Moogalicious perks-a-plenty electrify our IndieGoGo campaign

Our campaign to expand Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool on IndieGoGo is coming to a close. In its final days, we want to make sure everyone knows about all of the fantastic perks we are offering as thank yous for participation.

The Moogfest Voyager

Ok, let’s tell it like it is. Winning a Minimoog Voyager Select Series, beautifully crafted by Moog Music, Inc.,  is enough to get just about anyone who has ears excited. But our Moogfest Voyager will turn heads and make your ears perk up. Specifically configured in Bob Moog Foundation colors, this one-of-a-kind synthesizer boasts a whitewash cabinet and electric blue backlight to light up its commanding panel of sonic controls. What makes this $3500 instrument even more extraordinary than its outrageous sonic capabilities, are the musical giants that signed it at Moogfest 2011, including: Amon Tobin, Beak, Brian Eno, Chromeo, Dick Hyman, Edgar Froese (Tangerine Dream), Ghostland Observatory, Holy Fuck,  Joel Cummins (Umphrey’s McGee), Moby, Passion Pit, Suicide, STS9, Terry Riley, TV On the Radio, Wayne Coyne (Flaming Lips).

We can safely say that there is not another Voyager like this in the world. We are raffling it off as part of our IndieGoGo campaign.

Bob Moog Foundation 2012 Calendar: Moog Pioneers in the Studio

We are proud to offer our BMF 2012 calendar at two different giving levels of the Indie campaign. So much more than a place to keep track of the 365 days that will mark 2012, this calendar is loaded with photos from Bob’s archives as well as the archives of some of his collaborators. Many of them have been rarely seen. An introduction and text by Brian Kehew (Moog Cookbook, Recording the Beatles) lends insight into the seminal period in history when composers were pioneering the use of the Moog Modular synthesizer in their varied compositions.

Mooged-Out Volume 2

The Bob Moog Foundation is fortunate to be surrounded by a town full of talented musicians who are enthusiastic about supporting our cause. Fourteen Asheville bands came together last year to raise their mighty voices (and instruments) to create Mooged-Out: Volume 2. Spanning musical styles ranging from rock and hip-hop to dubstep and avant electronica, the album is a dynamic showcase for the wealth of sounds inspired by Bob Moog’s contributions to modern music. The album is not strictly electronic music, but an expression of the wider pool of creativity that Bob touched.

The Mooged-Out Vol.2 CD is included at almost every level of giving on our IndieGoGo campaign.

We’ve received some rave reviews about the CD. Here’s one from Doug Slocum, a synthesizer designer from the Boston area:

“It is seriously RARE that I can actually enjoy newer (not Prog) artists without simply skipping to the next track, only to find the same boring stuff.

Well, this CD is f***ing awesome.  I got thru it this first time and am ready to listen again and share my experiences.

What a great bunch of musicians.  Seriously.”

By supporting our IndieGoGo campaign, you are not only helping to inspire a future generation of creative and innovative thinkers, but you end up with a little piece of Moogy goodness to inspire your day, week, or year. Thank you!
