and
- Joseph Schillinger’s system of music theory.
The Moog Sub-Harmonicon is described as ‘a semi-modular harmonic kaleidoscope that divides into itself until everything that is up becomes down’.
