“A journey to discover the man behind the myth.”
Canadian film-makers Robert Fantinatto and Jason Amm have joined with Moog’s daughter Michelle Moog-Koussa and the Bob Moog Foundation on the documentary, which explores the synth pioneer’s life and career.
Electronic Voyager: Retracing Bob Moog’s Sonic Journey will look at Moog’s birth in New York to the establishment of the Moog Inc. home in Asheville, New Carolina, with Moog-Koussa “visiting the places and meeting the people who were a part of Moog’s history.”
The film has launched on Kickstarter but presenter and consultant Moog-Koussa – who is also a dedicated Moog archivist and historian – says production has already begun.
According to the Kickstarter campaign, the documentary team has “exclusive access” to Moog’s family photos and artifacts from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives.
It is expected for release next spring/summer.
