In fall 2007 the Bob Moog Foundation sponsored an effort pioneered by Asheville, North Carolina musician, engineer and producer Dave Hamilton. The idea was to record local Asheville musicians performing their music with innovative twists from Moog instruments.
After months of studio work, the project culminated with this CD and the recording of a collaborative track at a live event called Enter the Mind of Moog.

Artists and Tracks
"P Good--Moog Foundation Remix" by Menage
Menage is a female-fronted roots rock band. This new version has Moogerfooger effect processing on the drums, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and vocals.
"Until I See Stars Again" by The Green Fields
written, produced and mixed by Chris Mondia
With a large and evolving cast of musicians, the Green Fields draw on a diverse range of influences to make their deeply personal and unique sound. "Until I See Stars Again", presented here in an alternate version than what will appear on their forthcoming sophomore effort, features a Moog Voyager, played by Jon Paul Hess, as its centerpiece.
"Now You Know" by Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band
The band donated multitrack masters for the song “Now You Know” which was originally tracked at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC. The tracks were then processed through Moogerfooger Lopass Filter, Ring Modulator, Phaser, and Analog Delay by Dave Hamilton. As The Booty Band has not experimented much with this kind of technology, they say: “We’re very happy to have our knobs twisted and our Moogers Foogered.”
Me Have Fun by Ruby Slippers
"me have fun" copyright 2006
lyrics by Molly Kummerle
music by: Molly Kummerle, Andy John, Robin Tolleson
All parts & vocals played/sang, engineered, & produced by Molly Kummerle in her den on a Zoom MRS-8 digital recorder, using a Roland 3500 S digital electric piano and a Yamaha PRS-7 420 keyboard. The Zoom media card was then passed on to Dave Hamilton who converted each track into useable waveforms and remixed the song using Moogerfoogers at Silvermine Studio.
My Heart Trembles by Broomstars
Broomstars (Jason, Liz, Clayton and Jared) have been 100% committed to preserving Bob’s legacy. This song is heavily saturated with lush sonic landscapes using Moogerfoogers and the Minimoog Voyager. Bob wanted the musician to have a limitless palette from which to create. Also, included at the end, and quite heart-warming was the addition of Jared’s daughter’s heartbeat (in utero).
Willow by Chris Tanfield
Chris Tanfield recorded “Willow” with engineering help from Jon Paul Hess at Silvermine Studio. The song features acoustic guitar, vocals through Moogerfooger delay effects, and Theremin through delay being amplified through a Leslie speaker.
Funk in ya Knock by Agent 23
Agent 23 is an MC/Producer, soloist and member of the notorious GFE collective. His self-produced song, "Funk in ya Knock", is an elbow to the ribs of overserious mainstream hip hop, and features a keys solo heavily dosed by the Moogwork of Dave Hamilton.
Fakie Rock by Strut
Strut plays a mix of Ska/Funk & Rock, and lately their songwriting has taken an electronic/psychedelic turn due the help of the Moogerfoogers and their endless sonic possibilities. They also used a Minimoog Voyager and an original Minimoog keyboard for overdubs.
"Turn it Around" was composed by Josh Blake of Josh Blake's Jukebox (formerly the Big Money Band) specifically for this project. Josh was able to gain the talents of Eric Krasno of Soulive to help give this song it's original funky flavor. Eric plays guitar, along with multiple tracks of Moog Voyager on this recording.
