Nope, it's "The Synthesizer, Featuring Dick Hyman at The Moog", from
Command (ABC Records) 1973.

I noticed that some of the sounds, were like the laser blast effects in
Star Wars, which I found surprising as I remember watching a "Making of..."
back in about 1980 that showed them hitting a guide wire for a radio
antenna to get that same sound.

This must be what I was thinking of, I thought I remembered the Moog having
something to do with the PDP11.
