Robert Moog, the inventor of the seminal analog audio synthesizer that bears his name, is celebrated by Google today, in one of the search giant’s classic time-sucking doodles. Actually tomorrow, May 23, is his birthday, but it’s already tomorrow in Australia, Japan, and certain other Google-enabled nations.

Like Moog’s best work, it’s both very impressive and very fun. A working pitch wheel! You can record and save your performances, and share them–if they’re amazing–below.
