The Bob Moog Foundation has announced an exhibit spotlighting famed keyboardist Patrick Moraz, to be shared at ProgStock 2023. The Story of Moraz: The Life of a Music Genius explores over 70 years of Moraz’s musical journey, and will be available exclusively to festival ticket holders. The exhibit features photos from Moraz’s personal collection coupled with an extensive personal narrative, as well as his 1974 Minimoog and 2004 Moog Voyager synthesizers, which Moraz will also use in concert during the performance. Both synthesizers are on loan to the exhibit from synthesizer collector Lee Keeley.
Patrick Moraz is a virtuoso keyboardist renowned for his prodigious career with Mainhorse, Refugee, Yes, The Moody Blues, and Moraz-Bruford, as well as for scoring 37 films, releasing a multitude of solo albums, and working with Bob Moog in the mid-1970s on the Polymoog and Micromoog synthesizers. In 1976, Keyboardmagazine awarded his solo album I (aka The Story of I) Best Keyboard Album of the Year. In 2019, he performed at Moogmentum, the grand opening celebration of the Moogseum.
“The Bob Moog Foundation is honored to be shining a light on Patrick’s immense talents and his long, storied career through The Story of Moraz exhibit,” noted Michelle Moog-Koussa, Executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation. “His life and work are a rich tapestry of prodigiousness, creativity, prolificness, and collaboration. He is beloved by fans the world over, and he shared a very special working relationship and friendship with Bob Moog. We are proud to bring his story alive at ProgStock.”
