    The lecture “Moog: The Man I Knew and the Machine I Learned” traces the time from 1967 when Robert Moog was perfecting the modular synthesizer in Trumansburg, New York, to his later years in Asheville, North Carolina, in the early 21st Century. The audience will hear about Moog’s collaborations with musicians from John Cage to Wendy Carlos to Keith Emerson, the history of Mother Mallard’s Portable Masterpiece Co., (the world’s first synthesizer ensemble, which is still active today) and Moog’s two most famous inventions, the MiniMoog and the Moog Voyager. The lecture will end with a performance by Mr. Borden of his composition Easter – for Digital Audio File and Moog Soloist.
