Moog Music has announced Garag Mahal's Discovery, an exploration of the Moog Guitar's sonic palette.
Garaj Mahal's Fareed Haque was one of a handful of musicians given access to The Moog Guitar prior to its launch.
Whether overdubbing seven Moog Guitar parts to recreate a Vivaldi lute concerto or sampling, processing and remixing The Moog Guitar with Ableton Live (by Garaj Mahal keyboardist and Moog synth wiz, Eric Levy), Fareed Haque and company never sacrifice musical expression for technical showmanship.
“I have long been a fan of Fareed, Eric and Garaj Mahal - both for their incredible musicianship and who they are as people." said Cyril Lance, Moog Chief Technical Alchemist and resident blues guitarist.
“As the Moog Guitar came to market, I knew Fareed would know what to do with this axe as he was instrumental in its development. I'm extremely proud of this CD by Garaj Mahal. It represents the best of collaboration and the unique link between us as inventors and the musicians who use our instruments. Fareed takes us on a seemingly effortless but breathtaking tour of the sonic landscape of the guitar supported by his colleagues. His ability to explore so many genres and bring new voices to each is extremely gratifying and inspiring."
