An Electronic Studio Manual, for use with R.A. Moog's voltage controlled, modular synthesizing equipment.
 
 
 
N.p.: Ohio State University College of the Arts, 1968/9.  Comb-bound quarto, 234 pages. First edition of this manual for Robert Moog's modular synthesizers, compiled by the author while composing for a music drama called 'The Tale of the Silver Saucer and the Transparent  Apple,' which draws it's name from a popular Russian peasant story.  
The manual has little to do with the drama, however, and is fully dedicated to examining in detail the basics of voltage control  synthesis and the individual modules. included are more than 100 pages of diagrams of various wiring configurations for the modules.  Moog introduced his synthesizer at the AES convention in 1964, and by 1968, the year of this publication, Walter/Wendy Carlos earned three Grammy's with Switched on Bach and The Well-Tempered Synthesizer. It would be another three years before Moog's machines were marketed widely, with the introduction of the MiniMoog. Some wear to the printed green wrappers, otherwise a very good copy of this scarce early electronic music item.
