The principle behind Moog's prototype is the use of 'Voltage-Controlled Electronic Music Modules,' (i.e. the use of controlled generators & filters). This is fully explained in the paper. At rear of this issue is an advertisement by the RA Moog Co announcing the availability of electronic instrument for the composition & performance of contemporary music. 'What I knew about electronic music at the end of'63 ... there were some people who had something called the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center.... Herb was a music instructor at Hofstra ...he just flipped when he heard what my breadboards could do. By the end of that session and the one that followed, together we had come up with the basics of a modular analog synthesizer. Mind you, neither of us had any idea where this was leading.' --Bob Moog.
