The mainstay of the Moog Ensemble since it formed in 2005. They offer the classic creamy Moog sound in a reasonably portable and reliable package, so there have always been three or four of these in the band. These instruments are quite old now, so it has been necessary to bring a backup or two when playing live, as they don’t respond well to unstable mains voltages or fluctuating temperatures. With the re-release of the Model D in 2016, many of us are using the slightly more resilient new version for touring while preserving the originals for studio work.
Whooo, that was fun! Thank you to everyone who supported us on our UK tour, we had a blast!
The group kicked things off at St.George’s Bristol, before heading north to Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music, then to Brighton Dome and Kings Place in London were tour concluded.
“The evening drew to a close with a further lift of the cap to the classic synth repertoire with a run through of John Carpenter’s music from Escape from New York. A fitting homage skilfully played but it was the self-penned newer music we heard tonight that enthused this engaged audience. They applauded warmly, entertained by this extraordinary and fun evening with this unique group of musicians.”
