Who is Wendy Carlos?

Wendy Carlos at the Moog

For the month of March our private facebook group, the Cosmic Tape Music Club, will be focusing our collective research on the Moog master, Wendy Carlos.

Please join us in the group to help us in our mission, to learn and share, and be part of the conversation that will become this month's podcast episode!*

*This year we are recording our Cosmic Conversations for a podcast! We will be featuring your personal music and all the research we do together. You can listen wherever you get your podcasts...and may even hear your own music on the episode! 

Who is Wendy Carlos?

Perhaps best known for translating Bach to the language of the Moog Synthesizer in "Switched on Bach," Wendy Carlos is much more than this platinum selling album. 

After meeting in 1964, Carlos worked hand-in-hand with Bob Moog to make the Moog Modular synthesizer more friendly to the composer. Most notably, ensuring the Moog would have the first custom velocity and depth sensitive keyboard.

Learn more about their collaboration in the video above! And once you are caught up, feel free to share other articles, videos or album links in the private group

Recommended Listening:
As Wendy has retained complete control of her catalog, you will not find her music on any streaming sites. We recommend exploring her website, which she meticulously maintains. There you will find every release on CD - her preferred format.
