In this basic soldering workshop, Moldover will take you through the steps to build your own Light-Theremin CD case – http://www.instructables.com/id/Moldovers-Light-Theremin-CD-DIY-version/. Even if you’ve never soldered before, this workshop will give you the confidence in two hours. If you do have experience you’ll learn how to solder better, and walk away with a fun and unique instrument, plus a copy of Moldover’s album. After the workshop Moldover will give a presentation on the design of The Light-Theremin CD Case, along with his other circuit-board artworks. No previous experience with electronics or soldering is necessary. Participants do not have to bring their own equipment, as soldering stations and Light Theremin kits will be provided. This is an all ages, hands-on workshop.
About the Instructor
Moldover grew up in Rockville Maryland, patterning his earliest music after the rock, pop, and metal that spoke to him through radio, television, and his elder brother’s record collection. He wrote songs, played in bands, and taught himself the recording arts with a basement full of second hand instruments and a four track tape machine. In 1998 he moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music where he abandoned pop songwriting and shifted his focus to classical composition, jazz arranging, and electronic music production. Moldover graduated summa cum laude from Berklee and moved to New York City to work as a freelance musician. Intent on merging his love of playing in ensembles with his electronic compositions, he wove his way through a series of live-electronic bands, eventually becoming disillusioned with New York’s exclusive and socially complex live music scene. At the same time he began seeing his favorite electronic music artists play live, but found that their stage performances lacked the creative fire of their recorded works. Seeing an opportunity, he ventured out as a solo artist, relocated to San Francisco, and set about creating performances that would bridge the gap between traditional musicianship and modern electronic music culture.
