Tara Busch Releases “The Rocket Wife EP – A Benefit for the Bob Moog Foundation” PLUS Remix Contest!
“The Rocket Wife EP – A Benefit for the Bob Moog Foundation” has arrived!
We have carefully and lovingly created this very special 3 song EP to benefit something that is deeply dear to my heart, the Bob Moog Foundation. They have several wonderful causes that they are working toward, one of which resonates with me (pardon the pun) in particular – Dr. Bob’s Sound School. Aimed at bringing Moog instruments into schools across the United States to teach children science through synthesis, I feel this program will bring a much needed bleep and blast of beauty, logic and wonder into our lives, providing an “intersection of science and music”.
I have longed to host a remix contest and now I have my chance! First, download your stems for the title track of the EP, “Rocket Wife” here. The stems can be purchased with a donation of $4.99 or more – again, 100% of all profits go to the Bob Moog Foundation.
Then, upload your masterpiece here – we’ve created a special Soundcloud group for the submissions. Please submit by midnight, October 15th!
So, just to be super clear –
The Bob Moog Foundation will announce three winners on November 10, 2011. The winners will have their remix posted on the BMF Bandcamp site where it will be available for sale, with proceeds benefiting the Foundation. The grand prize winner will receive a framed limited-edition archival image of Bob Moog, a selection of BMF merchandise, and the opportunity to collaborate virtually with me on a track where I will supply vocals and synth soundscapes! Sounds like good fun, yes?
This EP is a part of the Bob Moog Foundation’s 5th anniversary, celebrating with a new logo & program direction, Limited Edition Poster and Archive Inspired Apparel. In the meantime…let me know how the EP grabs you and if there’s anything I can do to help with the stems, leave a comment or contact me via Facebook or Twitter. Hooray! Much more fun to come.
