Sobre o autor (2015)

Thom Holmes is a music historian and composer. He studied composition with Paul Epstein in Philadelphia,

published the magazine Recordings of Experimental Music (1979–85), and worked with John Cage. He is a

current member of Composers Inside Electronics, an electronic music performing ensemble dedicated to

the realization of works by David Tudor. Holmes produces a personal blog, Noise and Notations, and writes

the blog Moog: A History in Recordings for the Bob Moog Foundation. He curates an archive of vintage

electronic music recordings and maintains The Sound of Moog, possibly the only complete collection of every

commercial recording made using the Moog Modular Synthesizer (1964–70).
