Participants should arrive with basic Ableton Live experience, and a strong interest in creating electronic music. This workshop focuses on real-time musical demonstrations of universally applicable concepts. Anyone from a complete beginner to a professional producer can learn plenty from Moldover’s collected experience. Participants are encouraged to take notes and ask questions during the workshop, applying the methods to their own music in their own studios as soon as possible.
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.
MOLDOVER takes you deep inside his arsenal of DIY MIDI controllers – and his totally unique Ableton Live 9 performance setup – to show you his unique vision of the present and future of technology and music!

Hailing from the bass-drenched streets of East Vancouver, Vincent Parker has created his own instantly recognizable style. His live blissed-out psych/power/bass/rhythms are steeped in the omnipresent psychedelic mist of the Pacific Northwest.
Parker thrives in live performance and is well known to west-coast audiences for his live shows, featuring sweat, singing, stage moves, dancing, crowd interaction and the occasional lost shirt. In short – Parker brings it live.
Parker uses a streamlined live-pa setup consisting of a laptop running FL Studio, multiple Korg Kaoss Pads, an Akai MPD-32 controller and his voice. His released material consists solely of live recordings.
