Incredible Music, Lectures, & Workshops Delivered at a Heart-pounding Rate

There was so much I wanted to share during the festival but so little time to be everywhere at once as well as broadcast my experiences. All of that aside, these photos may start to tell the story.

I was most certainly nudged in many different directions that went beyond my normal tendencies. I watched shows and attended lectures that made it evident that my perceived scope was pretty narrow. I would have told you beforehand that I had a solid grasp of what the weekend was going to be all about.

I pretty quickly found myself in the presence of legendary artists like Bootsy Collins or even more unexpectedly sharing a stage with a literal cyborg, humanly named, Neil Harbisson. The fun didn't stop there, and I began to get into the groove, although it was a fast paced game to try to keep up with 96 hours of Moogfest.

As a complimentary experience to the festival itself, I want to give a sincere shoutout to the affiliated photographers I had the pleasure to work with. Those guys were solid individuals with a strong sense of collaboration. I was able to pick their brains and share in the creative experience that brought me to Moogfest from the beginning. My drive and desire to document the event provided me with the energy necessary to stay up the long days and night producing images that accurately portrayed my experience of the festival. After a few nights of adequate sleep, I'm confident to say I'd embark on this whole adventure again in a heartbeat.

Moogfest Approaches
Mac Mccaughan @ The Durham Hotel

As many of you are probably aware, Moogfest is about to descend upon Durham and radically change the feel of the city for a very minimum of 4 days. Thursday will start off with incredible lectures and workshops followed by stunning performance acts scattered about the downtown area.

I encourage you to get out and spectate various acts that you may not consider your standard. One thing is certain - this festival has the propensity to modify your viewpoint and expand the way you perceive technology, arts and functions of your own creativity.

As a selfless plug, I have to mention that I'm thrilled to be officially taking photos for many musical events and plan to share live updates as the festival progresses. If you see me, come say hi! You might find yourself featured in some future Moogfest publications!
