Waveshaper Media has announced a new documentary about the life and work of American engineer and synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Arthur Moog. Electronic Voyager follows Moog’s daughter, Michelle Moog-Kassa, as she travels across North America and Europe to learn about the influence and impact that her father’s instruments had on people’s lives. It also features interviews with the late Bernie Worrell of Parliament-Funkadelic, Gary Numan, Yes’ Rick Wakeman, Jean-Michel Jarre, Morton Subotnick, and more. Watch a trailer below.
