Delving into the early days of electronic music Moog presents a series of documentaries on the legends and innovators of synthesizer history and culture.
Beautifully shot and elegantly curated by Moog Music we can enter the world of the synthesizer trailblazers; those GIANTS upon whose shoulders we stand. We’ll be encountering people like early synth adopter Bernie Krause, modular legend Suzanne Cianni, and Mute Records founder Daniel Miller. Learning about their passions, their stories and getting a glimpse behind the curtains.
The first episode features Herb Deutsch a music educator and friend of Bob Moog who was a co-conspirator behind the Moog synthesizer.
There will be 5 episodes in total of about 15-25 minutes long and each one hopes to explore a different foundational contributor to this wave of cultural innovation.
