Moogfest Presents Invisible The New Obsolete

ASHEVILLE NC – Moogfest announces Moogfest and the Asheville Art Museum are pleased to present Invisible: The New Obsolete. Amidst a sprawling landscape of invented instruments, repurposed thrift shop electronics and six channels of video, Invisible presents their 2012 work, The New Obsolete. In the performance, both typewriter and typist are reimagined via the Selectric Piano—an IBM typewriter that mechanically controls a piano—allowing the skills of a professional typist to become the talent of a lead instrumentalist.

Formed in Greensboro in 2006, Invisible is artist and instrument maker Mark Dixon, musician and video producer Bart Trotman, professional typist Jodi Staley, multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Henderson and electronics wizard Fred Snider. Invisible’s unique combination of installation art with musical performance has found warm reception at southeastern venues including the NC Museum of Art, the Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville, Elsewhere Artist Collaborative in Greensboro, SECCA, The Ackland Museum of Art, CAM Raleigh and the Cucalorus Film Festival in Wilmington.

Join us on Saturday, October 27 and Sunday, October 28 for performances from 1 – 2 PM and 3 – 4 PM.

Moogfest passholders can enjoy a reduced ticket price of $6 ($10 for the general public). For full ticketing details click here.
