Fascinating: A demonstration of a Moog synth from 1970

Back in 1970, Wendy Carlos (then identifying as Walter) was working with synthesizer inventor Bob Moog on his new creations. By 1970, she’d released a couple of successful albums of classical music arranged for the Moog.

She also served as something of a technical ambassador for the synth. Here she is giving a demonstration on the BBC. (Via Boing Boing)
