The film of the same name chronicles the life of Moog synthesizer creator Bob Moog, revered as a pioneer in the evolution of electronic music.
"The musicians who play our instruments show us what our instruments are capable of," Moog says. "This CD covers an amazing range of music -- music of the sort that has done so much to shape our contemporary culture. To me, this CD is a tribute to all the musicians who have used Moog instruments to express their musical visions."
The documentary was directed by Hans Fjellestad and shot in Asheville, N.C., London, New York, San Francisco, London and Tokyo. Among the artists appearing in the film include Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, DJ Spooky and Mix Master Mike.
