  • Synthesizer Innovator Robert A. Moog Dies

    RALEIGH, N.C. . Robert A. Moog, whose self-named synthesizers turned electric currents into sound, revolutionizing music in the 1960s and opening the wave that became electronica, has died. He was 71.

          A spiffy Moog album is Return of the Rentals. It is Matt Sharp's (original Weezer bassist) side project from 1995. Good stuff.

              And from around the same time, The Moog Cookbook. Nirvana's Black Hole Sun on the Moog, topping the charts. Heady stuff. Or not, but still rather nifty.

                Wasn't "Black Hole Sun" made by Sound Garden?

                Sorry to hear about Robert Moog, as well.

                  And it shouldn't have to be said, but his is one of the most mispronounced names in history.
                  His name is pronounced like "MOUGE" or "MOAG" and not "MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOG" (as in Moo).

                  R.I.P Dr. Moog!

                    Yes, it was the Soundgarden (one word) song.

                    It shouldn't have to be said? How else are we going to learn how to pronounce it?

                    Which is funny because, at least to me, those two words are pronounced entirely differently.

                    Edit: I looked it up, and, by Robert's own admitting, his name rhymes with "vogue" (i.e., "mouge" was a type).
