Moog launches Sonic Origins video series with Russell E.L. Butler


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.

For the filming of the first Sonic Origins, Russell incorporated four Mother-32s to construct a hard-hitting modular session titled “Sirens From a Distance”. Listen to the full track here.
