Description: The latest addition to our Inside Information range of prints celebrates the cult of the Minimoog and the many musicians influenced by it.
Prior to the launch of the Minimoog in 1970 synthesisers were large, modular machines designed purely for use in the studio. The Minimoog was the world’s first portable (and affordable) synthesiser. Billed as ’The Moog for the road’ - it revolutionised music, acquired a cult like following (which it still enjoys to this day) and quickly became the most popular synth of its time.
Dorothy’s cutaway print imagines a miniature world of musicians hidden inside the Minimoog. The illustration features 28 cameos from some of the world’s greatest electronic music pioneers all beavering away doing their own ’thing’. Follow the visual clues and see if you can identify the likes of Sun Ra (with his Arkestra) Keith Emerson, Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk, Brian Eno (with David Bowie and Iggy Pop in their Berlin apartment), Gary Numan (and his Tubeway Army), Giorgio Moroder (serenading Donna Summer), New Order (in the Haçienda), Daft Punk (in their 'Coachella' pyramid with Charles the dog from the Da Funk video ), the Beastie Boys (partying with the giant robot from their Intergalactic video), The Prodigy, Mr Bob Moog himself...and more.
