Moog (2004) Trailer -- Human-Computer Interface

How come that when you have to work you discover the most amazing things to distract you? Is it Murphy's Law? Is it cause your hormones are changed and things easily appear to be fascinating?
I stumbled upon the movie trailer of a documentary on the greatest synthesizer of all times, the Moog. The movie came out in 2004, and Dr. Robert Arthur Moog, the ingenious inventor of the Moog synthesizer unfortunately died a year after-- one more reason to watch the movie...
I especially enjoyed when Bob Moog in the trailer enthusiastically signifies the metaphysical human-computer interaction between the musician's mind and the moog circuit board: "not physical contact, not sumthin' like they have it under their arm... but" and the following gesture is just gorgeous. Check it out-- great guy, great synthesizer.
