The Mind of Moog

Prototypes
A year after Bob Moog‘s death in 2005, several of his friends and family established the Bob Moog Foundation, a charitable organization dedicated to honoring his contributions to music. In February, what began as a purely volunteer organization hired its namesake‘s daughter, Michelle Moog-Koussa, as its first full-time executive director. The Foundation‘s purpose is to encourage innovation through scholarships, outreach programs, and community events.

The fledgling Foundation‘s first goal, however, has been to raise awareness of its mission. A more long-term goal is to establish a Bob Moog Museum to house his personal archives, which include prototypes, recordings, and various other objects that represent his life‘s work. But because those archives are already threatened by the ravages of time and neglect, the most immediate need is to preserve them. To raise money to do that, tonight the Bob Moog Foundation staged an event called, “Enter the Mind of Moog.” It was held at the Orange Peel, the same music venue that hosted Bob‘s memorial service a couple of years ago. I traveled to Asheville, North Carolina, to attend the event. I recorded some interviews with a few of the participants, and by Monday you should be able to view video clips of those interviews on EM’s video/events site.
