Kickstarter campaign to launch later in April 2024

Independent publisher Bjooks have announced the upcoming launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund their latest release, The Minimoog Book

As you may have guessed from the name, the new title will document the history of Moog’s iconic synthesizer, from the early prototypes and the very first Model D, through the Minimoog Voyager to the present-day reissues. It will open with a foreword from Rush frontman Geddy Lee, and present over a decade’s worth of research carried out by esteemed jounalist and music historian JoE Silva. 

"When I started digging into the history of the Minimoog back in 2010, I quickly realised how universal it was. I was continuously stumbling upon artist after artist or another famous piece of music that used it. It was pretty clear right away how important the instrument became once it came out.” - JoE Silva

Readers can expect exclusive interviews and features with legendary musicians including Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, Chick Corea, Tony Visconti (David Bowie), George Duke, Anne Dudley (Art of Noise), Bernie Worrell, Devo, Kraftwerk, Air, J Dilla, Gary Numan, and many others — as well as some of today’s most respected songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, such as Greg Kurstin (Adele), Yumiko Ohno (Buffalo Daughter), Mac DeMarco and more.

The book will also feature detailed photography along with schematics, historical promotional materials, engineering interviews, illustrated sound patches, and over 70 artist features. Bjooks say that the release will serve as the perfect coffee table book and keepsake for lovers of synthesizers, music history, illustration and photography. 

“The Minimoog Book is our most vital project yet, documenting and delving deep into the iconic electronic instrument that has shaped generations of musicians and songs. We’re deeply privileged to bring this beautiful book to Kickstarter for our loyal readers and enthusiasts everywhere. Your support in making this labour of love a reality will mean the world to our small team.” - Kim Bjørn, founder of Bjooks


The Minimoog Book will be available to pre-order on Kickstarter later in April 2024. Early supporters will gain access to special perks and insider information never-before-seen photos, behind-the-scenes content, a special edition of the book and more.
