People absolutely love Google Doodles and today Google has went way over the top to pay respect to Bob Moog, the man who is credited for revolutionizing modern day music. He invented the first electrical music device, he named the Moog Synthesizer.
The Moog Synthesizer was first introduced at the Audio Engineering Society convention in 1964. Google and others credit Moog for the music of legends such as The Beatles, The Doors, Stevie Wonder, Kraftwerk and others.
To celebrate Moog’s life, he passed away 7 years ago in 2005 at the age of 71, Google has an interactive web based Moog Synthesizer that you can play, record and share with friends.
To give it a try, go to Google.com and let the page load. Then you can click on the device and to record your music, click the record button. After the recording is done, you can share it on Google+ or via a special short URL.
Google posted instructions on how to use the Moog Synthesizer on their Google Blog.
