This from a Moog Foundation press release today....

Bob Moog Foundation to Inspire Winter NAMM 2013 Through Legendary Instruments and Archival Exploration

January 21, 2013 (Asheville, NC) – The Bob Moog Foundation (BMF) will celebrate the indelible nature of the synthesizer pioneer’s legacy at Winter NAMM 2013 with demonstrations of vintage Moog instruments and an exploration of rarely seen archival material from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives.

Front and center at the Foundation’s booth at NAMM (#5307) will be Erik Norlander’s Wall of Doom modular Moog synthesizer. Encasing over 100 modules (including 22 oscillators), many built between 1967 and 1972, the Wall of Doom is a touring configuration of the legendary synthesizer that gave birth to an industry. Norlander and the Foundation collaborated three years ago to reconfigure the massive instrument into a portable, rack-mounted configuration. Four of the six racks of the instrument will be present at NAMM, the number limited by the space of the BMF booth.

Marc Doty, Archive and Education Specialist at the Bob Moog Foundation, will demonstrate the Wall of Doom at 11am, 2pm and 4pm each day.

Also featured will be one of the few duophonic Minimoogs in the world. Recently donated to the BMF by Tom Coppola, the Minimoog was modified by Doug Slocum of Synthetic Sound Labs in the late 1970’s. Of particular note is Coppola’s use of the synthesizer to create the signature 3 note Duracell sound. Slocum will be present to demonstrate the instrument at 1pm and 3pm each day of the convention.

On Saturday, January 26, from 5pm-6pm in room 203 A-B, the Bob Moog Foundation will present “Exploring Bob Moog’s Archives with Michael Boddicker” at NAMM’s H.O.T. Zone. Executive Director Michelle Moog-Koussa and Archive Specialist Marc Doty will be joined by legendary Grammy winning film composer (Flashdance, 1984) and session synthesist (Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie) Michael Boddicker. Boddicker has been three times N.A.R.A.S. Most Valuable Player "Synthesizer" and MVP Emeritus. He was the winner of Keyboard Magazine's Reader's Poll Award - "Best Studio Synthesist" 1986 & 1987 and "Best Session Player" 1988.

Together the panel will explore rare archival material including photographs, project notes, vintage catalogs, audio from restored reel-to-reel tapes, vintage ads and articles, and more. Boddicker, who has over 700 album credits to his name, will lend a musician’s perspective, speaking to his vast experience with the wide variety of early Moog instruments used throughout his career, including some that are quite rare.

Finally, the Foundation is encouraging NAMM attendees to bring their photos of Bob Moog at NAMM to the booth, where a “Remember Bob at NAMM” wall will be created.
