The Invention and Impact of the Moog SynthesizerBook - 2002
Though ubiquitous today, available as a single microchip and found in any electronic device requiring sound, the synthesizer when it first appeared was truly revolutionary. Something radically new - an extraordinary rarity in musical culture - it was an instrument that used a genuinely new source of sound: electronics. How this came to be - how an engineering student at Cornell and an avant-garde musician working out of a storefront in California set this revolution in motion - is the story told for the first time in Analog Days, a book that explores the invention of the synthesizer and its impact on popular culture.
