Gershon Kingsley

Gershon Kingsley composed many hit recordings on the Moog synthesizer in the very early days of electronic music. His mega hit “Popcorn” in the early 1970s led to a series of pioneering electronic recordings by Gershon, including “God is a Moog” and “Belly Buttons,” which featured a Fairlight synth. He also composed and arranged Jewish-themed music on the synthesizer for albums such as “Gates of Prayer.” While he composed on several early and innovative electronic instruments including the Buchla and Oberheim, his music seemed to gain a special energy when he used the Moog.
