Google Honors Bob Moog With Playable Synthesizer Doodle

Google paid tribute to Bob Moog today by creating a playable synthesizer doodle to celebrate the electronic music pioneer’s 78th birthday.  Moog, who died in 2005 at age 71 from a brain tumor, founded Moog Music and developed the Moog synthesizer, which was one of the first widely used electronic musical instruments.  A quick-start guide on moogmusic.com provides details on how to play the doodle, which actually allows you to record your creations and share them with friends.  I also found this helpful YouTube clip which demonstrates how to use the synthesizer.  You’ll need to use Google Chrome or Firefox to play the doodle since Internet Explorer can’t handle HTML5.  Hop on over to Google to check it out.
