Help Bring Bob Moog's Story to Life: Exclusive MiniMoog Custom Tie & Scarf April 25, 2016 00:00
Help bring the Bob Moog story to life! ELECTRONIC VOYAGER follows Michelle Moog-Koussa as she retraces the footsteps of her late father, iconic synthesizer pioneer Bob Moog.
As crazy fans of electronic music and Moog, we here at Cyberoptix couldn't possibly be more proud and excited to partner with Robert Fantinatto and Jason Amm, the Director/Producer team behind the acclaimed modular synthesizer documentary, "I Dream Of Wires," with a new documentary feature, "Electronic Voyager."
In association with The Bob Moog Foundation, Robert and Jason aim to create a definitive and personal documentary about the life of iconic synthesizer pioneer, Bob Moog (1934 - 2005). Through the eyes of Moog's own daughter, Michelle Moog-Koussa - also a dedicated Moog archivist and historian - they'll be giving viewers an insight into the man behind the iconic Moog brand.
We’ve lined up an incredible selection of unique rewards for your contribution to Electronic Voyager’s Kickstarter campaign, including two KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE designs: A necktie and scarf that will only ever be released to help fund this documentary project. They'll never be for sale in stores or on our website, ever!

"Cyberoptix Tie Lab's designs have been sourced from a range of unique, often techy, and sometimes even geeky, subjects. It was their amazing Roland TR-808 and Oscillator Waveform designs that caught our eye, and so we were thrilled when they agreed to create a special Model D tie for our Kickstarter. We couldn't be more happy with how stunning Cyberoptix's generous perk contributions have turned out, and hope you'll take advantage of this exclusive opportunity to show some Minimoog love at your next boardroom meeting, wedding, or night on the town!"

The name MOOG evokes a revolutionary new sound and pinpoints an iconic era in the evolution of music. A true American innovator, Dr. Robert Moog is arguably the most important figure in the history of electronic music, with his invention of the now legendary Moog synthesizer.
Electronic Voyager takes us on a sonic journey into the often unpredictable life and stunning brilliance of Bob Moog, a man who ‘fell backwards on a banana peel’ into the music instrument business, as well as the psychedelic world of the 1960s music scene. Bob unwittingly revolutionized the face of music, and birthed an enduring industry.
Electronic Voyager is being produced in association with The Bob Moog Foundation, with a portion of the film's proceeds going to the foundation. "The Bob Moog Foundation, a small 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, carries Bob's pioneering legacy forward to future generations with a mission, to ignite creativity at the intersection of music, science, history and innovation. We provide hands-on opportunities for children and adults to explore the science of sound through Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool and we are dedicated to the preservation of a vast array of historic materials in the Bob Moog Foundation Archives. These two endeavours will eventually converge in a future interactive museum, or Moogseum, online and in Asheville, NC."
