Experiment with the sound space

And we arrive at the extreme, at the concepts, the ideas about sound, no melodies or commercial bullshit, only pure imagination and consistency.

John Cage

One of the most influential composers of American history, John Cage was an American composer, writer, artist, and philosopher. Being referred to as one of the leaders for the post-war avant-garde, John Cage sought out a meaning and spiritual alignment between the electroacoustic music and vibration of sound without the use of musical instruments. Becoming a hunter and gather in his early twenties, seeking out many variations of composition and intelligence behind art, history, music and philosophy from the ancient history of Europe and Japan.

Renowned for his 1952 composition 4'33", which deliberately had an absence of sound; only to allow the musicians to silence their mind, with the frequency of the audiences natural vibration, a mere intelligent force that only those who have claimed to have the ability to hear a high pitch or low pitch frequency, only obtained through the heighten meditative force of breath.

John Cage had taught across the world, this method of chance-controlled music, wanting his theory of life with music to be understood with a deeper and scientifically proven study of the power of the mind. With the influence of Zen Buddhism, and Indian Philosophy, the ancient Chinese classic text the "I Ching" was the force and foundation for all of his composing for the rest of his life.

In 1993 the John Cage Trust was set up as a non-profit foundation and business in memory of his great works of art, philosophy, scriptures archived and repository of Cage's work. Having acquired 28,000.00 pages of the John Cage Music Manuscript Collection, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, allows many enthusiastic followers and students of his work to collaborate and extend this form of composing music within their own teaching and music art.

How Robert Moog's electronic instrument changed modern music

Originally founded as R.A Moog Co in 1953, based in Trumansburg New York. Robert Moog set up his manufacturing company building theremin kits and modular synthesizer systems. By 1977 the company was known as Moog Music, Robert Moog collaborated with Herbert Deutsch to invent the most popular synthesizers to date.

Many changes occurred in the 1970's for Moog music with the take over of manufacture Norlin, the current owner of Gibson guitar company. Who set out and produced several more synthesizers under the label but sadly never inspiring to be as unique as the original founder's product. Robert Moog departed ways with the company in the mid-1970's claiming his exit due to poor management and marketing. The company later closed in 1986 after several set backs in management and sales.

Robert Moog started his own label Big Briar, producing Theremins under the name Etherwave. Extending the range to encompass analog-electronic musical instruments and effects pedals, later recalled as moogerfoogers. Joining forces with the Bomb Factory in 1999, Big Briar co-developed software modeled plug-ins based on the moogerfooger effect pedal lines and Pro Tools to keep the classic Moog sound.

In 2002 after claiming the Moog Music trademark in the U.S back, Robert Moog relaunched and changed his name back to Moog Music. Releasing the Piano-Bar, a Don Buchla design, which allowed the physical movement of the keys to be transferred to an acoustic piano with MIDI information being displayed. Later that year a modern day version of the Minimoog synthesizer was launched.

Marking his 50th anniversary year, Robert Moog released a Minimoog Voyager Anniversary Edition under his original name and trademark Moog Music.
