Events at Moog Music Factory

Moog Music makes Moog instruments, including the Little Phatty and Voyager. The factory is in downtown Asheville at 160 Broadway St., where the analog parts are manufactured by hand. Check out these events happening there.

Even without a Moogfest ticket, you can go to MinimoogFest. It’s free and open to the public. Check out DJ sets by locals Marley Carroll and In Plain Sight (winners of the Remix Orbital for Moogfest contest), along with MSSL CMMND (featuring Chad Hugo from N.E.R.D. and Daniel Biltmore). Sponsored by QSC, Pisgah Brewing and Buchi. Thursday, Oct. 25, 3-6 p.m.

“This year’s entries are truly mind-blowing,” says Moog Music of the third Circuit Bending Competion. Finalist judging will be handled by special guests from Google, and the company will film the event for a mini documentary. The instruments will be on display in the Moog Factory all festival weekend. Judging takes place on Friday, Oct. 26, 11 a.m.

A Modular Synth Mash with special guests Herb Deutsch (synth pioneer, collaborator of Bob Moog’s and NYU electronic music professor) Alessandro Cortini (modular synth guru and Nine Inch Nails keyboardist) and Richard Devine (Warp Records artist and Native Instruments sound designer) will be a chance “to witness the synth gods generations collide.” Saturday, Oct. 27, 11 a.m.
