There's a saying about there being a book in everyone, and in Bob Moogs case, he gets a whole movie. From the production team that brought you Frontier Life (2003), director Hans Fjellestad and producer Ryan Page have just inked a deal with Plexifilm for distribution of their up-coming movie, "MOOG": a feature length documentary film that explores the revolutionary world of electronic musical instrument pioneer Robert Moog, scheduled to be released this summer. The Moog documentary tracks more than the instrument, it takes a look at Bob himself, his philosophy on life, creativity and spirituality. "I'm also very focused on the raft of stories in the man's head," explains Fjellestad. "This is very much an 'in Bob's own words' piece." The film will include interviews with faithful Moog users as well as on location shots in London, NYC, Tokyo and Moog's hometown of Ashville, NC. Last week the filmmakers wrapped a successful shoot with Bob Moog and DJ Spooky in the acclaimed DJ's NYS studio. Images can be downloaded at

Artists such as Stereolab, The Neptunes, Devo, Meat Beat Manifesto, Tortoise, DJ Spooky, Bernie Worrell & Bootsey Collins, Money Mark, Luke Vibert & Jean-Jacques Perrey, 33, The Album Leaf, Pete Devriese, Bostich, Charlie Clouser, Baiyon, Suzanne Ciani, Electric Skychurch and others are contributing original music produced on Moog instruments for the film's soundtrack. Moog has not only made prodigious contributions to modern music and culture, but he has become a character within an unfolding "American maverick inventor" mythology. Still active at the Moog Music factory in Asheville, North Carolina, Moog continues to shape musical culture with some of the most inspiring instruments ever created.
