Studio Legend Walter Sear Passes at 79

Read the rest at ProSound News:

Born in 1930, Sear started out as a tuba player, performing for six years in the pit at Radio City Music Hall during the 1950s, a time when he also sold self-designed tubas built and imported from Europe. In the following decade, he teamed up with synthesizer pioneer Robert Moog, becoming a business partner and sales agent for the inventor. Sear, himself a synthesizer composer and performer, was involved in a number of soundtracks, from Oscar-winning best picture Midnight Cowboy to Jim Henson’s The Cube to National Lampoon’s Disco Beaver from Outer Space.
