We are proud to announce the release of our epic 2022 Synthesizer Pioneers 18-month calendar, which honors 20 innovators in the field of synthesis from the past 60 years. This is the fifth calendar released by the Foundation focusing on the rich history of Bob Moog’s legacy and the web of innovation in synthesis to which he was connected.

This calendar is the first to bring to the fore the historic achievements of synthesizer pioneers from all over the world. It features:

  • Harry Olsen and Herbert Belar (RCA)
  • Harald Bode
  • Raymond Scott 
  • Bob Moog
  • Don Buchla
  • Peter Zinovieff (EMS)
  • Alan R. Pearlman (ARP)
  • Ikutaro Kakehashi (Roland)
  • Fumio Mieda (KORG)
  • Tom Oberheim
  • Dave Smith
  • Roger Linn
  • Wolfgang Palm (PPG)
  • Dave Rossum
  • Peter Vogel and Kim Ryrie (Fairlight)
  • Ray Kurzweil
  • Felix Visser (Synton)
  • Makoto Fukuda (Casio)

Many of the pioneers have contributed historic photos of themselves, with their hallmark inventions from their private archives. Also included within the calendar are scores of dates of particular historic importance provided by the pioneers. A brief narrative is included with each photo.

The 18-month calendar also weaves together connections between Bob Moog and many of the featured pioneers. His relationships with them ranged from inspiration to friends to colleagues to business associates. Secondary photos on many of the pages highlight that connection, showing Bob with his fellow pioneers.

The 18-month calendar is printed on #80 stock paper, making the images suitable for framing after the year is over!

We are deeply grateful to everyone who assisted us in creating this historical calendar, including the pioneers themselves, their families, and their work colleagues. It is our honor to share this documentation of synthesizer history with the world.

We also still have a few copies of our 2016 Moog Is Now calendar and our 2020 Minimoog 50th Anniversary calendar for sale. Like our 2022 Synthesizer Pioneers calendar, these calendars are historical  explorations printed on #80 stock paper, with each page worthy  of being framed.
