Moog Recordings Library is new record label established in the UK specifically to release limited editions of recorded works, sessions, concerts, and audio experiments utilising The Moog Sound Lab UK.
Moog Recordings Library launches with three separate vinyl releases, from The Grid, Mika Vainio and Hieroglyphic Being, for release in 2018.
Each of the first releases is an album length session recorded at The Moog Sound Lab UK, an open loan studio from Moog Music Inc (USA) designed to encourage the making of new electronic works and to welcome UK based artistic and public access with the aim to broaden experimentation and practical hands-on knowledge with high spec analogue electronic instruments.
The portable studio was specially designed by Moog Music Inc and is centered around one of the rarest electronic instruments, the 2014 limited edition reissue of the legendary 1960s System 55 Moog Synthesizer system.
Moog Sound Lab UK and the Moog Recordings Library are produced and curated by Paul Smith of the Blast First / blastfirstpetite labels. At various periods, Smith has served as manager to Throbbing Gristle, Wire, Cabaret Voltaire, Lee Scratch Perry, Cath Carrol and others and has produced events for writers Ken Kesey’s Merry Pranksters, Alan Moore, Iain Sinclair, & Michael Moorcock along with all the multi-disciplinary arts club, ‘Disobey’ events.
The Moog Sound Lab UK is based at the University of Surrey’s Institute of Sound Recording and is available for use by the students there. The Lab also travels regularly to host residencies and special events in the UK and Europe.
