moogmemory is a solo synthesizer show, with live moving image projections by Michael England, centered around the the legendary Memorymoog analogue synthesizer (or, more precisely a Lintronics Advanced Memorymoog (LAMM) – as modified by Rudi Linhard), along with other analogue instruments. This project is inspired by the pioneering work of Annette Peacock and Paul Bley (as The Bley/Peacock Synthesizer Show). Following on in a similar vein from the stillness of Montauk Variations, moogmemory is an attempt to engage with voltage-controlled circuitry and to let the sounds speak for themselves, as far as possible. Expect a sonic journey through voltage-controlled circuitry, warm, full bass textures, mesmeric repetition,  and the pulsating frequencies that only voltage-controlled oscillators can produce (and perhaps, even a gentle nod towards the 80s soundtracks of John Carpenter films).


moogmemory is due for release on The Leaf Label in 2015.
