HOW DID THE ANTLERS GET THAT SOUND?
Brooklyn-based band, The Antlers were among the groups who came in for a Moog Sound Lab session during Moogfest 2011. They performed with an array of Moog instruments and changed the shape of their song, "Parentheses”.
Antlers front man Peter Silberman sings through an Analog Delay to accentuate his ethereal falsettovoice while switching between the Moog Guitar through an Analog Delay, Ring Modulator, and 12-Stage Phaser for sparse dub-like echoes and Minimoog Voyager Old School for melodica-like lines.
Darby Cicci takes the helm of the Minimoog Voyager XL, patching in experimental sounds and sweeping the filters while singing through a FreqBox and a Cluster Flux. The FreqBox gives him a distorted oscillator-synced fuzz tone and the Cluster Flux is used for vibrato. Darby also plays a lead line on the new Moog iPad app Animoog, arppeggiating notes up and down.
Michael Lerner uses 3 Minimoog Voyager Rack Mount Editions to create a dark electronic drum kit. He plays the Trap-Kat to trigger each sound.
Timothy Mislock uses a Moog Guitar with a Cluster Flux and Analog Delay while moving the tremolo arm back and forth for detuned string pads. He also plays the Taurus 3 Bass Pedals with his feet for the bass lines.
