“I am an observer of life, a non-participant who takes no sides. I am in the regimented society, but not of it.” – Moondog (1964)

Musician, composer, poet, instrument designer, and cult figure dubbed ‘the Viking of 6th Avenue’ – Moondog was all these things. Blind and homeless in New York, he gained international fame with his music, which blended Native American rhythms, jazz, and classical elements, laying the groundwork for minimalism. Flagey dedicates a day to celebrating the life and work of this iconic composer, who passed away 25 years ago.
