Hailed as “Godfather of Controllerism” Moldover is a phenomenal musician that combines DIY instrument building and DJ techniques into a solid live performance. Singing, playing guitar, and chopping up beats on his controller, Moldover’s presence reaches beyond one-man-band to rock star.
Controllerism aspires for the virtuosic techniques and showmanship of the DJ within laptop based music. Because many commercial controllers are so generic and cheaply made, Controllerists tend to extensively modify existing products or even building their own from scratch. Moldover has become the face of this movement through his highly motivated pursuit in making exciting new music that reaches to a wider audience. He embodies the notion of how instrument design has become an integral process in the practice of today’s electronic music. http://moldover.com
