Waveshaper Media Launches New Kickstarter For ‘Electronic Voyager’ Moog Documentary

Waveshaper Media – creators of the modular synth documentary I Dream Of Wires – has launched a new IndieGoGo project to help fund completion of their upcoming documentary on Bob Moog.

Electronic Voyager is a feature-length documentary on the late electronic music pioneer Bob Moog (1934-2005). The documentary is told through the eyes of his daughter, Michelle Moog-Koussa, and follows her on a road trip journey across the world, retracing her father’s footsteps.

Waveshaper is making available several limited-edition items as part of the project. Here’s what they have to say about it:

We’re ever-so-close to completing Electronic Voyager, and now we’re asking for your support via this finishing funds campaign on Indiegogo, to cover some crucial post-production expenses.

But we’re not just asking you to hand over your hard-earned cash; we have some amazing PERKS on offer as incentives for you to support our project.

The perks available to backers include a DVD version of the final film; an Electronic Voyager tshirt; the ‘Hardcore Edition’ of their previous film, I Dream Of Wires; a signed Gary Numan print and more.

New Album Of Rare Moog Recordings:

As part of the campaign, they are also releasing a limited-edition vinyl LP of early Moog recordings from the 1960s. Early Moog Recordings 1964-1969 contains some of the first sounds ever created on Moog’s ‘Abominatron’, and pioneering 60’s Moog recordings:

A1. Robert Arthur Moog – The Abominatron (1964)

  1. Awesome , there’s way to many Moog clones out there claiming to be identical to the original , hopeful this documentary will help show there is only one original Moog sound and excellence in engineering and built quality . I hope there’s a Moog modular tutorial section to help new owners of the reissue .

    1. Thanks for your interest Esther. There won’t be a Moog modular tutorial or any discussion of original vs clone Moog instruments. This film explores the life and career of Bob Moog, to reveal the man behind the iconic Moog brand. There will be synthesizers, of course, but this will not be a “synth film.”

  2. We are all standing on the shoulders of giants. I’m eagerly looking forward to this video, because Bob accomplished so much at a critical time in the history of synthesis.

    It astounds me sometimes that people don’t understand his importance, or why we should support small companies like Moog instead of massive factories that churn out budget copies of his designs.
