Another remarkable musical doodle, on Might 23, 2012, Google commemorated the 78 th birthday of Robert Moog, who released a brand-new universe of noises into musicdom with his innovation of the electronic analog Moog Synthesizer, affecting a generation of music.

Joey Hurst, software application engineer at Google, composes, “Similar to the musical devices Bob Moog produced, this doodle was manufactured from a variety of smaller sized parts to form a distinct instrument. When experienced with Google Chrome, noise is created natively utilizing the Web Audio API– a doodle initially (for other internet browsers the Flash plugin is utilized). This doodle likewise benefits from JavaScript, Closure libraries, CSS3, and tools like Google Web Font Styles, the Google+ API, the Google URL Shortener, and App Engine.”
