Exhibit Opening: Electrifying Music: The Life and Legacy of Robert Moog

March 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Join us for the opening of this exhibit that draws from Cornell’s rich archive of materials tracing Moog’s lifelong fascination with electricity and its musical possibilities. The exhibit features instrument prototypes, design schematics, photographs, correspondences, and audio recordings. It also provides viewers with an opportunity to play a theremin and Minimoog supplied by Moog Music Inc.

Highlights include documents from Moog’s years studying at Cornell University, running his first synthesizer factory in Trumansburg, New York, and collaborating with composers and recording artists for whom he created personalized systems, such as Wendy Carlos, who popularized the Moog synthesizer with the album Switched-On Bach; Keith Emerson of the progressive rock band Emerson, Lake, and Palmer; and jazz musician Eddie Harris.
