Bob Moog Foundation Executive Director Michelle Moog-Koussa, aka, The Moogstress, shared her thoughts today on the question, “Why celebrate the life of Bob Moog?”.
Bob dedicated his life and career to poking his soldering iron around in the sonic universe and unleashing aural possibilities not previously available to musicians.
Bob Moog’s life’s work is an invitation for people to express themselves with a new palette of sonic possibilities. As a famous musician recently said to me “Bob kicked the door down and we just walked through it”. Bob Moog’s work is a portal to sonic discovery and a catalyst for creativity. That is certainly a life worth celebrating.
Here are some of the highlights:
- A folky MiniGoog video song
- Reader Julien Bayle created ‘the most Old School’ and UGLY Moog Doodle Hack.
- Synthesists posted a lot of Moog tribute tracks, like this Voyager workout.
- Spectrasonics’ Eric Persing add 78 patches to the Bob Moog Tribute Library.
Let us know if you’re doing something to celebrate Bob Moog’s life today – whether it’s with a toast, a tribute track or just getting your synth on!
