Bob Moog was a legendary electronic musician as well as an engineering physicist. Moog’s greatest contribution to music was his invention of the first commercial synthesizer. This synthesizer, the Moog synthesizer, was released in 1964 and was followed by his most famous synthesizer, the Minimoog, in 1970. In his later years, Moog taught at the University of North Carolina in Asheville – where the Moogseum is located today.
