VJ Loops AV mix featuring Kyle Lyons and DJ Electrobios from Kyle Lyons on Vimeo.
+ Non-VJ stuff you do: I manage DJ Pascal Kleiman. A very talented DJ who was born without arms and spins with his feet. He has overcome all obstacles and Pascal is a huge inspiration to me and my work.
+ Who you’d love to work with in the near future:
Visual wise:
I would love to work with OVT Visuals; these guys were my initial inspiration to become a VJ. The work they did at rave parties back in Chicago in 1995 were the leading cause of my visual madness.
I would enjoy working along side AntiVJ label, Crustea, Legoman, Easyweb and any other visual pioneers who are pushing the boundaries of visual creativity with video mapping and interactive installations.
It’s also been a lifelong dream of mine to travel to Asia and Australia. I think working with any Asian or Australian visual/motion graphics artists would be an amazing opportunity! Hint Hint
Audio wise:
I really enjoy all types of trance music and would love to get booked on a tour with a big act like Infected Mushroom.

+ Best gig: My best event so far has to be the ‘Great Stuff In Tokyo’ party who invited me to VJ as well as using my ‘On The March’ illustration for the event flyer and poster. If there is such a thing as a perfect/seamless event then this was most defiantly it for me.

+ Promo - upcoming gigs, releases, etc:
my video collection represented at getty images >>

Gonna Get Ya, bootleg of House of Nonsense and the Gonna get ya vocal from dubassy on Vimeo.
+ Type of work you do: the majority of my time is spent on content creation, so this allows me to vj with 100percent my own created visuals. i love to show people at events the stuff that has come alive from my mind. currently my vjing work would be just the visuals, but i am working towards an audio visual project to take what i do to the next level.
i have performed as a vj for the past 7 years, originally i was based in london and played at most of london’s nightclubs at some point or other, including, a residency over two years at ministry of sound, plus clubs like fabric, cargo 93 feet east and the vibe bar. festivals included the big chill, glastonbury and homelands.
i moved to lie in the south of france and started working more around europe at clubs and festivals, and now for the last 6 months have been in spain. european highlights include, name festival in lille, kazantip in the ukraine, marsatac in marseille, urban artforms in austria. i also spent a month in india playing a elevate club in delhi and went to miami earlier this year to play some events at the winter music conference, including the beatport remix hotel event and miambient.
+ Best gig: best gig would either be opus vj event in marseille, or urban artforms in austria, just down to the sheer number of screens around the huge venues, visually eye popping.
+ Most random thing that ever happened at a gig: a lighting technician who became so messed up at the end of a clubnight that he started pissing in the lighting/sound booth, pretty close to my equipment!….
+ Non-VJ stuff you do: when im not doing something related to visuals, i’ll probably be on the beach, in the sea, or eating some nice food on a sunlit barcelona terrace with a fresh cervessa beer…or just sleeping..
+ Who you’d love to work with in the near future: in the future i hope to work more on more music videos, following on from this one ealrier in the year for maurro picotto, shot on location in ibiza -
also just expand my horizons into new areas. create new exciting visuals..hopefully can constantly evolve as an artist.

Top 20 VJs of 2008 - 4youreye (Austria)

4youreye was established in the early 1990s (by Gerald Herlbauer) and is based on the Rave, Ambient and Club culture of that decade. 4youreye have, since their creation over 10 years ago, not only made a name for themselves in their own country but can also look back on many successful international performances. The 2 man Crew stand for fasthard cuts and unconventional screen sequences taking images that we believe to know > from old viewing habits, out of their original context to then generate them into a completely new context. That, what Music tries its best to express, is portrayed here in always changing picture collages.

Oblong g-speak térbeli operációs rendszer

" Az Oblong g-speak a Különvélemény filmből ismert vizualizációs rendszer. Mivel biztosra veszem, hogy ma már mindenki látta filmet, ezért csak azokat a fontosabb részeket érdemes kiemelni, melyek a technológiai alapot nyújtják.
3D kezelőfelület: Bár egyértelműnek vesszük, a 3D térben való navigáció nem könnyű falat. A nagyon pontos navigációhoz nem túl használható, de a kényelmes, gyors használat is fontos jellemző.
Gesztusok felismerése és azok műveletekké konvertálása
Kollaboratív használat, többen egyszerre használhatják a rendszert
Információtömegben való navigáció, bár ez egyelőre inkább parasztvakítás mint valóban használható funkció, de a későbbiekben nagy potenciál lehet benne. A 3D-s képrendezés kell a fenének… "

