Book: Switched On - Bob Moog and the Synthesizer Revolution by Albert Glinsky
Switched On - Bob Moog and the Synthesizer Revolution By Albert Glinsky
Published by Oxford University Press
Foreword by Francis Ford CoppolaThe Moog synthesizer "bent the course of music forever" Rolling Stone declared.
Bob Moog, the man who did that bending, was a lovable geek with Einstein hair and pocket protectors. He walked into history in 1964 when his homemade contraption unexpectedly became a sensation---suddenly everyone wanted a Moog. The Beatles, The Doors, The Byrds, Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, Yes, Stevie Wonder, and many more discovered his synthesizer, and it came to be featured in seminal film scores including A Clockwork Orange and Apocalypse Now.
The Moog synthesizer's game-changing sounds saturated '60s counterculture and burst into the disco party scene in the '70s to set off the electronic dance music movement. Bob had single-handedly founded the synth industry, and become a star in the process.
