Hi, I’m Wheat Williams. I’ve been a friend of the Moog family for many years and I’ve been volunteering with the Moog Foundation since its inception. I’ve done some press and media relations work, and I’ve worked in cataloging the Moog archives, but mostly these days I do IT and tech support. Michelle Moog-Koussa asked me to “live blog” this event. It’s a broad and impressive undertaking. We were here from 12:00 to 6:00 frantically setting up. Now the guests have arrived and there’s so much going on. Creative Director Dave Hamilton is onstage tracking a host of local musicians who are building up some improvisational music tracks with electric and acoustic instruments. Dave is mixing everything and processing it all through Moogerfoogers to create some hypnotic, rhythmic dance music.
Hundreds of people are here at the Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina.
We hope that in a few days you’ll see video clips from the event on the Electronic Musican Magazine web site, and also at GearWire.com.
I have a lot of photos and I’ll start posting them presently.
