a film for a certain kind of ear
17 November 2007 | by (san jose) – See all my reviews

The film is very true to the nature of Moog. If you were the kind of person to be tweaking analog synth, the part of you the draws connections between objects is usually more than a little different.

My old music school kept the 2nd synth he ever made. I'd heard a dozen 3rd hand stories from the keyboard and composition faculty. The Moog in this film fits perfectly with those stories, like a Shaker box. One jazz master and the chef composer would tell about him as a way to bring certain kinds of students 'in'. Seemingly disconnected or random is part of the deal, the other reviewers see it as a flaw, but it's a central theme.

This is not a documentary about the history of the Moog synth. It's a song about Moog. An excellent song.
