Converse Rubber Tracks and Moog Music Inc. partner to present “Converse Rubber Tracks X Moog”, a special weeklong residency providing free recording time to aspiring artists and access to a roster of state-of-the-art Moog equipment, including the Moog Model 15.  This special partnership with Moog – the leading producer of analog synthesizers in the world – will also provide artists the opportunity to record under the guidance of acclaimed DJ/producer and Moog artist, Nick Hook. Following the recording session, artists will retain all rights to their work.

“Converse Rubber Tracks X Moog” will take over the Brooklyn Converse Rubber Tracks studio for a full week, where five emerging artists – hand-picked by Hook – will record original music in an advanced, high-tech studio setting. Utilizing top-of-the-line studio equipment provided by Moog, chosen artists will also have rare access to the Moog Model 15 for the first time in 50 years. Recently re-released, the Moog Model 15 synthesizer remains one of the most sought-after 5U large format modular synthesizers, with its updated model – built from the original circuit board films found in 1973 – taking on original, vintage form.

Born out of the brand’s desire to give back to the global music community and provide opportunities to artists who may not have the means to afford studio time or the exposure of performing in front of live audiences, the Converse Rubber Tracks program began as a brick and mortar studio in Brooklyn, New York. Since the flagship studio opened in July 2011, over 900 emerging artists have had the opportunity to record original music alongside the Converse Rubber Tracks team of experienced engineers at no cost. Over the past three and a half years, Converse Rubber Tracks has since evolved globally with pop-up studios in key music cities such as Austin, Los Angeles, Montreal, Amsterdam, Mexico City, Johannesburg, Bangkok, Moscow, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, London, and Shanghai.
