Robert Moog’s 78th Birthday Celebrated with Google Doodle

Moog Synthesizer Google Doodle

May 23rd, 2012 would have been the 78th Birthday of Dr. Robert Moog (pronounced MOHG), whose many achievments in electronic music include the invention of the synthesizer. Google honors him today with their very clever Moog Synthesizer Google Doodle. Not only does it look cool, but the Doodle is also interactive! You can click to play it, but if you want to make real music, use the QWERTY row of your keyboard for the white keys, and numbers for the black keys. The buttons and knobs work as well, and you can record and play back your masterpieces on the tape recorder! Read more about the fascinating life of Bob Moog at This Link or by clicking directly on today’s Doodle. Happy Birthday, Bob Moog!

Happy Birthday, Keith Haring!

Keith Haring Google Doodle

Artist Keith Haring was born on this day May 4th in 1958. Keith passed on when he was just 31 years old — so young! But his art and message live on, and today Google honors what would have been Keith’s 54th Birthday with a fun Doodle inspired by his art. If you live in the tri-state area, be sure to see the Keith Haring retrospective up now through July 8th, 2012 at the Booklyn Museum.

Mies van der Rohe Google Doodle!

Google Doodle Honoring Mies Van De Rohe

German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was born on this day, March 27th, in 1886. As a member of the Bauhaus design school, Mies (as he was called) was highly influential in shifting modern architecture away from the ornate to the simple, a design philosophy from which he popularized the phrase “Less is More.” Mies is honored by today’s Google Doodle, which depicts the SR Crown Hall in Chicago, one of his glass-and-steel designs. Happy Birthday, Mies!
