Moog have announced the MOOG HALLOWEEN THEREMIN VIDEO CONTEST, title sorta says it all.
The competition almost coincides with their annual Moogfest held in Ashville on 26/27th October 2012 - featuring artists Richie Hawtin, Orbital, Squarepusher, Thomas Dolby, Morton Subotnick - and many others.
Prize is to be a Moog Minitaur - (see our review). So grab your Theremin, shine a torch up your face, and wig out (only a suggestion - suspect more finesse will be required to actually win).
It’s almost Halloween again, time to drink witches brew with creatures of the night and let the unearthly sounds of the Theremin float through the ether. In celebration of the holiday we want you to produce your best Halloween themed Theremin video.
1. Grab a Theremin.
2. Create a video of you playing it that embodies the spirit of Halloween.
3. Upload the video to Youtube and title it “Moog Halloween Theremin Video Contest 2012.” All videos must be uploaded by MIDNIGHT EST on October 19th.
4. Send an email with the subject “Moog Halloween Theremin Video Contest 2012” firstname.lastname@example.org with the YouTube links to your entry.
Moog will choose the winner on the basis of originality, creativity, and best embodiment of Halloween.
Grand Prize is a Minitaur Analog Bass Synthesizer so you can shake the skeletons in their tombs.
Winner will be announced by Moog Music and Moogfest social media on October 22nd.
