“A journey to discover the man behind the myth…” Producer behind 2014’s I Dream Of Wires plans documentary on synth icon Bob Moog.
Musician and film producer Jason Amm, who was responsible for 2014’s I Dream Of Wires documentary on modular synths, has announced his next film project. Electronic Voyager will tell the story of synth pioneer Bob Moog, following his daughter Michelle Moog-Koussa as she retraces his sonic journey.
Amm’s Waveshaper Media is seeking $125,000 CAD of investment via Kickstarter in order to go ahead with the project, with the crowd funding drive open until May 25th.
Confirmed participants already include Moog’s collaborator Herb Deutsch, artists such as Gary Numan, Moby and Portishead’s Adrian Utley, plus a roster of music tech royalty including Dave Smith, Tom Oberheim and Roger Linn.
