The Eaton-Moog Multi Touch Sensitive Keyboard
In addition to my time as Marketing Manager at Moog Music, I also did printed circuit board design work for Bob back in the 90s. The Eaton-Moog Multi-Touch Sensitive Keyboard is the main project on which I worked.
Billy Cardine :: Moog Lap Steel
Mix cutting-edge electronic vibration control technology with an instrument born on a train track, put it in the hands of musical omnivore Billy Cardine and the result is music with one foot in the past, one foot in the future and both ears wide open.
A New Studio Performance Piece
This is the first time Ben played with Sally and me and things just seemed to gel right away. Since I was mostly handling sequencing and background textures, I was able to shoot a bit of video and stills while we were playing. Instruments and tools used include: trumpet, Haken Continuum, (virtual) piano and Rhodes, Ableton, DSI Pro 2, Moog Voyager, Make Noise Shared System, Eventide H9, Borderlands, Animoog and probably a few other things that I’ve forgotten or was not aware of. I particularly enjoy how Sally’s brassy Continuum timbres intertwine with and compliment Ben’s trumpet work. And when you hear trumpet and Rhodes happening at the same time, it’s because Ben was playing them at the same time. No overdubs here. All recorded live. An incredibly enjoyable musical experience that I hope we can soon repeat.
“…an album of inspired soundscapes. Feel free to stream it first if you have any doubts. Rest assured that mere seconds into the first track, you will know that you are in capable hands.” – Ted Stahl
On “Xenography” an array of synthesizers, piano, nylon string guitar, Moog Guitar, shakuhachi and voices pure and processed, come together to give you, if nothing else, a grand tour of the inside of my head.
