Mini-Moog Fest

Saturday November 18, 2017: 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room and Downtown Library: Secret Lab

This event is intended for all ages

When Robert Moog streamlined the commercial manufacture of analog synthesizers, he helped create a music revolution that's still being felt today. Join us for a celebration and exploration of all things synth at Mini MoogFest!

We'll feature performances by North Coast Modular Collective (which builds much of its gear from scratch), Mike Dykehouse (who brings the boom-bap with vintage synths), and the meditative trio of Chuck Sipperley, Kendall Babl, and Sean Curtis Patrick (playing ambient space jams). We'll also have hands-on activities for the whole family, T-shirt giveaways, and you can try out various synths, including gear from AADL's Music Tools collection, as well as talk to vendors, artists, and makers about how to create your own sonic creations.
