Widely dismissed as a passing novelty in its formative years, New York inventor Robert Moog's electronic synthesizer eventually evolved into the most revolutionary instrument of the past century. While the sonic burblings of the original Moog are too often associated with 60's/70's kitsch, musician/documentarian Hans Fjellestad ably frames his film/soundtrack around a more contemporary mix of styles that better showcase the instrument's enduring, nearly boundless potential. Fjellestad's own "Abominatron" intersperses samples of Moog himself discussing the instrument, while Stereolab and Meat Beat Manifesto offer the synth a compelling spotlight within their own band contexts and Bernie Worrell and Bootsy Collins give it some overdue funk/r&b props on "When Bernie Speaks." The bonus disc of non-film cuts haphazardly documents the instrument's historical contributions to rock/pop forms that range from prog (ELP, Yes) to new wave (Devo, Gary Numan, New Order) and mainstream kitsch (They Might Be Giants cover of the Disney Electrical Parade's "Baroque Hoedown") even as it shortchanges Moogphiles of the classical and soundtrack contributions of Wendy Carlos and the bold, inventive excursions of veteran jazz pianist Dick Hyman. --Jerry McCulley
