Last night, we had the pleasure of attending the pre-NAMM Moog party in LA at Kingsize Soundlabs in Eagle Rock. And just what did we see awaiting us in the back control room amongst crowds of excited humans? The spectacular System 55, System 35 & Model 15. Oh sweet jesus.
Maf took some lovely shots:
And a lovely video for you from Moog featuring heroes Suzanne Ciani, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith & Herb Deutsch:
My thoughts – I have only myself began to venture into the modular world having a sweet Pittsburgh Modular Foundation 3 at my studio at the moment – and already I can see how it does rewire (pun intended) your approach to making music; to me it feels very vast & open ended…very collaborative, as if it brings a whole other mind & perspective into the room. I sunk my teeth into this vortex earlier this year with the semi-modular ARP 2600 that Dave from G Force loaned me, and it has given me confidence to explore the modular world in earnest! Model 15, here I come! As an owner and avid user of Moog gear for several years (Voyager, every Moogerfooger under the sun & Sub Phatty) I’m pretty excited to take the plunge.
So! Maf & I will be at Moog Friday morning at NAMM to hopefully beat the crowds and try the systems for myself! See you then.
