A Conversation with Herb Deutsch
Sep 27 2014
Herb Deutsche, the inventor of the Moog Synthesizer, joins our New New Yorkers Circuit Benders class for an afternoon Q & A and sharing of projects.
Herbert A. Deutsch is an American composer, inventor, and educator. Currently professor emeritus of electronic music and composition at Hofstra University, he is best known for co-inventing the Moog Synthesizer with Bob Moog in 1964. Deutsch has been credited with the keyboard interface of the Moog. He composed the first piece ever for the Moog (“Jazz Images – A Worksong and Blues”) and performed early Moog concerts at The Town Hall and The Museum of Modern Art in New York (1969’s Jazz in the Garden).
This event is free with Museum admission and open to the public. It will take place on the theater on the second floor.
