Moogfest 2017

Moogfest 2017

Durham, USA will host Moogfest 2017 in May, 18-21. Moogfest organizers underline “Rather than growing year after year, we’re more concerned with how we can make a bigger impact with everything we do. It’s our responsibility to provide a platform that encourages them to create this change.”

MOOGFEST 2017Last year Moogfest welcomed 40,000 participants from 22 countries and 5,6 million people watched the broadcast! Event of the year 2017 is focused on musicians who are the true future makers according to the organizers.

The festival will go non-stop night and day offering special programs with the core subject of our future and the future of our music. The daytime will invite us to explore presentations, conversations and workshops altogether forming ”Future Thought” programming pointed at the main music trends of the 21th century.

Attendants will take part in lots of events relating to the collaboration of instruments makers and electronic production and design students at Berklee College of Music, demonstration and performance from Nona Hendryx, master classes from Moor Mother aka Camae Ayewa, Wolf Eyes co-presented by Trip Metal Fest, the Brooklyn-based record label RVNG Intl. bringing Visible Cloaks and 70s synth pop pioneers Syrinx.

By night, the festival will let electronic musicians as well as pop and avant garde experimentalists perform within the “Future Sound” part of the event.

We’ll meet Grammy nominee Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein with their popular Netflix series “Stranger Things” soundtrack (right before airing the season 2), electronic music duo from London Simian Mobile Disco and their manager Jas Shaw alongside Laraaji and his meditation workshop.

2017 highlights in brief:

  • The Future of Creativity - futurists, philosophers and visionary artists are going to touch upon or even immerse in the future of music, discussing the looks, reasons and tools of the new art
  • Hacking Systems will get deep into they ways arts-engineering software toolkits transformed the last decade
  • Instrument Design concerns instrument design, radical innovations, creation, control and performance possibilities
  • The Joyful Noise of STEAM is dedicated to inspire next generation whether they invent or create
  • Sci-Fi Wishes and Utopian Dream helping to believe in possible implementation of utopian ideas and technical dreams
  • Spatial Sound will consider the surround sound topic and 3D music
  • Transhumanism – the emergence of bio-art is becoming obvious. Biotechnology is already a statement in the world of science why not invade the territory of aesthetics?
