The legend, engineer and synth pioneer Bob Moog is getting a documentary made about him. Titled Electronic Voyager, the film will follow his daughter Michelle Moog-Kassa on travels around Europe and North America to learn about her father’s influence on music and those who make it.
Electronic Voyager interviews luminaries like Dick Hyman, Jean-Michel Jarre, Yes’ Rick Wakeman, the late Bernie Worrell of Parliament-Funkadelic and Gary Numan. The film is pretty much done and in post-production. It is slated for release in 2020, but they need some cash to push it over the edge, launching an Indiegogo campaign.
The film was developed by Waveshaper Media with the Bob Moog Foundation.
As a reward for donating, some will receive an album Electronic Voyages: Early Moog Recordings 1964-1969, which has rare 1960s Moog tracks from a variety of artists. The companion album is expected to ship in July and comes white or black vinyl. There will be 1,000 black vinyls pressed compared to 300 white vinyls. See the full tracklist below.
