Paul Vo, Asheville, NC
Member Since August 2013
Artist Statement Paul Vo is the inventor of the Vo-96 Acoustic Synthesizer, and the technology that powers the Moog Guitar and the Moog Lap Steel. All these instruments are examples of a new form of music synthesis: Acoustic Synthesis™.

Paul has worked as a design consultant, (freelance), a product developer and lab manager, (Yorkville Sound Ltd. of Canada), a director of research and development, (QSC Audio Products ), and now as a professional inventor. He is also a guitarist and composer.

“I believe that character of musical expression is strongly tied to the physical form of an instrument. A saxophone is not a theremin is not a violin – but why not? It’s not just the different timbre and range, it’s that each different shape of instrument is a different framework for emotional expression. A different feeling is suggested by the act of blowing breath into a sax than by bowing a string. A violin wants to be played like a violin, a guitar like a guitar, a sax like a sax, a flute like a flute – different physical shapes and the various methods of playing them reveal to us different categories of expression and bring us naturally into different regions of musical emotion. Musical personality is defined by both the sound and the shape of an instrument.” - Paul Vo
