Last May, THUMP took a ride down to Durham, North Carolina for Moogfest, a cutting-edge festival that features brilliant programming, off-site events, and more. Besides catching some incredible sets we also got the chance to livestream interviews with a series of musical legends, conducted by DJ Lance Rock. Now, those interviews are being released for your enjoyment. Last week we brought you Laurie Anderson, and now we have one with the enigmatic duo known as the Orb. Above, watch them delve into the secrets of their past, present, and future. Asked for a message to complement the interview, the Orb sent us a dispatch from the deep:
"IF BUBBLES WERE SOUND , WHAT WOULD YOU HEAR IN 2017 ?
Chill out World it's spinning too fast .
nothing is beyond the orbs sphere of influence in 2017
oceans of orbs pulsate with reflections of radio interference …"
Sounds about right. Check out the video, and sign up for Moogfest's weekly newsletter while you're at it.
