Google Honors Robert Moog

Robert Moog may have famously said, “I wouldn’t call this music,” but he may have changed his tune after seeing Wednesday’s Google Doodle. Google honored the music innovator’s 78th birthday by making the logo on its homepage an animated music synthesizer that can even be played and recorded. On Wednesday, Google visitors can play Moog’s synthesizer by using the QWERTY keyboard and arrows to switch between the mixer, oscillator, filter, and oscillator to tweak the sound—you can even adjust the pitch by using a dial on the left side of the Doodle. And that’s not all: the lines connecting the keys spell out Goog.
