If you find yourself anywhere near Cornell University this week then you may want to pop in for their special event titled "When Machines Rock: A Celebration of Robert Moog and Electronic Music." The event, which takes place from the 5th to the 7th of March 2020 is in celebration of the opening of Moog's archive at Cornell University Library.

The university has promised that the event will feature everything from talks and workshops to an exhibition opening as well as on and off-campus performances. Best of all, all the on-campus events are not just open to the public, but also completely free, so there's no excuse for not stopping by.

The schedule for Thursday includes a panel on the Life and Legacy of Robert Moog at the Klarman Hall auditorium with panelists that include authorized Moog biographer, Albert Glinsky, and the executive director of the Robert Moog Foundation, Michelle Moog-Koussa. On Friday a presentation of Moog Stories will be held featuring Brian Kehew as well as a keynote interview with Gary Numan. Other highlights to look forward to includes the opening of the exhibit about the life and legacy of Robert Moog, a synth-building workshop, as well as lecture and concert featuring Suzanne Ciani. For the full schedule of all the events taking place, check out the Cornell University Library website. Tickets for the off-campus concerts can be booked via DSP Shows.
