Hi! I'm Moldover. I make music and I make musical instruments.
I released my first original album (self-titled) as Moldover in 2009. The Awesome Edition of this album came on a CD mounted onto a custom-designed circuit board that is also a musical instrument. This instrument is a simple, self-contained, analog synthesizer called a Light-Theremin.
I enjoy helping people learn how to make cool stuff, so I also created the "DIY Awesome Edition" of the album, which is essentially a kit so you can make your own Light-Theremin. This instructable will teach you how to assemble one of these kits, and you'll learn some basic soldering skills in the process. For more info about the original project and a demonstration of the Light-Theremin, watch the video above. if you'd like to order a kit, or some of the other cool things I make, please visit my webstore.
To assemble your Light Theremin kit, I recommend the following tools:
If you have not soldered before don't worry, it's easy! The basics are briefly covered here. If you want a little practice before you start building your Light Theremin, there are several good instructables that will teach you, or you can learn from the wonderful Soldering is Easy comic book.
