Moog

Hans Fjellestad’s loving documentary about Robert Moog, (pronounced moge) the maverick inventor of the celebrated modern synthesizer, is a crash course in electronic musical instruments and their usage by musicians such as Stereolab, DJ Logic, and Money Mark. Moog gregariously shares his candid philosophies about sound, music and technology in monologue explanations that resonate with conversations he has with fellow inventors and musicians. You’ll come away from the movie with a newfound regard for the potential of transistors and resistors to inculcate musical information. Special features include director’s video notes, deleted scenes, interviews and additional performances by Stereolab, The Album Leaf, and Tino Corp. Aspect ratio is 1.78:1 Letterbox, with sound presented in Dolby Digital. (Movie – Four Stars, DVD features – Four Stars) Not Rated, 70 mins. (Plexifilm)
