Will Gregory interview.

Post by Arpangel »

Very impressed by this, especially him demonstrating the wind controller/Mini Moog, changed my whole mind about that.
Seems like a very turned on guy, clearly down to earth.
Great video.

I was able to catch this earlier today, and I agree. It was a great watch. And you're right - the wind controller with the Moog was fantastic!!

Saw the Moog Ensemble perform recently so it was nice to find this video of the man in the studio. Thanks for producing this!

Yes, you can tell immediately he is one with what he plays, there is definitely a magic there, between him and the instruments he uses.
He comes across as someone who it would be effortless to play with, and I find his manner, and general persona very inspiring and therapeutic.

Good interview.

I found a few things interesting, he’s obviously into synthesis, and by his own admission, his playing isn’t technically up there, if I’m correct, but he has an 8 octave keyboard, which is interesting, I find this essential, as you can get some pretty amazing sounds at the extreme ends of large keyboards, when using various types of synthesis.
His playing is interesting too, lots of dense harmonies, in a very pronounced style, and the way he played that wind controller with the Moog was very interesting too, he made it sound fabulous, just the way he played it.

It's no great surprise that he is excellent on the wind controller since he is a very good saxophone player.

Must put the Moog Ensemble on my list of groups I need to see live.

Yes, I too now have a wind controller on the shopping list!

Big thanks to SOS for the extra effort involved in producing a VT rather than a written interview. Personally I find this much more accessible than an article.

Yes, I'd like to see more of these, artist based videos.

"Couldn’t live without that"

"Those are good aren’t they"

"Yeah"

"A holiday in the Caribbean would be good"

"Yeah"
