R.I.P. Bob Moog

From Moog Music

ASHEVILLE, N.C. . August 21, 2005 . Bob died this afternoon at his home in Asheville, N.C. He was 71. Bob was diagnosed with brain cancer (glioblastoma multiforme or GBM) in late April 2005. He had received both radiation treatment and chemotherapy to help combat the disease. He is survived by his wife, Ileana, his five children, Laura Moog Lanier, Matthew Moog, Michelle Moog-Koussa, Renee Moog, and Miranda Richmond; and the mother of his children, Shirleigh Moog.

Bob was warm and outgoing. He enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. He especially appreciated what Ileana referred to as “the magical connection” between music-makers and their instruments.

No public memorial is planned. Fans and friends can direct their sympathies or remembrances to

Bob’s family has established The Bob Moog Foundation dedicated to the Advancement of Electronic Music in his memory. Many of his longtime collaborators including musicians, engineers and educators have agreed to sit on its executive board including David Borden, Wendy Carlos, Joel Chadabpe, John Eaton, David Mash, and Rick Wakeman.

Woah, looks like one of my favourite producers, Domu (Dominic Stanton) is heading to Australia. He’s produced under a whole swag of names (Bakura, Blue Monkeys, Domu and Volcov, Kudu, Rima, Sonar Circle, Static Imprints, Vaceo, Yotoko, Realside, Umod, Zoltar) and released on stacks of labels (Sonar Kollektiv, JCR, Compost Records, Archive, 2000 Black, Irma, Good Looking, Spinning Wheel and Arision). He’s definitely at the forefront of the broken beat scene and worth checking out.

Don’t know about other states, but he’s dropping into Sydney to play at the Civic on the 9th September (I’ll probably end up being on call that weekend…)

Also coming up musically that I’ll probably check out:

Friday 16th Aug: Architecture In Helsinki at the Metro
Saturday 17th Aug: Pivot at The Mandarin Club
Saturday 17th Aug: Miss Memory at High Jinks at the Sly Fox in Enmore
Tuesday 23rd Aug: Youth Group at The Annandale Hotel

What’s Dave G listening to?

On the weekend I went to the Sydney Powerhouse Museum to hear a talk on podcasting which was part of the Sydney Design Festival 05. Not a crazily indepth talk (a bit basic for me, but Rozie wanted to go and check it out) but it was interesting to hear a guy from ABC Radio National talking about how they are using podcasting in conjuction with their shows.

So being a little bit influenced by the talk, I’m taking advantage of‘s ability to handle rss enclosures, and I’m now bookmarking dj mixes I come across that I like or recommend. In effect this becomes my own DIY podcast.
