Moog has launched the first video in its new Sonic Origins series that explores the genesis of creativity.
Today we debut Sonic Origins, a new video series that seeks to unearth the underlying elements of artistic identity. The series kicks off with Oakland-based producer Russell E.L. Butler.
Techno-rhythmic emancipator Russell E.L. Butler defines resilience: a scheduled performer on the tragic night of the Oakland Ghost Ship fire, Butler witnessed the sudden loss of personal music equipment, a community’s creative space and the lives of many dear friends. Choosing to create a new future, Butler is today releasing a new EP and preparing a non-binary workshop with the S1 Synth Library for Moogfest 2017. Here, Butler takes pause to reflect on ancestral inspirations, the interconnections of varied identity consciousnesses, and, ultimately, music as self-liberation.
