Bob’s Technical Legacy Shines through Interactivity

Dr. Bob’s Interactive Sonic Experience has grown this year! Now in addition to being able to get your hands on theremins, Voyagers, and Little Phattys, you’ll be able to play the Minitaur and Voyager XL, loaned to us by our friends over at Moog Music.  We will also have two guests with us, Andor with his amazing PsYborg, and Tony Rolando of Make Noise Modules. We have also created custom educational materials to make synthesizer functions more clear.  Come have the envelope, filter and oscillator demystified! Find out more here.

Limited Edition Poster Art Inspired by Bob

Being brought back for its third year is SYNTH: A Group Art Show Inspired by Bob Moog.  The Synth Art Show is a showcase of hand printed, signed, limited-edition, screen prints  from some of the top concert poster artists and graphic designers working today.  Click here for examples of posters from last year and to find out who is contributing this year!

No presentation by the Bob Moog Foundation is complete without a historical display fit to awe even the most selective of Moog history buffs.  This year we are proud to present Moog Is Now:  A historical exhibition and sale of vintage Moog-inspired albums.  The Bob Moog Foundation and David VanKoevering have joined forced to celebrate the early use of Moog synthesizers in popular music, by displaying recordings spanning from 1967 to the late 1970s.  More information on the records that will be available, different selling options, and the collector himself is available here.
