  1. Ah…Waveshaper Media who did a Kickstarter in 2016 for a Moog documentary.
    They collected €91k and still no documentary 7 years later.

    1. Hi, Electronic Voyager is still alive and in post-production. We are in the middle of negotiating music and film rights which can take a long time. I want this film released more than anyone but some things are beyond our control. The important thing is we’ve collected hundreds of hours of interviews with some of the most important people who were part of the Moog story, some of whom are no longer with us.