Mégegyszer Processing 1.0

" A Processing kreatív vizuális fejlesztőrendszer 162 béta verziója talán az egyik leghosszabb volt, bár ez egyáltalán nem riasztotta el a fejlesztőket és vizuális művészeket a használatától. A béta verziókat diákok, egyetemek, videoklipek, kiállítások, hirdetések és reklámok, grafikusok és videósok használták évek óta munkáikhoz - természetes volt a “béta” státusz, mely nem a kiforratlan állapotról, mint inkább a megcélzott funkcionalitásról mesélt.
Jó hír: a Processing elérte a hivatalos 1.0 verziót. Ben Fry és Casey Reas közös ötletéből született és teljesen ingyenes, open-source szoftver, mely a vizualizációt és a művészetet kapcsolja össze a Java programozással - hogy mennyire egyszerű vagy komplex eredmények születnek, az már csak a fejlesztők fantáziáján múlik, mert a környezet szinte mindenre képes.
Az utóbbi hetek munkája felgyorsult fejlesztéseket és újdonságokat hozott, közöttük:
a teljes képernyős mód komoly fejlődésen esett keresztül, korábban sokaknak okozott ez fejfájást
bitang jó OpenGL mód a GLGraphics library-n keresztül, ami kötelező letöltés mindenkinek, aki csak egy kicsit is komolyan veszi a munkáját
OpenGL anti-aliasing
a P2D render engine újra használható
Minim audio library a hanghoz
a library-k a szkeccsekkel együtt tárolódnak, mely megkönnyíti a hordozhatóságot és a megosztást
loadShape() helyettesíti a Candy-t vektor adatok importjához
az alap fejlesztőrendszer esetében a Tools menü bővíthető
egy rakás bugfix és korábbi beígért funkciók végre működnek
És persze a fejlesztés itt sem áll meg, hiszen az 1.0 sem tökéletes: fura OpenGL villogás, Mac-es Java bug-ok (Mac és Java - nem barátok) és egyéb apróságok keserítik még az életünket. A videó támogatáson is bőven van mit fejleszteni. Érdemes lenne lecserélni a QuickTime Java alapú videó library-t, ami nem konzisztens az összes platformon és helyette egy generikus, mindenhol működőt bevezetni helyette.
Az 1.0 verzió egy újabb korszak kezdetét mutatja. A Processing rengeteg díjban és elismerésben részesült eddig is, most pedig készen áll rá, hogy meghódítsa a világot. Ha a videó a XXI. század nagy dobása, akkor a Processing ennek egyik alappillére lehet - az interaktív, generatív vizuáloktól a DIY és ipari vizualizációs feladatokon keresztül és VJ/videós körökben az ötletektől, grafikáktól és mozgóképektől az utómunkáig és effektekig egyre többször fogunk találkozni vele. Szép új világ - tényleg.
További infók, letöltés, példák, kódrészletek, közösség és minden amit tudni szeretnél róla a Processing weboldalon."

.lov. hívta fel a figyelmemet a tegnapi bejegyzés kapcsán Memo egyik érdekes project-ére.

De előszőr nézzük meg, Memo mit mond magáról:

Memo: " My name is Memo (Mehmet) Akten and I'm a visual artist, musician and mad scientist based in London, UK.
On this site you can find examples of my commercial work and other audio/visual experiments. A balanced blend of interactive audio/visual demos & installations, motion graphics, visual effects, live visuals, tutorials, code snippets and other random toys for your viewing, hearing and/or playing pleasure.
While a lot of my earlier commercial work is generally pre-rendered video created in AfterEffects, Cinema 4D, Motion, Flash etc; lately I have moved more into (and my biggest passion is) interactive generative / programmatic audio & visuals - and that's mostly what I focus on now - Human-Computer Interactions, Computer Vision, (& Java), openFrameworks ( & C++), Quartz Composer, VDMX, ActionScript 3.0 and related subjects. "

Gold dust demo from Memo Akten on Vimeo.
Testing a camera controlled golddust particle/interaction system for upcoming music video.
Programmed in C++ with openFrameworks/openCV/openGL running realtime at 1080 HD, 30fps with 20K particles, optical flow, contour analysis, fluid dynamics, FBOs and VBOs.
All particle interaction is controlled entirely by motion on camera.
Most of the particles and fine detail is lost in the video compression, you can see much more in the original quicktime in the bottom right.

És most egy másik project:

My Secret Heart - Excerpts from Memo Akten on Vimeo.
My Secret Heart is a music and film installation & performance commissioned by Streetwise Opera with music composed by Mira Calix. Working with video artists Flat-e, we created visuals for the 48 minute performance, as well as versions for an installation and short film.
The visuals were created primarily with custom software written with C++/openFrameworks, with some Quartz Composer elements, rendered AfterEffects sequences and live action footage. The custom C++ app is audio-reactive and user-interactive, allowing the visuals to be 'performed' live with full control over the behaviour of the virtual inhabitants of the cylindrical aquarium-like rig.

