Since 2004, Moogfest has been a forum for the exchange of ideas by artists, futurists, inventors, entrepreneurs, and scientists.
By day, Moogfest is a platform for conversation and experimentation, attracting creative and tech enthusiasts for four days of participatory programming in Durham, North Carolina. By night, Moogfest presents cutting-edge performances by early pioneers in electronic music, contemporary pop innovators, and avant-garde experimentalists in venues throughout the city.
Moogfest is a tribute to analog synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Moog and the profound influence his inventions have had on how we hear the world over the last 60 years. The exchange between engineer and musician that he fostered is celebrated with a unique festival format where the creative process is understood as collaboration among many people, across time and space, in commerce and culture.
Meyer Sound Labs and Virginia Tech’s Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology present A3: Connected, a presentation workshop discussing the sound system designed specifically for the artists performing at the Durham Armory. Hear examples of spatial sound techniques available and learn what to listen for during the festival. See the hardware and software that drives the show. This is Moogfest attendees’ opportunity to talk tech with experts from Meyer Sound and Virginia Tech to find out how artists are incorporating spatial sound in their music.
Featuring an immersive 360-degree sound system with 24 independent sources, A3 also highlights live immersive spatially designed audio experiences featuring Mouse on Mars, Valgeir Sigurðsson, Author & Punisher, and Shabazz Palaces. These artists will perform pieces created specifically for the 3D sound system at A3. Patrons will experience an incomparable sonic experience which will envelop the audience in sound, completely unique to the Armory and Moogfest in design and scale.
