In The Moog

From RNZ Music

In a world gone digital, there's a new breed of musicians embracing the warmth of analogue sounds. One of the most sought after studio set-pieces is anything bearing the label 'Moog'. In 1971, American engineer Robert 'Bob' Moog created one of the first commercially available synthesizers - the Minimoog - which introduced a whole world of musicians to the infinite possibilities of synthesized sound. Nick Dwyer spoke to Mr Moog in Cape Town South Africa, two years before his death, and meets a selection of Kiwi Moog proponents.
