Robert Moog

Bob Moog, the inventor of the Moog synthesiser, died yesterday. He was 71.
 
The synthesiser was an instrument that fascinated me – to the point where I built one for myself. Bob’s invention has had a massive impact on popular music. While analogue synthesisers have largely given way to their digital descendants, the initial impetus came about because of Bob’s designs. 
 

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
