Moogfest 2011 is coming to Asheville, North Carolina at the end of the month.  Moog lived and worked in Asheville for the last 30 years of his life so it's only fitting that the festival be held here.

Moogfest honors Dr. Robert Moog and his electronic inventions such as the Moog synthesizer which revolutionized musical performances and recordings in the 70s   Invented by Dr. Moog in the 50s the music synthesizer did not become well known until Wendy Carlos used it for her Switched On Bach album in 1968.  Next came groups like Kraftwerk and Yes. 

There will also be a Synth Art Show this year.  It will feature limited edition screen prints that were inspired by Bob Moog. A variety of styles from concert poster artists and graphics designers.  Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips will have a limited edition print for the show.  Also, Brian Eno will be showing his 77 Million Paintings exhibit throughout the weekend which is an evolving sound and music collection.
