Looking for 1967-69 record of out of tune Moog

Post by visavis » Tue Apr 10, 2018 2:30 pm

A couple of years ago on Youtube there was a single from around 1967-1969 with instrumental where synthesizer was unbelievably out of tune (early oscillators needed tuning after each take). As I remember it was more of an improvisation, maybe bluesy a bit. The name of the project was obscure (not Beaver and Krause or Sounds of Tomorrow or such). Now I can't find it even after searching "Moog 1967" and "Moog 1968" as far as I could. Does anyone remember it and could give some clues of what it could have been. I believe it was a Moog, but it may be VCS 3 too as it was known for unstable tuning too.

I don't know, but have you tried https://myactivity.google.com/myactivity maybe it will go that far back, if you were logged in when watching it.

It might be "The Minotaur" by d**k Hyman. It was released as a single edited down from a much longer album version.

Thanks for the suggestion! But I don't log in very often.

Thank you! It makes me wonder. Two-three years ago the name of Richard Hyman was well known to me, but by that time I've heard just a couple of pieces from The Age of Electronicus (I bought CD with his works about a month ago). Minotaur's timbre is certainly based on the detuned oscillators and improvisatorial and was released as a single, but the synth itself is not out of tune much. The track I remember had lead so obviously out of tune, it was ridiculous. Also I think that track had non-electronic backing, I should have noticed if it was a rhythm machine. So, there's a substantial possibility that it could have been Minotaur, but I'm not really shure. Maybe I've heard it differently then, but not much time passed since that time.

If you browse using Firefox, it may still be in your History (depending on your settings). Press CTRL+H, then select "Older than six months", and put youtube in the Search box. Other browsers may offer similar tools.
