Moogfest Conductar, by Odd Division

An immersive augmented-reality installation layered on top of the entire city of Asheville invites visitors to wander the city and conduct a generative audio-visual world through movement and their neurological response to the environment. Inspired by the psychogeographical concept of "Dérive," the installation runs on a mobile app connected to a brainwave sensor. As festival goers drift from one venue to the next, they will collectively compose new music with the electrical activity of their brains (EEG data). This music and the corresponding visual world will exist only where it was created and through mobile devices. Every minute of Moogfest the immersive world will evolve, both sonically and visually. The entire city becomes a virtual canvas to compose and explore through each footstep.

Download the iPhone app at or through the app store and pick up a brainwave sensor from Moogfest staff to experience the full installation from the Diana Wortham Forum every day of the festival.

Aramique, Jeff Crouse and Gary Gunn talk in detail about the concept, creation and production of the immersive augmented-reality installation, Conductar: Moogfest.

Workshops only available Friday 1:00pm – 2:00pm & Saturday 4:00pm & 5:00pm and does not require signup.
