In Moog's new Sonic Origins mini-doc, which premieres on The FADER today, Moor Mother takes us on a trip to her Philadelphia. The clip features scenes of her creating in the studio and finds her explaining how Alice Coltrane, Billie Holiday, and others have inspired her to use sound as a tool of resistance. "Come visit my home studio and watch me experiment with the Moog Mother 32," Moor Mother told The FADER over email. "We will ride through Philly together and discuss my creative process and the city I live in.” Watch the mini-doc above.
