50th Anniversary of the Moog Modular Synthesizer

October 12, 2014 marks the 50 Year anniversary of the unveiling of the Moog modular synthesizer at the Audio Engineering Society‘s (AES) New York convention. On that day in 1964, Dr. Robert Moog introduced the world to a completely new type of instrument that would go on to change the course of music history and influence decades of future instrument design. Told by a Moog engineer, Moog Historian, and Bob Moog himself, this mini-documentary explores Moog Music‘s quest to resurrect the original methods, materials and designs used in the foundational modular synths. Through recreating Keith Emerson‘s modular system, Moog Music rediscovers the power, elegance, and enduring legacy of its first instruments.
