Show from 05/28/09

After a brief, Jazz-like detour, I paid tribute to the late, great Robert Moog, following his birthday last weekend. We heard some wonderful (Wendy Carlos), cheesy (Moog Party) and goofy (Perrey and Kingsley) synthesizer music. I also featured some pioneers of tape manipulation and electro-acoustics, with Steve Reich, Richard Trythall, Alvin Lucier and David Mahler. I might expand that theme out further on a future show, as I barely scratched the surface.

  1. Looks like a great mix again. Keep up the great work, Rich. I love moog-flavored moosic. You might recall that I featured a cheesy moog song during the opening comments of my Christmas podcast.

    Best, Kevin
