Happy Birthday Robert Moog!

23 May

On this day in 1934, Robert Moog, the pioneer of electronic music and inventor of the Moog synthesizer was born. Sadly, Moog passed away in 2005 but his influence on the world of music and electronics is incomparable. Happy birthday Robert Moog!

Here’s a video demonstrating Moog’s genius.

With the help of Moog in 1969, David Borden formed the Mother Mallard’s Portable Masterpiece Co.–the world’s first all-synth ensemble. Catch them on June 29th at the Issue Project Room in Brooklyn. Tickets and info here.
