My second #catsynth post. Buffy in the window on a sunny 70° February day. I know, the realistic Moog isn’t plugged in…Yet. Also remember, #televisionisdrugs (thanks mom!)

We love sunshine and 70-degree February days. And the synths, too.

NAMM 2017: Moog Music Tribute to Synthesizer Pioneers

This year our friends at Moog Music, Inc. had a very different sort of booth. Instead of the usual array of gear for demonstration, the space was bare and stark, with a simple kiosk and a wall dedicated to the many synthesizer players and innovators we lost in 2016.

It was a rough year for the synthesizer community. Among those we lost were Pauline Oliveros and Don Buchla, both of whom were memorialized here on CatSynth and whom I had known in person. There were also images and statements for Keith Emerson, Bernie Worrell, Isao Tomita, and Jean-Jaques Perrey.

Visitors were invited to wander the space in contemplation or with a mix of music from the artists on classic Walkmans. Visitors could also leave social media tributes to one or more artists and have an opportunity to win one of several current Moog instruments, including a Werkstatt, Mother-32 and even a new Model D.

We didn’t win, but were very touched by the way Moog used their space to pay tribute to the many heroes we lost in 2016. It was a unique and moving experience at this year’s NAMM show.

Dahlia poses atop a Moog Sub 37 synthesizer. In the back we see some classic Roland instruments, three Roland Boutique synthesizers, and more.

Dahlia’s photo comes to us via our friend Rob Robinson. You can read more about his music here.

Cute black cat with Moog Mother-32 and a modular synth featuring Doepfer, Pittsburgh Modular, and more.

That cat reminds us a bit of Luna 💕
