We are excited to announce our newest series of events where you will get the chance to meet your mentor, learn more about Pyramind Online, and get a free workshop all from the comfort of your own home! Our first Pyramind Online Elite Session will feature current Pyramind mentor and the “Godfather of Controllerism”, Moldover.
Join us on Thursday, April 9th for this very special session where he will talk about the major evolutions in his own performance rig including building custom hardware, hacking Live with Max for Live, and finding a balance between authentic expression and pre-planned moments. He will detail the consulting work he does for other artists, helping them choose, configure, and sometimes build performance tools for shows of all kinds. Not only that but by RSVPing and attending, Moldover will be giving away some of his personal Ableton Live racks, designed for simple and intuitive control of expressive effects for FREE!
Whether you are into DJing, live performance, or music production, there will be something in this for you. Be sure to reserve your spot by clicking HERE.

…What Bach was to the keyboard and Hendrix was to the guitar, Moldover is to the controller. Growing up, Matt 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.
Matt is also not only a mentor on Pyramind’s Mentorship Network and through the programs offered through Pyramind Online, but as of this summer, he will be making his debut in our ground campus classrooms teaching our coveted Ableton Night Program.
We can’t wait to meet each and every one of you!
