Electronic maestros

If you’re like me, and interested in things (old) synth-related, then you’ll love this: New Scientist magazine has interviewed some real wizards from the field of electronic music, and the interview is on-line: Electronic Maestros. Very, very cool. Everyone knows about the Moog line of instruments, including their maker, the never-aging Bob Moog. But how about Peter Vogel, who along with Kim Ryrie, invented the amazing Fairlight CMI? Or Dave Smith, founder of Sequential Circuits who developed the famous Prophet 5 synthesizer and pushed the still-current MIDI standard? For synth geeks like me, this is all great stuff…
