The Losing My Religion star will launch an audiovisual art installation set to a soundtrack he has created at the four-day event in Durham. The piece has never been heard or seen before.

Stipe used instruments invented by Bob Moog - the inspiration behind the festival - to create his first solo composition.

"The installation will be a compilation of video footage he has shot over the years in New York City that explores desire and movement," a festival spokesperson explains.

This year's Moogfest will be the 11th to honour the life and spirit of inventor Moog.
