Peter Gabriel Era Photos of Pioneering Synthesist Featured
Asheville, NC - March 01,2016...The Bob Moog Foundation announces an exclusive donation incentive featuring synthesizer pioneer Larry Fast. Beginning today, supporters who make a $100 donation or more to the Foundation will receive two signed and numbered photos of Fast in concert with Peter Gabriel in 1977, as well as a copy of his second Synergy album, Sequencer. All donations support the Foundation’s educational and historic preservation initiatives, and can be made through its donation portal: www.bit.ly/donatebmf.
The photos were generously donated by concert photographer Brad Owen. Only 50 sets of the signed and numbered photos exist.
The two photos, exclusive to the Bob Moog Foundation, capture Fast surrounded by a bay of synthesizers and other equipment, including a host of Moog and Oberheim instruments. The vintage photos evoke a period feel, bathed in purple and red hues from the stage lighting.
“It is an honor to have counted Bob Moog as a long-time friend,” recounts Fast. “ I used his instruments extensively throughout my musical career. Their design and sound served as an inspiration for my work.”
An American keyboard player, composer, producer, and electronic pioneer, Larry Fast has worked with a wide range of artists, including Peter Gabriel, Nektar, and Tony Levin. As a solo artist, he records under the name Synergy, releasing nine highly acclaimed albums between 1975 and 1987, beginning with the groundbreaking Electronic Realizations for Rock Orchestra.
“I am proud to lend support to the Bob Moog Foundation and their important work at the intersection of science and music,” Fast adds. “It is my sincere pleasure to contribute through this unique offering to enable them continue to inspire people through Bob’s legacy.”
