The Moog House of Electronicus: Coming to Los Angeles this Week

Moog Music will be in Los Angeles this week presenting the Moog House Of Electronicus, an electronic pop-up and synth guided exploration of the power of sound. Located on the grounds of the historic Kim Sing Theater in Chinatown, the Moog House Of Electronicus will be open to the public daily from January 24 – 30. Visitors will have the opportunity to get hands on with Moog synths (including the new polyphonic Moog One), and explore the deeper dimensions of sonic experience through interactive sculptural synthesis installations, an immersive audio visualization system, and daily synthesizer workshops led by synthesist Bana Haffar.

The Moog House of Electronicus is inspired by the Moog Island Of Electronicus; an experimental gathering that took place on the barrier island of Tierre Verde during the 1970s. After Moog missionary David Van Koevering was presented with a vision in a dream, the Island of Electronicus became manifest–a synthesized celebration of peace and love; an electronic happening designed to unite mind, body, and soul in a creative explosion of thought and feeling.

Today, the Moog House Of Electronicus continues this legacy by inviting all to trust their curiosity, express their innermost selves, and share in the vast creative force of the collective individual.


Moog DFAM Workshop Led by Bana Haffar

This hour-long workshop invites attendees to explore a living breathing world of analog synthesis. Using the Moog DFAM Percussion Synthesizer as an interactive learning tool, workshop participants will break down real-world sounds into their fundamental sonic components. This foundational perspective on sound will serve as a launching point to explore the capabilities of the synthesizer as students demystify oscillators, envelopes, sequencers, and patch building. This workshop is open to all experience levels and contains valuable electronic insight for the beginner as well as the accomplished synthesist.

Each workshop is presented in a small-group setting, and all necessary materials will be provided. Space is limited to 6 attendees per class. Those in the LA area can sign up to attend HERE

Info: The Moog House of Electronicus Pop-up is open to the public daily from 12pm – 8pm, Thursday, January 24th – Wednesday, January 30th.
