The team behind modular synth documentary I Dream Of Wires (now on Netflix) have announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund an exciting new feature-length documentary aiming to create a definitive and personal documentary about the life of iconic synthesizer pioneer, Bob Moog. Electronic Voyager, in association with the Bob Moog Foundation (http://moogfoundation.org), will give viewers an insight into the man behind the iconic Moog brand through the eyes of Moog's own daughter, Michelle Moog-Koussa — also a dedicated Moog archivist and historian.
The recent, tragic passing of Bob Moog's close friend and important collaborator, Keith Emerson — perhaps the most iconic Moog keyboardist — was just another reminder of how important it is to document Bob Moog's crucial chapter in the history of electronic music, NOW. We are turning to Kickstarter — a direct link to Bob Moog's friends, admirers and fans — to help us get to work on this important documentary as soon as possible.
