Bob Moog died today in 05? by lelly is not dead Q: 8/21/05 Electronic Music Pioneer Bob Moog Dies At 71 Asheville, NC (August 22, 2005)--Electronic music pioneer and founder of Moog Music Inc., Dr. Robert Moog, died yesterday afternoon at his home in Asheville, N.C. He was 71. Dr. Moog had been diagnosed with brain cancer (glioblastoma multiforme or GBM) in late April 2005. He had received both radiation treatment and chemotherapy to help combat the disease. He is survived by his wife, Ileana, his four children, Laura Moog Lanier, Matthew Moog, Michelle Moog-Koussa, and Renee Moog; his step-daughter Miranda Richmond; and the mother of his children, Shirleigh Moog. Moog Music Inc. company president, Michael Adams, shared the following thoughts about Bob: "Bob has been such a huge inspiration to all of us. In losing him, we lose a creator, visionary and friend. He was someone who taught us well and he was proud of this company and its people. Bob shaped music in deep and meaningful ways by changing how music could be produced and ultimately, how it would sound. He contributed to a new soundscape--a legacy that we will continue in his honor. He was a musical pioneer for the love of it and musicians everywhere have had the opportunity to expand their own creative horizons with Bob's inventions. He will truly be missed by all of us, but we take comfort in the fact that his musical innovations will live on in the music he inspired and the products we will continue to make." Moog started building theremins as a teenager and established the R.A. Moog Company in 1954. One of the first electronic musical instruments, the theremin provides a unique, tremulous sound and is played without the thereminist touching it. In 1963, Moog created the first Moog Modular synthesizer, with the more portable Minimoog following in 1970. The Minimoog opened the world of synthesized music to thousands of musicians. Moog sold Moog Music in 1971 to Bill Waytena who then sold it to Norlin Music in 1975. Moog left Moog Music, a division of Norlin Music in 1977. In 1978, Moog founded Big Briar Inc., in the mountains of Western North Carolina, which then took the Moog Music name in May 2002. Today, the Asheville-based company designs and builds high-quality analog synthesizers, guitar effects modules, theremins, and a unique controller for acoustic piano called the PianoBar. Moog remained active with the company up to the day he was diagnosed with cancer. Adams, who has been president of Moog Music since May 2002, noted, "Bob and I had been planning his retirement for next year, and in that process we identified two very talented people to continue Bob's legacy of musical innovations, Steve Dunnington and Cyril Lance. Steve is a graduate of UNC-Asheville's Recording Arts Music program. He has worked closely with Bob since 1994. Cyril is a senior engineer with a degree in physics from Cornell University." Moog's instruments have influenced many styles of music from jazz to rock, R&B to classical. Moog keyboards can be heard in the music of artists as diverse as funk masters Parliament and Funkadelic; rock icons Yes, the Beatles, and Emerson, Lake and Palmer; and jazz greats Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea. Today, top musicians still seek out Moog instruments. Moog keyboards and the music they helped create have enjoyed a strong following among players and aficionados. The sound of a Moog is truly distinctive--artists and competitors around the world speak of the "Moog sound." And the original theremins designed by Moog enjoy a renaissance today. They are used by popular groups and serious musicians for effects, electronica and classical music. Musicians and studio technicians across many musical genres have woven the timeless Sound of Moog into an integral part of our musical culture. Bob Moog was a warm, outgoing man who enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. He especially appreciated what his wife says he called "the magical connection" between music-makers and their instruments. Moog received a BS in Physics from Queens College (New York City), a BS in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University (New York City), and his PhD in Engineering Physics from Cornell University in 1965. He received his honorary doctorates from Polytechnic University, Lycoming College, and Berklee College of Music. His many awards include the Silver Medal of The Audio Engineering Society, the Trustee's Award in 1970 and a Technical Grammy in 2002 from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the Billboard Magazine Trendsetter's Award, Seamus award from the Society of Electroacoustic Music in the United States, and the Polar Music Prize from The Royal Swedish Academy of Music. He wrote and lectured extensively on a variety of topics in music technology and man-machine interface, and contributed major articles to Encyclopedia Britannica and the Encyclopedia of Applied Physics. A public memorial celebration is planned at the Orange Peel in Asheville, N.C. for n YA cut off the article! Anyway, my question for this was, what is your favorite type of electronic music?

A: I like that you did a question about Robert Moog. A lot of people don't alway think about the geniuses responsible for inventing the instruments they play. Hmmmm favorite type of electronic music? questions like that is hard to make a choice. One reason why is because now there is so many genres to sub genres that I like. The best I can answer about which would be my favorite type of electronic music is just be able to narrow it down a little. So'll say since the idea of composing seems cool, I'll say New Age, Ambient, Space Music, some certain kinds of Trance, EBM and sort of a ambient-electronic jazz fusion hybrid is what I probably consider my favorites although I like a lot of other electronic music, especially other different forms of Industrial besides shootoffs like EBM and a bit of House music, because I like to go to clubs too sometimes. I guess part of why I like those genres I mentioned the best is because as years went by, I started to get an appreciation for Jazz and Classical music. Jazz & Classical unfortunately is music I'm having to still learn a great deal more about, but I know I like that music a lot. As for Space music, I always liked the idea of going into space and those related sounds always sounded cool to me. Getting back to instruments I think without synthesizers and other electronic instruments, music would've been missing something very important and it would've affected music as we know it today. I mean heck to me it's like a commercial where they say some things in life are priceless - that's the value the electronic sound has on music - it's priceless. For example also think of the pedals people use with guitars too. Plus think of it this way - without the sound of electronic music, guitars would've had something less to work together with to put out sounds that work great together. All these artists dying sucks - it's depressing. Speaking of electronic music, here's a group I posted a question about last year- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAak4e1qXcQ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx6g4kmcyvk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfMlbZqRQX0 Here's another group I think I also posted about last year- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyXi-ObqX8I http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9Qv3aJfBY0 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tzRzoGu6aY Plus here's another group I posted about in recent months- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIiKxto4Clo And another group I posted about last year- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-IixtxKETU Also I think I posted a question last year about this band- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8klW9trVTQ I posted a question last year about Chrome but I already know you like Chrome, but also when I posted about Kraftwerk last year, I showed their really old stuff too like this pre Kraftwerk stuff such as this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs7RwHC-nOQ Plus another group I mentioned here months ago that's not exactly an electronic band but that maybe you might like is this group- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Q8juMD8x3Q This is another group I posted about months ago also- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ls5ff7B-JUk Now here's an examples of other stuff I like a lot- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqyp0cOfT0g http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIIjPJn7iE4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJUaCAIxSk4
