You had me going there for a minute. That would be a cool pedal. I hope Moog puts out something like that in the future.
i prefer this one...
I don't get the joke...where's the Buy It Now? I want one!!!!
It's a photoshop'd pic.
Well, I did figure that from the comments...but I still don't find it funny!
That would have been the perfect pedal... :NUTS
I know of some bands that could really use the effect this one offers.
I use this pedal every time I cover Genesis's "In the Cage."
I like this one:
The green does look pretty awesome (not a bad idea for a Moog, either). :^/
OK, it is funny. 4'33" is a John Cage composition that is four minutes and 33 seconds of silence... Since my external hard drive died, I keep thinking I hear that song playing, but it's just because I lost my iTunes (104 GB!- damn!). I'm not sure how funny the Cage composition was intended to be/actually is, but the MOOG pedal making fun of it with an austere face sans controls is funny, to me anyway.
Actually, it's not 4'33" of silence. It's 4'33" of whatever else is going on in the performance hall at the time. You can read more here:
The first one actually looked really intruiging.
This is correct, I was just trying to explain it simply... haven't clicked the link yet, but as I remember, you are supposed to listen for the audience reaction in terms of suprise, laughing, chatter, uncomfortableness that will inevitably occur at different points throughout the "performance." I like Cage's early prepared piano stuff, but have a hard time sincerely getting into his more experimental stuff when put side by side with all of the other music out there. Thankfully, that's not an issue he would care about, so I guess we're fine! Will check that link out now...
Your pic is a great Idea for a pedal. I mentioned something like it to Moog Music where a guitar could trigger white noise and have attack/decay.
Igor Stravinsky, when informed of Cage's 4'33", said he looked forward to hearing from that composer 'similar works of much greater length'.
