MOOG Music Being Sued for Misogyny / Employment Discrimination

Former Moog employee Hanna Green filed a lawsuit against Moog Music, Inc. You can find a short case summary and court documents here and here. It appears Moog attempted to have the case dismissed but it was denied. The case is currently in litigation.

The following is via The Ashville Blade where you'll find a full write-up. There is no input in the article from Moog Music or any other employees.

"A civil rights lawsuit tells the story of workplace discrimination, verbal abuse, assault and rampant misogyny at a major Asheville company

Graphic by Orion Solstice

[This story describes acts of misogyny, discrimination, threats of violence, assault and workplace abuse]

Moog, the major synthesizer company, is one of Asheville’s most prominent businesses, considered a mainstay of the city’s economy (and marketing). In the public eye the 'employee-owned' firm is known for progressive attitudes that seem to make it fit in with the popular image Asheville’s likes to project.

'To all the trailblazers, leaders, barrier breakers, artists, entrepreneurs, activists, family members, friends, colleagues, mentors, and all women who inspire us daily, thank you,' Moog’s official Twitter trumpeted last International Women’s Day.

This is the company Hannah Green thought she was joining in 2018 when she was hired as a sales assistant. She would come to see that image was far from the reality. According to a federal civil rights lawsuit filed by Green and her attorney, Sean Soboleski, instead of a wonderful career at a progressive company, she faced extensive misogyny, discrimination and even physical assault.

Now, she says her goal is 'to make sure Moog Music never does this to anyone else ever again,' and the company’s facing a federal civil rights lawsuit seeking over $1 million.

A dangerous boy’s club

The image of Moog as a feminist, forward-thinking company breaks down with even a look at their employee demographics. Of 200 employees, barely 10 percent aren’t cis men. Describing Moog as a 'boys club,' Green tells the Blade, might just be an understatement. Women in management are rare. While the current VP, Nick Valente, rose to his position in three years, a woman took 15 years to reach a management position. This comes, as multiple examples cited by the lawsuit allege, with a dangerously misogynistic workplace culture.

'There were so many inappropriate jokes,' Green said. 'There was a joke about golden showers, they used to make dick jokes constantly.'

Jokes like that rarely just stay jokes. Work cultures like this always build towards something truly terrifying.

'One of my last weeks there the guy that assaulted me and carried a knife, made a joke about killing a woman in a sales team meeting,' Green recalls. Management took no action when she reported it."

The Dust Collector.. is Dusty.. // Good or bad you decide.

video by Ricky Tinez

"Pre-Ordered this ages ago and completely forgot about it until it showed up! The Dust Collector is an All Analog Fx Box, Multi-effects unit, whatever you want to call it. It has an Analog Spring reverb, phaser, delay, you get the idea. Long story short, i love it and it bugs me all at the same time. It's not necessarily a Dust Collector review, but its the closest i could get to one. Hope you enjoy, if you want to hear even crazier sounds check out Hainbach's Video on it - [posted here]

Vintage Russian Lel UDS drum synthesizer

via this auction

Where's the audio out? According to Ruskeys, "The electric percussion instrument Lel`UDS combines a synthesizing module & two drum pads (with rubber surface) on the stand for live playing. It can be used as a supplement to the standard drum module to get synthesized sounds with the possibility to change sound parameters. The main parameters are divided into two groups : TONE & NOISE , which include tone, attack, range, timbre, decay & so on. There is also a sensetivity level, a ballance between noise & tone, a master level. There are some connectors on on the rear panel- 2 trigger outputs and main output.

Pic of the inside below. Auction description:

"Vintage Russian drum synthesizer. Rather rare. It can be work with any pads or triggers, devices with cv gate or with mobile phone even. This module has two separate control units. Usual pitch, attack, decay and unusual space controllers and until the same controllers for noice control. You can use two pads simultaneously with two inputs and one output. Buyer will receive translate for all Russian language titles. Also you can mix sound of external source of any other signal for processing it by this drum synth, it will be very interesting. Very good working and external condition. Voltage is 220v, 5 din connectors. Comes with power cord."

The side logo reminds me of Alesis.

Studio Electronics MIDI Mini v1 w/ Moog Boards SN 170x

via this auction

"This is one of the MIDI Mini’s that has original Mini Moog boards in it. It functions as it is supposed to. As you can see it is scratched, but that doesn’t affect the sound in any way. “#1” is painted on the back to indicate what rack mount item that it was in the studio that owned it before I bought it about 10 years ago. I am selling it because the new features on the MIDI Mini V30 are more important to me than having a vintage unit. I also need the proceeds from the sale to purchase a Micro Moog or similar Moog for my Moog drum that I pictured in the ad. The drum is not for sale."

video by Rick Jelliffe

"I have had a project of the last decade or two, to figure out why the Pro Soloist synth had such a unique sound: this video looks at why I came up with Fricko's ProPulse DIY eurorack module and how to fit it into a patch to give sounds in the same 'Pro Soloist' family."
