MOOG INNOVATION AWARD

Moog Music is proud to announce Thomas Dolby as the third recipient of the Moog Innovation Award, joining 2010 winner Devo and 2011 winner Brian Eno. The Moog Innovation Award celebrates pioneering artists whose genre-defying work exemplifies the bold, innovative spirit of Bob Moog. Like Bob Moog, Thomas Dolby's quest for knowledge and desire to sculpt the world around him led him to the world of electronics, where he designed his own synths, founded his own software company, and charged head long through the world of pop music and into America's consciousness. For expanding the sonic boundaries of the new wave movement and for fearlessly embracing the future, Moog is proud to present Thomas Dolby with this honor.

 

REMIX ORBITAL

Moogfest is partnering with Orbital to offer aspiring producers the opportunity to submit their best remixes of the duo's "Where Is It Going?" for the chance to attend Moogfest as a VIP, including accommodation for two, a meet and greet with Orbital, premiere of their remix via Orbital's Soundcloud and/or Facebook, amongst other prizes.

DR. BOB'S INTERACTIVE SONIC EXPERIENCE 

Moogfest 2012 attendees can delve deep into the sonic depths, connecting with bays of synthesizers, Theremins, effects pedals, oscilloscopes and more educational tools, by visiting the Bob Moog Foundation's interactive setup in the lobby of the Diana Wortham Theatre. There will be a range of new innovations by other manufacturers to explore in addition to the incredible Moog instruments.
