Today is the first anniversary of Bob Moog’s death. It was one year ago on August 21st that the inventor of the synthesizer, passed away. This year, Moog Music is rallying the media world to honor the memory of Bob with a special, 20-second ‘Moment of Moog’ to pay tribute to one of the greatest legends in electronic musical instruments. During the Moog moment, Moog has requested that radio stations play a short musical piece, recorded on the Minimoog Voyager. Hear it here at Sonicstate.
Mike Adams, President, Moog Music, reflecting on Bob’s passing, had this to tell us, “Sometimes it feels as if he is still here; other times, he is sorely missed. One year ago his fate was sealed and the finality of his death certainly gave all of us pause. The ‘Moment of Moog’ is our way of honoring the tens of thousands of musicians who carry Bob’s legacy forward.�
Ken Soper, composer of the ‘Moment of Moog’ piece, said, “These sounds remind me that Bob, like the Minimoog Voyager, is alive.�
The Bob Moog Foundation for Electronic Music
Another organization is also set to honor and continue the Bob Moog legacy. The Bob Moog Foundation for Electronic Music will launch its Web presence on August 21st, 2006. The foundation will be online at: The objectives of the Foundation are to create: endowed scholarships at University of North Carolina-Asheville, Berklee School of Music and Cornell University; a Memorial Museum in Moog’s name; an outreach/mentoring program that brings electronic music into disadvantaged schools; and to sponsor electronic music competitions and concerts that would foster innovation in the field.
