This Google Doodle appeared this morning when I opened up my Mac.  I use Safari as browser and thought I would have a go at seeing what this GOOGLE logo is about.  Usually they are fun and funky.  This is all that and much, much more!
Reading comments on other sites it would appear a lot of people can't get it to work for one reason or another.

For the record I am making a post out of this as a form of FEEDBACK.  This  DOODLE works! 

It is a synthesizer (and the doodle has been created to celebrate the man, Bob Moog, an engineer, who invented the Moog synthesizer.  (Today he would have been 78 years old.)

Using the mouse for positioning, the white keys sound, the black keys sound; all the oscillator knobs do things; the on/off toggle switch works, the roller volume works, and it is possible to make a short (very) recording by clicking on the red button on the reel-to-reel recorder on the right. The dial lights up and the pause button also works!

What a tricky bit of technology!  Full marks to the Google people!  (Who writes this stuff?!!)
