Today is Robert Moog’s 78 birthday and Google has made a Google doodle in his honour. What’s really cool is that you can play the Moog keyboard on the Google homepage – all the keys and knobs work.
British musician Brett Domino has made a video of him playing Daft Punk’s Aerodynamic using the Google homepage keyboard.
Here’s another great Brett Domino and Steven Peavis video playing a medley of Justin Timberlake songs using only small instruments.
If you want to play the Moog synth using your own keyboard, here are the keys.
And this page teaches you how to play 4 iconic synth tracks using the Moog Google Doodle synthesizer – Gary Numan “Cars”, Soft Cell “Tainted Love”, Kraftwerk “Autobahn and Daft Punk “Da Funk”.
And here’s a screenshot of the Moog Google Doodle if you haven’t seen it or can’t access it from your country.
