New documentary, 'Electric Voyager', to explore the life of Bob Moog

A new documentary, Electric Voyager, is in the works and will explore the life of pioneering electronic music engineer Bob Moog.

The film, which follows Michelle Moog-Koussa, sees her retrace the footsteps of her late father.

“Michelle, a devoted Moog archivist and historian, has dedicated her life to her father’s legacy, as founder and Executive Director of The Bob Moog Foundation,” a press release explains. “Through Michelle’s eyes, we glimpse the places and meet the people who were a part of Moog’s history, experiencing a firsthand account of Bob Moog’s incredible sonic journey from his childhood in New York, to his introduction to the world of electronic music, and through the incredible ups and downs of his company, Moog Music.

“Michelle’s voyage is an effort to reconcile the father she knew, with the world-famous music icon.”

The project is being crowdfunded by Moog fans and, on the funding page, details plans to release a vinyl companion compilation, Electronic Voyages: Early Moog Recordings 1964-1969

The eight-track record will feature 60s “composers who adopted the Moog as their primary instrument,” and includes the likes of Herbert Deutsch, Joel Chadabe and more.
