lecture: Playable Packaging and Custom Musical Interface Design
Inventing and building new kinds of instruments
In this presentation, Moldover will discuss the motivation behind his bespoke instruments and controllers. From augmented guitars, to playable electronic album packaging, to multi-player “jamboxes”, he’ll detail the artistic challenges that necessitated their design and show how he takes unconventional ideas from home-made prototypes to polished products. Finally, he’ll discuss the idea of “controllerism” as an artistic ethos. Where did it come from, and where will it go in the future?
