Bob Moog Lecture (Cape Town 2003) | Red Bull Music Academy

Note this originally went up in 2009, but has just been uploaded on YouTube. I thought it worth another post for anyone that might have missed it, or anyone that would like to see it again. It's always great to see Bob Moog. :)

"Bob Moog changed the face of popular music by producing the first ever commercially available synthesizers. The first Moog Modular was knocked up for fun as a project for his musician friend Herbert Deutsch. But pretty soon, after the first strains of synthesizer success by Walter/Wendy Carlos, the Moog stole its way into the heart of rock and jazz fusion, and helped instigate all types of electronic music. Though he may have left us for a higher plane, as we found out at the 2003 Red Bull Music Academy, Moog left an enormous legacy behind, having irreversibly changed the sonic landscape of the world.

The Red Bull Music Academy is a global music institution committed to fostering creativity in music. We celebrate music, its culture, and the transformative minds behind it. Begun in 1998, the Academy has taken the core principles that underlie its annual workshop for selected participants and applied this curatorial approach to events, lectures, and city-wide festivals throughout the year."
