Moldover is on tour and made a stop in Denver to perform a show and give a workshop at The Church nightclub in Denver last night. A big thanks to Marc Wei of Ableton Colorado for behind-the-scenes work to pull this workshop together in Denver.
Moldover’s workshop offered a nice blend of topics including controllerism, controller building, real-time effect processing on vocals, Ableton, workflow, creativity, personal productivity, song writing, and touring. I highly recommend you attend one if you get the chance. Checkout his tour page for a calendar.
Throughout the workshop he performed some songs using a custom Guitar (Robocaster) with buttons, joystick, and accelerometers; the MOJO customer controller; and a new prototype of a vocal controller called the MOJITO that is clamped to the mic stand.
Here is a close-up shot of the MOJO which has buttons, knobs, switches, sliders and touch strips.
It is built around the notion of 4 tracks of real-time controllerism and playback control (inspired by 4 track tape deck work). Each type of controller is assigned a specific type of role. For example touch strips control tonal modulations.
During and after the workshop Moldover took the time to answer questions.
