Greetings all,

It's been little more than two days since the campaign ended.  I've spent most of that time picking up the loose pieces of this crazy puzzle, and recuperating from the long-weekend's worth of events.  This morning I packed up a car to get the heck out of town and find some much needed rest.  Writing to you now is the last thing I will do before I step away from this computer, leaving behind three months of Four Track, crowd-funding, INSANITY.

Some big pledges happened outside of the Kickstarter system in the last few days, bringing the unofficial grand total to $45,361. For a guy who's bank account is often close to empty, that number seems pretty surreal.  Thankfully I have the reality-check of a carefully planned budget, and a wonderful team of people ready to help me channel all that wealth into inspiring creations.  As a supporter of my work and of this campaign, you are part of that team.  GO TEAM!

It's hard to describe my feelings about this experience.  Saying I'm grateful for all the help I've received and tremendously excited about the future of this project would be a gross understatement.  I've only had time to personally thank a tiny fraction of you, but I will continue to reach out and show my appreciation as fully and frequently as I can.  I am both crying and smiling (I kid you not) as I write this: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LITERALLY MAKING MY DREAMS COME TRUE.

Love,
Moldover

      It's not very often so many skills and attributes come together in one package, in one person. It's good to take a step back sometimes and reflect. all the emotion you have now will be channeled into more creativity and more inspiration for your creations and music. Hopefully this exposure will help build your future which I am really looking forward to seeing grow and develop. You Sir are a musician of the future who we have the privilege of kick-starting now. Best of luck.

      just watched the r.x.cringely 'the lost interview' with steve jobs (at amazon prime for free..) cringely dates back to the homebrew computer club days in cupertino, he's not a media snark. don't read about jobs third-hand, you should experience his mind.

      also today listened to The Moldau by Smetana on the radio (KDFC sanfrancisco) and you should know that piece if you don't already..

      Hey Moldover - you've come a long way since I met you in NYC a few years back! Do you recall? I liked a set you did somewhere in the East Village, and we talked about collaborating on an interactive installation for my indie CD release party. Never happened, but I've followed your progress since, and I'm happy to be a small supporter of this project. Your vision and personal self-disclosure make a compelling package, and your tech is completely off the hook. I wish you all the best and hope our paths cross again someday soon. Cheers!

      So incredibly honored to support you and help you make your dreams come true :D
      I hope your time decompressing in nature resonates with the same grounded inspiration you have given to me, and breathes new life and wholistic integration into the music tech maker community at large that adores what you do.
