DREAM THEATER keyboardist Jordan Rudess and Richard Lainhart, synthesist extraordinaire, will be performing live online on Sunday, May 23, at 1 PM Eastern Daylight Savings Time, to honor American maverick inventor Bob Moog on his 70th birthday.
50 years ago, Moog began developing electronic instruments that altered the course of modern music for all time and have since become an integral part of our musical culture. As part of the online All-Moog Deep Space Excursion, Rudess and Lainhart will be using old and new Moog instruments exclusively, including a vintage Mini-Moog, a modern Moog Voyager Mini-Moog, Arturia's Moog Modular V software, and a Moog Etherwave Theremin, in a classic electronic space improvisation streaming live on the Internet from O-Town Live.

Bandwidth limitations restrict the broadcast to 100 listeners, and log-in to the server will be first-come, first-served, starting at about 12 noon EDT Sunday, May 23.
