Hans Fjellestad / USA 2003 / 70mins / DVD
(Thu 17th / 8pm / £6/5)
Bristol premiere of this unmissable documentary about ROBERT MOOG, inventor of the modern synthesiser. Permanently changing the face of music, the Moog synthesizer went from a kitsch late-60s craze to an indispensable ingredient in Prog rock and beyond, laying the foundations of modern day electronic music in the process.
In Hans Fjellestad's film Moog himself traces the history of his invention and meets those influenced by his work. And there's a serious cult of Moog fetishists - look forward to appearances and (Moog) soundtrack from KEITH EMERSON, LUKE VIBERT, STEREOLAB, MEAT BEAT MANIFESTO, TORTOISE and more!
There will be a Q&A session with the Executive Producer of the film after the screening.
Some of Bristol's most respected musicians (Adrian Utley, Jim Barr, Tony Orrell and a SPECIAL GUEST) form an impromptu synthesiser troupe specially for the Kavalier Klub. There will be much Moog action plus rare outings for some seriously vintage electronic artifacts. Prepare for an almighty bout of improv electronique complete with visual stimulation. http://www.zu33.com/moog/
