From Waveshaper Media, the Toronto-based production company behind the pivotal electronic music documentary I Dream Of Wires, seen widely on Netflix, comes Electronic Voyager. Electronic Voyager is a new feature-length documentary on electronic music pioneer Bob Moog ? his story recounted through the eyes of his daughter, Michelle Moog-Koussa. In Electronic Voyager, we follow Michelle on an emotional road trip journey across North America and Europe, retracing her father?s groundbreaking footsteps. Michelle?s voyage is an effort to reconcile the father she knew, with the world-famous icon. Michelle?s father is the late Dr. Robert Arthur Moog (1934 - 2005), inventor of the iconic Moog synthesizer. Moog?s archetypal synthesizers defined electronic music in popular culture, and revolutionized the sound of music across genres. The ?Moog? brand became, and remains, the ?Kleenex? of synthesizers, and a key part of that branding is Bob Moog himself; iconic photos of a young Bob, looking confident, determined, and surrounded by his own inventions, loom large in contemporary Moog Music marketing materials, and at Moogfest, one of North America?s biggest music festivals, dedicated to Bob?s legacy.



Growing up, Michelle had an inkling of her father?s fame, and of the importance of his innovative work, but had no idea of the depth and magnitude of his influence; he was, first and foremost, dad. When Bob passed away in 2005 after a brief fight with cancer, the curtains were pulled back on Michelle?s dad, and at the age of 37, Michelle was introduced to Bob Moog. Thousands of people came forward at that time with testimonies about how Bob?s instruments had inspired them, leaving their lives transformed. Discovering the monumental significance of her father?s life and accomplishments was the turning point for Michelle, and she?s gone on to dedicate her life?s work to preserving and celebrating Bob Moog?s legacy, as founder and Executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation.



Electronic Voyager takes the shape of a road-trip journey, where the viewer is looking over Michelle?s shoulder as she travels to the places where Moog history happened, and meets the people whose lives were changed by Bob and his inventions, including legendary musicians like Rick Wakeman, Gary Numan, and Jean-Michel Jarre. Michelle hopes to uncover clues about who her father really was, and how his work not only impacted the world, but had consequences for her and her family. Every person that Michelle meets, who knew Bob, offers another piece of the puzzle that Michelle is driven to complete. For herself, and for the world, Michelle wants to reveal a full picture of who Bob Moog really was, the man behind the iconic Moog brand.



Electronic Voyager not only recounts the fascinating story of the most pivotal figure in electronic music?s history, but also sheds light on the personal and financial struggles endured by one of America?s true great innovators; it?s a universal story highlighting the difficult relationship between creativity/innovation and business/commerce.
