But first some information about Moozak …
The history of Moozak – Events & Label
3 Viennese music enthusiasts who were dissatisfied with the event landscape in their home city began to make plans for Moozak in the Spring of 2007. In September of the same year, the first Klub Moozak event took off in Vienna, to be continued on a monthly basis.
Starting in 2008, a new recording label was called into being to supplement this series of events (Moozak with its sub-label Kazoom). The publication MOOZAK #002 „Kabelbrand – Sounds from the Max Brand Synthesizer“ has received special attention. This includes 2 pieces written by the since-forgotten composer Max Brand, for whom Bob Moog built that first Moog Synthesizer in 1965.
The Bob Moog Foundation (USA), which supported the release, published a detailed article about the history of the Max-Brand-Synthesizer (“Uncovering the Moogtonium”).
