Google just turned its Doodle in Japan into a fully functioning analog synth attached to an old-fashioned reel-to-reel tape machine. Right now, it's tomorrow in Japan, and tomorrow is Robert Moog's birthday. OH MY GOD, this is incredible. There goes my day.
Bob Moog (b. May 23, 1934) is more responsible for pioneering the sound of analog synthesizers than anyone else. The spooky sci-fi tracks in, you know, every movie ever owe him a particular debt; Moog gear has been used on everything from A Clockwork Orange soundtrack to the soundtrack for Mass Effect 3.
