Ay! I just spend four days on the Moogfestival 2018 in Durham / US and they were the most intense and spaced out in a while.
Not only was it my first ever performance in the US, but also the mix of jet lag, several performances, my installation ‘Soft Manipulator’, talking conversations and countless interviews made it very unreal. My own TRIPODS One performance took place at the old wooden Durham ballroom and despite a no-soundcheck schedule it worked out well. After that I contributed with some robots for Mouse on Mars and Spank Rock Official’s Dimensional People performance.
I also managed to meet Herb Deutsch, 86y old co-creator of the moog synth and listen to his stories; watch Suzanne Ciani, visionary synth guru play here Buchla Synth and finally to drink vodka the self-proclaimed Queen of Canabis Yoga.
#Moogfestival, I’ll definitely come back!
