Insight Into Bob Moog's Early Inspirations
In this video, composer Herb Deutsch recalls his encounter with Robert Moog during his early developments of the famous Moog modular synthesizer. The 1960’s was a pivotal era for the progression of sound synthesis, and it’s inspiring to receive insight into Moog’s initial inspirations.
“We immediately started to talk about the idea of having synthesis at your hands.”
As Deutsch explains, a primary incentive behind Moog’s developments was to have the synthesizer be available in the common household. Given the current state of music tech, it’s clear that he achieved this goal and much more.
