Painting With Synthesizers


The Bob Moog Foundation tells us that composer, musician, and sound designer Michael Whalen will be presenting a Facebook live stream concert with insights, inspiration, and Q&A on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 4pm (ET) /1pm (PT). The event is part of the Foundation's Moogmentum In Place, a month-long series of musical fundraising events celebrating Bob Moog's birthday and the one-year anniversary of the Moogseum, both occurring on May 23rd.
 
Whalen will broadcast live from his New York City production studio, surrounded by a stunning array of synthesizers and keyboards, including a Minimoog, Moog One, Moog modular System 15, and three Mother 32s. The hour-long event will be a combination of performance and insights into his composition and sound design process. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and to donate to the Foundation through Facebook or Paypal during the event.
 
Michael Whalen said, "I love talking about using synthesizers as sound design tools. We'll play with some synths and then I'll do my best to answer your questions."
