Bob Moog was one of the most important figures in electronic music. As the creator of the Moog synthesizer, followed by a line of instruments that bore his name, he changed the way that music is made and listened to.
Waveshaper Media, the producers of the modular synth documentary, I Dream of Wires, are putting together a new film about Moog’s life.
Electronic Voyager is a story told by Moog’s daughter, Michelle Moog-Koussa. Through the musicians who used Moog’s instruments to create their art, she gets closer to the story of her father and his visionary work.
Participating artists include Jean-Michel Jarre and Rick Wakeman; the latter opening up his Norfolk shed to reveal an obsession for MiniMoogs and a sense of humanity that is unexpected for a caped keyboard wizard.
Waveshaper are running a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo. With graphic design by Brett Wickens (Ceramic Hello, Spoons) and rarities including signed prints of Gary Numan, this project will be of interest to anyone who loves electronic music.
The campaign continues until the end of May 2019.
