Moondog Live!

Posted by Dog Days Films (Creator)

Hello Moondog Fans!

We hope you've had a great summer. We'll have another update on the film soon but in the meantime we'd like your help. We're currently cutting a section of the film that deals with Moondog's performance at BAM in 1989 as part of the Next Wave Festival.

Moondog conducted the Brooklyn Philharmonic and they performed some classic Moondog pieces including Good for Goodie, Bird's Lament, Present for Prez, and Stamping Ground. It was a brilliant concert and a star-studded night. We've interviewed a number of people about the concert and have some great audio and photographic archival material but we're looking for some additional archive from the concert, the rehearsals or post concert event. Were you there? Did you see Moondog perform, did you take any photographs or video? If so we'd love to hear from you. Alternatively, if you ran into Moondog around that time in NYC please get in touch with us here. If you don't have archival material but would like to share your recollections of the event we'd also love to hear from you. 

If you have any queries about the film or your rewards - please DM us and we'll get back to you asap. 

More soon, 

Holly & The Viking of 6th Avenue Team
