The Bob Moog Foundation brings sonic inspiration, engagement and education to Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit with an expanded Dr. Bob’s Interactive Sonic Experience. Featuring an array of synthesizers, theremins, effects, oscilloscopes and more, the Interactive Sonic Experience will be open to all ages from 12:00-6:00pm each day of the festival in the lobby of the Diana Wortham Theatre. The community is invited to explore the sonic universe and learn about the fundamentals of synthesis through hands-on interaction with a range of incredible electronic musical instruments. Marc Doty, Education Specialist for the Bob Moog Foundation and highly esteemed synth demonstrator with over 5 million views on YouTube, will be present throughout the festival to guide attendees through the Interactive Sonic Experience.
New to this year’s set-up will be Boulder-based electronic musician and performer Mark Mosher who will be bringing his multi-player “9 Box” to Dr. Bob’s Interactive Sonic Experience. Part collaborative instrument, part interactive installation – the 9 Box allows up to four casual players to instantly make music and shape sound using smart wireless sensor cubes called AudioCubes made by California-based Percussa. In addition to being a source of musical inspiration, the 9 Box and AudioCubes are becoming popular as a teaching solution in STEM schools.
