Our friends at the Spanish-language site Hispasonic.com are streaming Theremin music live for free worldwide from the Ethermusic Festival in Moog country, North Carolina. (Pictured, right: Randy George.)
When it’s not live, the previous recording plays on continuous loop. From Hispasonic’s Xabier:
Now we are just replaying the yesterday concert. The next live webcast will be at 2:30 AM (GMT+2) – 08:30 PM (GMT-4).
And speaking of Moog, here’s an update from Frank Schubert, who played at the show, regarding Moog’s new guitar:
The show was great. We opened up and then did a piece with Justin from Moog who was playing the guitar. Then they did the formal announcement, described the guitar and then Justin and his band played a 25 minute set with the guitar. Kevin Kissinger played a great set and then was joined by Justin on the Moog guitar as well. There were a bunch of people shooting video and photos. They will most likely make them available – I will let you know when they are posted. We did not take any video.
I did get to play the guitar for a minute. It felt great. It also sounded great when played. So I think it is official….
In comments — a correction to Frank’s description:
Jason Daniello from MoogMusic demonstrated the new Moog Guitar and his band’s name is The Broomstars
Okay, so that bit where I thought it was an April Fool’s joke — sorry! (Yeah, my April record hasn’t been so fantastic, since the Ableton Vocoder also appears to be in development.)
If anyone has other photos/video, drop us a line!
