Moog Exhibit - Vancouver BC

In via Lorne on AH (title link takes you to Royal BC site - click here for pdf of exhibit):

"If you drop in to the Royal British Columbia Museum in Victoria BC between
now and January 30th to see the Linda McCartney's excellent 60s photography
exhibit, you will also find a companion exhibit about three other important
contributions of the 1960s: the rebirth of the poster in Haight-Ashbury's
Avalon Ballroom,focusing on the artists hired by Chet Helms: twenty-five
photographs taken of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's bed-in event in Montreal in
1969 where media used to promote peace; and two cases in memory of Robert
Moog, talking about his contributions, from modular recordings to the
Polymoog and onwards. The Polymoog showed the limits of analog compression
into smaller polyphonic packages and provided the analog model for the
digital revolution. The second case shows the history of the Minimoog and
its players, focus on Wakeman and Jan Hammer, with an 1130 drum controller
(Billy Cobham was a big user) and an Oberheim minisequencer #010.
Thursday/Friday/Saturday the Imax of the Stones Steel Wheels tour is
showing. This Saturday at 1:30 a tour with the photographer of the bed-in
takes place and at 1:30 Sunday a talk on the history of psychedelic poster
will be presented. John Lennon's handpainted Rolls Royce is in the lobby so
you'll know your in the right place."
