Sanctuary - New Flickr Shot

Shot by Luca Capozzi. I saw this shot and the first thing that came to mind was how un-Moogy a Roland JP8080 was. I thought of perspectives on how Roland has not come out with something innovative in years, how "digital" the JP8080 was, and how far away from the mighty moog analog sound it was. A lot of people see Roland and their digital synths as the anithesis of Moog. Then I saw the title of the shot, and I remembered how Bob described himself. He described himself as a tool-maker who made wonderful musical instruments for people to enjoy; magical instruments at that. There is no doubt in my mind that a JP8080 is capable of bringing this magic to its owners. Bob brought synthesis to the mainstream, making it affordable and accessible. This shot forces you to see that. A shot of the Roland JP8080, the magic synthesis brings and respect to Bob.

  1. Your words are very kind, matrix. What you see here are two persons very important and inspiring into my life. My girlfriend and Bob Moog, who was (and still is) a great inspiration for all people into electronic music, both manufacturer and musicians. I see a lot of discussions about "Analog vs Digital" and we're so much into that mind that, sometime, we forgot some important lessons. No matters how a tool is made and how it create a sound.. it is an instrument that we should use to express ourselves.. to bring out the magic that are inside all of us. Bob Moog made synthesizers affordable and his passion and research had gave us a lot of new products to make our music. This man is an inspiration to me, as well almost everyone who make music using synthesizers.
