About this item

Moog Recordings Library is the record arm of Moog Sound Lab which was created and loaned by Moog Music Inc as a celebration of the life and work of Dr Robert Moog. Across 2015 and 2016 the project invited a who's who of contempory electronic artists for a 'conference' around the celebrated synthesizer. This week we see the fruits of these sessions via releases by Mika Vainio, Hieroglyphic Being and The Grid.

Acclaimed Chicago artist Hieroglyphic Being / Jamal Moss visted the Moog Sound Lab in the end days of 2016. Testing the lab through his prismatic rhythmic cubism meets synth expressionism methodolgy resulted in some inspired results, coining the phrase 21st century afro-futurism. Both parties expressed their satisfaction with the encounter. 'I believe Bob Moog was (in the late 20th century) creating his modular system 55 synthesiser for artists yet to come….artists like Jamal Moss' (Eldon Tyrell) 

STAFF COMMENTS

Barry says: There really is no mistaking Jamal Moss' saturated VHS technoid excursions, and this one has the added intrigue of being composed and played entirely on the legendary Moog modular. A match made in heaven.
