BIO:

Known worldwide as “The Godfather of Controllerism”, Moldover is a new breed of music icon. Combining the charisma of a rock star, the mad genius of a basement inventor, and the radical inclusiveness of the DIY internet generation, Moldover is “a paradigm shift in live electronic stage acts” (New City Music). Witness his balls-to-the-wall live show at a club, experience one of his interactive jamboxes at a festival, or pick up and play the “Light-Theremin” packaging of his debut album and understand the new musical archetype that is Moldover.
