Erik’s piano workout piece, “Dreamcurrents,” performed live on the rare Moog Apollo synthesizer and Minimoog Voyager at Isis Music Hall in Asheville, NC on May 8, 2014 along with Mark Matthews (b), Nick LePar (d) and Jeff Kollman (g) as part of the event, “A Tribute to Dr. Bob,” a fundraiser for Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool and The Bob Moog Foundation.
The Moog Apollo, Minimoog Model D and modular Moog system were restored and provided by the Bob Moog Foundation as part of their Archive Preservation Initiative.
Another work-in-progress demo of the Dave Smith Instruments Mono Evolver Keyboard, the Moog Sub 37 Tribute Edition synth, and the Korg Wavedrum Global Edition. Recorded into Ableton Live 9 Suite with additional Piano track played using the Ableton Push controller.
Video shot with the Fujifilm X-E1 camera. Edited in Final Cut Pro X. Atomic blast footage is from a public domain film found at the Prelinger Archive.

Improvisation / demonstration using the Little Phatty Stage II and the MFB Synth II – the only two sound sources in this little jam. The LPSII patch – SpringStretch – is part of a complete set for the LPSII currently under production for eventual release for purchase (details will be on the musicinclusive web site hopefully shortly)
There is a little reverb added on the LPSII but nothing else. The MFB Synth II has some phaser, chorus and reverb added, but the sweep is part of the patch programmed on the synth.
(The MFB Synth II is being played via a Fantom X8 keyboard – which you can see supporting it).
Another quick test of the Moog Sub 37… nine tracks recorded live into Ableton Live.
All sounds including the beat are from the Moog Sub 37 only (with a touch of delay from the Strymon El Capistan on two of the synth parts.) I tried to show a wide variety of sounds, from classic soft leads to crunchy distorted bass, as well as some filter and modulation tweaks.
And this time, instead of recording me actually playing each part (which is a pain in the butt to do) I thought I’d spare you all from having to look at my ugly hairy arms… and show more of the Light Show mode! As always, a good pair of headphones are highly recommended.
The Ensemble plays ‘switched on’ versions of classical music, John Carpenter and more.
Nick Batt talks with Gregory about the origin of the Ensemble, their gear and more. The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble first performed together in 2005 as part of the Bath Festival, recreating some of the ‘Switched on Bach’ arrangements of Wendy Carlos in the Seventies.
As one half of the electronic music sensation Goldfrapp, the keyboard-player and composer Will Gregory is one of the UK’s leading advocates of using synthesizers and electronic instruments to create new sounds and reinvent old ones. The band perform a mixture of specially composed music, transcriptions of classical works, and their own versions of music from popular culture and film scores.
We were lucky enough to attend a rehearsal of the Moog Ensemble – not strictly all Moogs, but a collection of analogue mono synths playing classical pieces and contemporary compositions
Moog Music Chief Engineer Cyril Lance gives an overview of the technical effort and advancements made during the design of the Sub 37 analog synthesizer. This video includes insights on the Sub 37’s new VCO design, mixer architecture, filter topology, as well as the implementation of paraphonic functionality via Duo Mode. Sonic exposition of the Sub 37’s performance potential is presented by formidable multi-instrumentalist Cory Henry. Henry is also a member of the Grammy Award Winning group Snarky Puppy.
