Minimoog Mini-Documentary

The First Decade      05/05/11

Moog Music has released a new 'mini documentary' that looks at the history of the Minimoog

Here's what Moog has to say about the mini-documentary:

In this first installment documenting the journey of the Minimoog synth through the 1970's, we explore the musicians and the people that were instrumental in bringing the instrument to prominence.

We also sit with one of Moog Music's earliest engineers, Bill Hemsath, who recalls the process of the Minimoog's birth and sheds some light on what sets the Moog synthesizer apart from other analog synths.

The documentary also features performance footage of key players, in a variety of genres, ranging from Rick Wakeman to Chick Corea to Bob Marley.

who better to make a doc on one of the best & most useable monosynths of all time but moogmusic themselves. Great stuff from Hemsath. Enjoyable viewing, with some great music clips. That reminds me...my moog voyager's exp pedal is somewhere other than the studio..
