In this interactive demonstration, Moldover will present his latest music and instrument creations, including The Robocaster Guitar, the prototype MC1 Voice-Controller, and the Light-Theremin CD packaging from his debut album.About the Artist:
"A musician at heart, inventor born of curiosity, and innovator by necessity, I believe the world calls him the 'Godfather of Controllerism' for damned good reasons".
-John Tackett, Crowd Wire
Moldover's collected work is deep, diverse, and nearly impossible to summarize, but its essence shines clearly when you see the artist on stage delivering emotional and authentic performances with hybrid instruments of his own design. Explore his creations further and you'll discover a cultural icon who invents new formats for interactive album artwork, cultivates collaboration by building elaborate jamboxes, and has inspired an entire generation of free-culture music-makers by openly sharing his methods and his madness.

This Saturday June 27th at 18h join us at Foulab in retro life with a view of BBS The Documentary. The series in eight episodes explores the world of the BBS all the way to it's replacement by the internet. As an example of technological autonomy BBSs were crafted, operated, and moderated by the community for the community. They faced repression from the state and capital and prevailed in the pursuit of fun and profit. The practice of BBBs is in stark contrast with today's commercial social media monopolies who sell users' data on the market and provide it on request to the state.
