On Wednesday April 21st at 7 pm, Moog Music and Pastemagazine.com will launch the second season of Live at Moog with Amanda Palmer. Live at Moog is an innovative web video series featuring performances filmed at the legendary Moog Music factory in Asheville, North Carolina.
Bands are turned loose in Moog Music’s factory and encouraged to experiment with the incredible instruments designed and manufactured there, including the Theremin, analog synthesizers, effects pedals and the groundbreaking Moog Guitar. “The moog factory was incredible…. [they] made us feel incredibly welcome and let us run around like geeks”, says Amanda Palmer.
Each week a new session will debut on Pastemagazine.com’s homepage and on LiveatMoog.com. This season features Amanda Palmer, RJD2, Umphrey’s McGee, Joseph Arthur, Cage the Elephant, Evan Dando and Rogue Wave.
Each episode features multiple songs, behind-the-scenes footage and exclusive info on each band. Adding to the excitement, this season Moog is giving away a Moog Guitar signed by the Live At Moog artists to one lucky viewer.
“The second season of Live at Moog gives a rare glimpse into the magic that happens when great musicians connect with interesting new gear in the Moog sound studio. It’s exciting for us to watch some of today’s most innovative artists play and experiment with our state-of-the-art analog instruments.” says Mike Adams, CEO of Moog Music. “We are proud to share these one-of-a-kind performances with music fans everywhere through our partnership with Paste Magazine.”
