MOOG SOUND LAB (Moogfest Edition): Matthew Dear – Earthforms
Michigan based, Ghostly International co-founder and Moogfest alumni Matthew Dear visited the Moog Sound Lab where he completely deconstructed and then recreated the song “Earthforms” from his 2012 LP “Beams”
Matthew Dear sings through an MF-104Z Analog Delay for a slapback effect.
Greg Paulus plays Trumpet through an MF-104Z Analog Delay using long delay time to harken long repeating echoes of each trumpet line
Samer Ghadry is playing the Moog Guitar through an MF-104Z Analog Delay, utilizing the Controlled Sustain mode, which allows him to sustain single strings while the strings he’s not playing are totally muted
Ian Chang drives the song using trap-kat drum pads triggering 3 Minimoog Voyager Rack Mount Editions. Ian uses the Envelope Gate switch to sustain continuous sound during parts of the song.
Danny Scales, rounds out Earthforms with his bass guitar.
