The Moog Lap Steel

Hey guys and gals, not sure how many of you have come across this yet.  In a lucky coincidence, Moog Music has been based in my hometown of Asheville for decades.  Bob Moog is the inventor of the analog synthesizer amongst many other things, including the Theremin, etc.  Thru a live music collaboration involving Cyril lance, senior engineer at Moog, I ended up getting roped into working on the development of this new Moog Lap Steel.  It's been really really fun to work on.  This video is with prototype #2 last year at Moogfest where we told the world we were working on this thing.  I was just beginning to explore the possibilities and am still finding new 'pockets'.  The product has been finished, and I'm now playing a beautiful Walnut/Mahogany version.  I just finished an EP with this instrument as well.  At this point the distribution and marketing is being 'targeted' towards the Synth and Electronic music worlds.

All this is kind of a work in progress, pre-production for an upcoming recording.  I'm pretty thrilled to be working with these guys, really having a great time with this music.  Thanks for checkin' this stuff out y'all.  And, as always, thanks to Brad for hosting.

This session was from just before our first show, filmed at the grrreat WNCW in Spindale, NC.

I'm gonna post a couple more of these, I hope that's alright with everyone.  There are a few sides to what we're working on, so I figure as long as I'm putting some of it out there, might as well show a couple different things.

My new band, TheBillySea!  This is a cut from show #1 a couple weeks ago.  We've sort of self applied the moniker 'global americana'...rooted in Americana composition, but with some influences touching on different kinds of music.  We were psyched to have Casey out for the weekend with us and look forward to alot more of this music in the years to come.  Thanks for checkin this lil vid out.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!  All the best, Billy
