The producers of I Dream Of Wires and the Bob Moog Foundation are behind Electronic Voyager, a new Bob Moog documentary that's in the works.
The film is set to follow Michelle Moog-Koussa as she retraces the steps of her father, iconic synth innovator Bob Moog. It also features exclusive access to unseen family photos, rare historical artifacts from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives and interviews with some musical greats.
Electronic Voyager is the subject of a Kickstarter project and backers can choose from a whole host of packages if they want to get involved. These include signed posters, t-shirts and a copy of the film, which it's hoped will ship in November of this year.
The Kickstarter project is live now until 25 May 2016 and has a goal of $125000.
