The Bob Moog Foundation and macProVideo have joined forces to create “Foundation of Synthesis”, a series of six new audio synthesis courses for music producers, taking viewers step-by-step through the process of synthesis using a collection of synthesizers including ARP, Yamaha and, of course, Moog.
The Bob Moog Foundation (BMF) honors the legacy of its namesake pioneer through igniting creativity at the intersection of music, science, history, and innovation. With education at the core of its mission, the Foundation found a synergistic partner in macProVideo.com, an online education community whose core commitments parallel those of the Foundation.
Says Michelle Moog-Koussa, the Foundation’s director and daughter of Bob Moog, “This partnership with macProVideo allows us to educate tens of thousands of curious sonic explorers via macProVideo’s vast subscriber base. Through this series of comprehensive online synthesis courses, totaling over seven hours of information, Marc Doty brings the very essence of Bob’s technical legacy to light with a clarity and ease of understanding that is rare to the genre.”
According to Steve Horelick, a master synthesist in his own right and the composer that scored every episode of PBS’s “Reading Rainbow” television show, “as Publisher for macProVideo.com and AskVideo.com it is an honor to be working hand-in-hand with the Bob Moog Foundation and their resident synthesist guru, Marc Doty, to bring this informative series on analog synthesis to our members.”
The launch of the courses coincides with the 6th anniversary of the Bob Moog Foundation and the Foundation’s “Can you feel the Moogmentum?” campaign highlighting its achievements and future goals. Moogmentum is sweeping across North America, building up to Moogfest 2012 in Asheville, North Carolina, featuring Orbital, Richie Hawkin, Mike Snow, Santigold, Thomas Dolby, Squarepusher, and many more A-list artists.
The HD video tutorials are available to purchase for $19.50 USD each, or as part of a subscription, priced at $25 USD/month.
