BOB MOOG FOUNDATION launches Exploring the Moog Liberation virtual event examining legendary keytar synthesizer
ASHEVILLE, N.C. /Music Industry Newswire/ — The Bob Moog foundation has announced its “Exploring the Moog Liberation” virtual event for Dec. 11, 2021, delving into the now-legendary keytar synthesizer originally released by Moog Music, Inc. (Buffalo, NY) in 1980. Former Moog Music Engineer, August Worley will examine the historical, technical, and musical aspects of this lesser-known instrument, as well as lend unique insights from his time working at the Moog Music factory, and share historical materials from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives.
“The Moog Liberation was innovative not only because it was the first mass-produced keytar synthesizer, but also because it had a very unusual combination of capabilities, which drew their provenance from a variety of other Moog synthesizers,” noted Worley. “It has a rich history and technical background that will be the focus of our discussion during this virtual event.”
