      RICK WAKEMAN & MOOG DOCUMENTARY
      --------------------------------------------

      Gary Davis, from The Artist Shop, writes:

      There is a DVD coming out soon that will be of great interest to fans
      who are fascinated by the more technical aspects of Rick Wakeman's
      music -- "Moog: A Documentary Film" by Hans Fjellestad.

      Robert Moog has been inventing and building electronic musical
      instruments for nearly half a century. MOOG, the film, takes us inside
      the mind of this legendary figure as he shares his ideas about
      creativity, design, interactivity, and spirituality. To this day,
      Moog continues to shape musical culture with some of the most
      inspiring instruments ever created. MOOG features interviews and
      performances by Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, Bernie Worrell, Charlie
      Clouser, Gershon Kingsley, DJ Spooky, Stereolab and many more. DVD
      extras include director's video notes, deleted scenes, interviews,
      additional performances and Arturia Minimoog V software.

      The DVD is listed at the Artist Shop in the "coming soon" section:

      new DVD! For more information, visit the latest Artist Shop

      A NEW BABY!
      --------------------------------------------

      Cengiz Varlik, founder of the Turkish YES Network in Istanbul, is
      delighted to announce that on May 15th, at 7:53 a.m. local time, he
      and his lovely wife Melda welcomed into this world their first child,
      a beautiful baby daughter, named Irem. Irem, at birth, weighed 4090
      grams, and was 50 cm in length. Both mother and daughter are doing
      well. The name, Irem, means "a garden that is planted as if it is
      heaven"; or; "the land of happy people in myths and legends" -- more
      simply, "the garden of Eden." All our love and congratulations,
      Cengiz and Melda! May every joy be yours!
