Moog have just released the first installment of their new 'Giants' documentary series, telling the stories of legendary electronic artists and innovators in their own words. The first episode is with Herb Deutsch, released on what happens to be his 90th birthday - wishing you a very Happy Birthday Herb! Here's the lowdown:
'GIANTS' is a platform for legendary electronic musicians and innovators to express themselves through the art of storytelling. This new documentary series, filmed and produced by Moog Music, is about honoring and preserving the legacy of these artists and sharing their untold stories with the world.
The first installment of 'GIANTS' focuses on Herb Deutsch, co-inventor of the Moog modular synthesizer. The composer, music educator, and friend and collaborator of Bob Moog journeys back in time to talk about some of music history's most prolific moments and expand on "the perfect definition" of what music is and can be: sound organized in time.
Join trailblazers like Moog synthesizer co-inventor Herb Deutsch, early modular synthesizer adopter Bernie Krause, modular synthesis legend Suzanne Ciani, and Mute Records founder Daniel Miller as they describe their passions, inspirations, origin stories, and never-before-heard revelations. Through spoken interviews, original music, and archival footage, these artists share their perspectives around how electronic music has evolved and provide context for their place in that story.
