Watch the trailer for Electronic Voyager.

The life of legendary synth architect and engineer, Dr. Robert Moog, is the subject of a new film from Waveshaper Media. Electronic Voyager follows Moog's daughter, Michelle, as she travels the states and abroad to piece together her late father's tale through the stories of his peers. Gershon Kingsely, Gary Numan, Dick Hyman, and the late Bernie Worrell, are amongst the dozens slated to appear in the film.

Still in post-production, an Indiegogo campaign has been launched to crowdfund Electronic Voyager's completion, eying 2020 for a big and little screen debut. The campaign offers donors a vinyl pressing of an accompanying compilation album, comprising early Moog tests and recordings, including a how-to of an early Moog machine called "The Abominatron" (hear it below.)
