Moog’s excellent documentary on the modular synthesizer, made to commemorate the relaunch of three classic, modular synths, is the finest gear porn imaginable.
As you may have found out by now, modularity is very much our thing right now. You might say that our latest release, the TMA-2 Modular headphone system, has shifted our focus ever so slightly, heightening our modular sensitivity and making us appreciate other modular products that tiny bit extra.
Case in point, is Moog’s newish ‘Back to the Future Sounds’ documentary, which has sent our modular senses tingling with unbridled delight. Moog has wheeled in an impressive all-star steam of experts (Suzanne Ciani, Malcolm Cecil, David Borden, Dick Hyman and Herb Deutsch) Musicians/producers (Holy Ghost! (DFA Records), Gavin Russom (ECSTATIC/Entropy Trax), Max Ravitz AKA Patricia (L.I.E.S./Opal Tapes/ Spectral Sound), Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith (Western Vinyl), our very own TMA-2 Modular tester Jacques Greene (Vase/LuckyMe) and M. Geddes Gengras (Stones Throw/Leaving) and other wonderfully nerdy enthusiasts who explain the principles of modular synthesis at a level and pace where most laymen can play along.
As you might have guessed, this ultimately amounts to a concise run-through of irresistible, modular gear porn. There’s only one thing for it: press play and get lost in the rich, saturated, vibrant world of Moog’s timeless modularity.
Make sure you put your headphones to watch this.
