With big regret but in honour of Dr. MOOG I have to tell that Bob passed away yesterday.
I've always been having a big admiration for the most important inventor of synthesizers/synthesizer parts.

RIP Dr. Robert Arthur "Bob" MOOG, all my prayers go to you and your family now.

sigh. i'm glad he went relatively quickly. i have been monitoring his progress at the caringbridge.com site (enter bobmoog) and it's such a tragic story. what a loss for all of us and his family and business partners and friends! he'll be remembered for centuries, no doubt.

All things end, including the lives of Great people. His life was useful, and he gave much to the world. Long into the future, others, including many who will not even know is name, will build on what he created. Goodbye Robert Moog, Ph.D.

I remember my first synth, and how everything I did back then with it I compared to a moog. That pretty much says it all, he set the standard that all others in this business have strived to achieve. Thank you for your electronic gifts and rest well.

I went to the memorial yesterday afternoon. It was really pretty moving.

Many people with varying credentials in the music industry (mostly academics, instrument industry people and a few musicians - all close friends) as well as family membersand members of the Moog Music company family all reminiscing about Bob. Virtually no tears from anyone. As a matter of fact, everyone who spoke told at least one joke, usually jokes that they'd either heard from Bob or knew were his favorites.

There was music, of course, before, during and as the end of the memorial. A local band called Toubab Krewe played as the bookends of the service. They were a recent favorite of Moog's which I found rather ironic as none of them play electronic instruments. With the exception of electric guitar and bass the rest of the group all play acoustic instruments - Drums, Percussion and Kora (African Harp).
There were also a few performances by Thereminists and Wendy Carlos spoke and presented recorded pieces of hers that were some of Bob's favorites.

I was definately impressed with the image of what kind of father Moog was when the band began performing an up-tempo piece to close the service. All of his children (ages 44 - 24) got up at the foot of the stage and not only started dancing, but encoureged everyone else to do likewise.

I'm sure there will be more detailed accounts of the event here before long for anyone interested in checking it out.

The electronic music world is in mourning. Let us get through this so we can once again tweak those knobs! Smile

From Kent State University I learned all of the best things about electronic from the moog lab there. I will always be indebted to him for
all that he gave me to dream with-Thanks Bob!
