A few images from
AADL’s Mini Moog Fest

I popped into the Ann Arbor District Library’s Mini Moog Fest on Saturday, where dozens of folks twiddled the knobs of musical synthesizers of all stripes. Or as Pulp writer Christopher Porter put it, “a celebration of all the things that whoosh, squiggle, chirp, beep, bleep and gurgle.”

The festival was named after Bob Moog, who pioneered advancements in synthesizers starting in the 1960s. His machines made their mark on the sound of rock, industrial, funk, electronica and avant-garde music.

Here are some images:










Pretty good crowd, especially on a rainy afternoon.

Mike Dykehouse demonstrates his hand-crafted, modular, digital synthesizer. He got into synthesizers after he found he couldn’t really play the guitar or piano. Dykehouse said he hates performing live.

    This looks like a great place to take the kids. I have a roofing company http://www.rhillsroofing.com and we do work in Ann Arbor all the time. I may drag the kids to see this and would not mind seeing it myself!
