Synopsis

Album Description
In 1970, Kingsley formed the pioneering First Moog Quartet, a four-synthesizer ensemble that attempted to prove that the electronic music could be played 'live' on stage, even in classical musical venues like Carnegie Hall (where the group gave the first live performance of synthesized music ever on January 30, 1970). Kingsley said, 'People were kind of confused about the concert, I understand, because it was just so new.' In order to get the Moog Quartet going, Kingsley had to convince Robert Moog to build the three other synthesizers he needed. Then hire & train four musicians to play them. Not an easy task. But Kingsley's First Moog Quartet (originally released in 1970 on Audio Fidelity) is the astonishing result. Original artwork. Features 8 tracks & 8-page booklet. Dagored. 2003.
