This documentary is a true asset to mankind. Robert Moog was a great man. One of my heros, and to me he is an absolute legend. This documentary goes through the times, places and artists when the synthesizer was invented, and what took place, also little interesting things from Moog, such as he said he could "feel" what's going on inside electronic equipment(or something along those lines). Of course covers the man who invented the synthesizer, who is a beautiful person IMHO. You can feel it in his voice alone (I can anyway) :)
I am posting this video under fair use for education and review purposes and not profiting from it in any way. I feel the value of historical review, awareness of this man's wonderful accomplishments, and education of who was behind the synthesizer outweighs any copyright laws. Also I doubt the film maker would mind... :)
Others may not share the same enthusiasm for the synthesizer as I do. It is one of my favorite things in existence, and Moog is absolutely one of my most respected and favorite people in the history of the known universe. :)
Much much respect for Hans Fjellestad for doing this wonderful work before Moog passed away... I don't know Hans but I already love the guy... :]

Moog was THE MAN.
MUCH LOVE to every world's inventor of the synthesizer :)
- he was not the inventor of synthesizer. He was just the man who produced and diffused it in the world.
the synth was created by paolo Ketoff in Rome 2 years before. Moog took the ketoff prototype, modified it and started to produce it on industrial way
- i think he has in mind that current changes inside the parts and components, but not while going through the "traces".
- His view on metaphysics late in life made this doc surprising. Cool wife.
- yeah, its just a very poor compression setting, very lossy
- I wonder if there were any special plants in there? ;P
- I look at him, with a PCB in his hands at 13:00 and wonder if he takes more credit than is due to him for engineering. The "traces" on the board change the current to change as is goes from one part of the board to another ? WTF, the function of a PCB track is to take a signal from one point to another and specifically without changing it in any way. There will be a phase shift, some inductance and some capacitive coupling but that's only of concern with radio frequency circuits.
- This guy is uber-nerd.
- HEY, RADIOHEAD!: Your band members need to watch this if you haven't already.........
- This is youtube at it's best. "You can play on the keyboard, you can play on the knobs, you can play on the touch surface." This is where "genius" and "ahead of his time" is literal and not just words. Thank you.
- Moog is to EDM what Les Paul is to Rock
- thank you Mr. Moog.
- Don't be fooled by the 480p badge on this video. It's about 144p, what a complete pain in the square wave ass.
- Hey guys! I'm a non English Native speaker...Can anyone help me to understand what he says from 29.30 to 29.35 ??? I've listened to it like a hundred times but I really don't understand! If you could write me down those three-four words I'd be sooo grateful!
- He probably loved it, he was always into pushing the envelope and experimenting..He was a scientist remember, he wasn't blinkered or locked into a feeling that theres only one 'right' way for something to sound. He produced the Moog for people to play around with and go crazy, he probably didn't believe you could get a bad sound out of it, just something 'different'.
- Robert Moog was and continues to be one of my greatest inspirations. What a totally all around cool guy. Thank you Robert Moog for all of your incredible work.
- i really wonder what mr.moog thinks about electronic music today
- Awesome film! What's the music we hear from 6:10 on, especially around 6:30-6:40. Sounds so familiar but i can't find it. Anyone knows?
- i love bob moog. back in the early 90's i needed my moog taurus pedals repaired and the only pre internet info i could find for anything moog was big briar music in NC. i called and the voice on the other end answered, "bob moog". i stammered and said "as in THE bob moog"? he said yes and i began to ask him about my pedals. he got very angry and shortly ended the call saying he couldn't help. this was before the resurrection of moog music. oh well. it's not every day you can talk to god, lol
- they're not supposed to sound the same how is that cliche? he didnt even say anything negative about them.
- unreal,the true godfather of the synth.
- yes, yes he is!!
- Dr. Robert Moog was a genius and most certainly an inventor having numerous patents, but he was _not_ the inventor of the music synthesizer. Robert Moog and Donald Buchla created modules, and then complete instruments, based on concepts described in a paper by Harald Bode (and synthesizers had existed even before that). Moog, being a brilliant electrical engineer, came up with circuits that realized those ideas far better than anyone else's.
- Is the film maker the same Hans Fjellestad who was at the San Diego State University electronic music lab in the late 1980's? I taught there and was a graduate teaching aid with another student of that name.
