About The Artist

P_Wojnarski_-_Moldover_-_Mojo

”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

Historically there are only a handful of artists who have pushed the limits both with their music and with the instruments of its creation.  What Bach was to the keyboard, what Hendrix was to the guitar, this is what Moldover is to the controller.  Disillusioned with “press play DJs”, fans from all walks are drawn to Moldover shows, eager to witness electronic music’s return to virtuosity, improvisation, and emotional authenticity.  Dig deeper into Moldover’s work and you’ll uncover a subversive cultural icon who has redefined physical media with his Instrument-Albums, revolutionized musical collaboration with his custom Jamboxes, and is inspiring an entire generation of forward thinking music-makers by openly sharing his methods and madness.

Some cool creations of Barb and Michelle’s

Michelle’s Hamstrometer is in Raspberry Pi Geek!

This past summer, I read online that the breed of hamsters I own runs more than any other breed: “an equivalent of four human marathons each night on average.” With hopes of figuring out what exactly the “hamster equivalent” of a marathon is, I did a study on my hamster’s gait. And finally, with hopes of discovering whether or not there was any truth behind The Internet’s claims, I built a small Raspberry Pi-powered pedometer and stuck it on my hamsters’ wheel.

This month, the lucky portion of you who can read German can check out a 5-page spread on my DIY hamster experiment in the latest issue of Raspberry Pi Geek!

HOW AWESOME.

Before coming to CRASH Space, I lived and worked in Berlin, which makes having my work in a German magazine all the more personal and exciting for me. (Not to mention, many of our CRASH members are native German speakers!)

If you want, you can buy the latest issue here. You can also see the (less cool ’cause it’s not in a real paper magazine) version of the article here.
