A modular Moog treat

Written by David Shapton

We all love those modular Moogs, but it's not often you can get your hands on one. Here's the next best thing: two famous film composers playing these wonderful instruments.

Hans Zimmer is about as prolific and as profoundly talented a film music composer as it’s possible to be. While he’s probably most famous for his orchestral scores, he’s also a devoted electronic music fan.

Clint Mansell is also a supremely clever composer with dozens of film credits.

Here they are talking about a gigantic Moog modular synthesiser. Come on, admit it: we all want one of these, propped up against our living room wall!

Thanks to Moog themselves for this video.
