Megafaun in the Moog Sound Lab + upcoming tours + All Tomorrow’s Parties this December.

This past Fall, Megafaun the mountainous pilgrimage to Asheville, NC, and to the Moog Sound Lab.

“Phil Cook takes full advantage of the Full Sustain mode on the Moog lap steel…”

“Brad Cook masterfully uses a Minimoog Voyager to MIDI control Moog’s iPad based synthesizer Animoog…”

“Joe Westerlund uses a Trap-Kat drum pad run through a MF-104Z Analog Delay to MIDI control three Rack Mount Voyagers…”

“Nick Sanborn uses the Little Phatty to provide the song’s bass line, filling and enriching the sound with the MF-104Z Analog Delay.” 

Yeah.

WATCH “Hope You Know” above and on the Moog site.
WATCH SPIN’s exclusive feature of “State/Meant” from the same session.
