Exploring the birth of electronic music.
Moog has launched a new series celebrating synthesizer pioneers, called GIANTS.
Its first episode features Moog synthesizer co-inventor, composer, and music educator, Herb Deutsch. For the inaugural doc, Deutsch delves into “music history’s most prolific moments and expands on “the perfect definition” of what music is and can be: sound organised in time,” explains Moog.
Future instalments will include early modular synthesizer adopter Bernie Krause, modular synthesis legend Suzanne Ciani, and Mute Records founder Daniel Miller as they “describe their passions, inspirations, origin stories, and never-before-heard revelations.”
The docs will include interviews, original music, and archival footage, with artists sharing “perspectives around how electronic music has evolved and provide context for their place in that story.”