Oli Sorenson
Born in L.A., Oli Sorenson AKA VJ Anyone started performing at Sona, Tiga’s club in Montreal back in 1997. Soon after moving to London in 1999, he got his big international break going on the road with Talvin Singh’s Untouched tour. He since never stopped travelling from Berlin to Tokyo, Miami to Dubai, providing visuals for the likes of Layo and Bushwacka, Danny Tenaglia, Riccardo Villalobos and many more. Recently Oli’s been working more closely with specific musicians again, as when providing visuals for Meat Katie’s AV Vibrator album, or Sander Kleinenberg’s 2007 world tour.
Countless brands have commissioned him to perform at sponsored events, including Ray Ban, Intel, Motorola, Bacardi and more. On a more personal level, he has produced numerous AV performances and film remixes, thus getting a lot of attention at top media festivals like NokiaTrends, Optronica and Soundframe.
Also an accomplished writer, Oli wrote numerous VJ related articles in DJ Mag, essays in dedicated VJ books for Paul Spinrad, D-Fuse and Xarene Eskandar, as well as a six part series on the international audiovisual scene for Roland. Over the years, Oli took part in promoting visual events like Vectors at AKA Bar, AVIT UK, the VJ Cult screenings at the ICA, VJ workshops at 01 in Soho, and now The AV Social.
Ed Shaw
Ed Shaw AKA VJ Movement has been creating and showcasing his work for the past eight years in the UK, at such venues as AIR, The Gallery, Ministry of Sound, The Arches and The Paper Club.

Other recent international dates included USA, Greece, Slovenia, Hungary & Germany. aka Diane Karner and Roland Lindner quickly shot to prominence in 2002, from a makeshift club in Austria. Audiences were captivated by their use of video cameras, to directly grab movie clips from their laptop monitors, strait onto the main venue screens. Since then, their success as visual performers and designers has endured, thanks to a solid background as architects and product designers. They value above all the development of a personal and distinctive style, which can be equally flexible and diverse.
Besides vjing in clubs and venues of all types, they have also performed at arena-size events like Mapping festival (CH), Urban Artforms (AT) and Spring festival (AT) alongside international artists like Princess Superstar, Goldie, DJ Marky, Kraak & Smaak and many others.


Az eMotion ( link, link ) fejlesztője is kiadott egy frissítést:

" eMotion is a tool for creating interactive motions of objects for live visual performances. Electronic motion seems often artificial, synthetic... well... in fact it does not convey any emotions. By defining new rules to create movements, eMotion is a new kind of software made for visual live animations. As it is based on real world physics law, all motions seems natural, full of emphasis. It allows to manipulate different kind of objects like still image, videos, text, drawing. Targeted mainly for theatre/dance performances, it can be used in broader situations.

Main concepts : eMotion is based on objects (like particles, text, drawing strokes, quartz compositions). The creation of motion in the program is laid on a physical model, aka physical forces that are applied to the objects. The forces can be created by using “movement brushes”, or by defining a relation between a controller and a set of objects (for example a wiimote and some text). The objects are organized in layers, and each object can have his own sets of physical rules. The evolution of the physical rules along the time can be recorded in the script window. A script is the only way to record/save your animations.

To summarize:

physically based animation rules
multi representation particle system
layered behaviour
incredibly smooth
support multi inputs interactions including Wiimote + nunchuk, sudden motion sensor, wacom tablet, midi, audio analysis, and by using Open Sound Control (osc) it can be extended virtually to any kind of controller.
link any physical parameters to the inputs
all is LIVE
It can be used for interactive installations, live performance, visual arts, strange subtitling, and so much more. imagination is your only bound. It can be seen as a "live-photoshop", and it want to be a simple but powerful solution to construct and explore the world that new technologies bring to live performances.
Written in cocoa, exclusively for Mac (10.5/intel), eMotion is still in alpha stage, some functionalities are not fully implemented, and the user interface needs a lot of work. "

Girls: VJmina

A francia lány 2004-ben kezdte el az utazást a techno világában. Azóta a legjobb DJ-kel dolgozott együtt.

" Mina started her video journey in techno music in 2004. Live video mixes with the best DJs and party activists: she invites you in her world, made of machines, angels, magic and wires, using music as a spell leading you to electronic dreams. Wired and girly when she plays, beat turns in bits in her hands, waves change into pixels and music becomes light. Mina shows you the future that is already here: any kind of images, pictures, or videos, can and will be used for your eyes! Cradled since an early age by the science fiction litterature, Mina is impassioned by machines. Fascinated by cyber cultures, she started studying about computers, which opened the doors of a budding universe : the multi-media creation. That’s how she started an atypical VJ path into an environment she knew: the electronic scene. Since 2004, she plays with famous DJs and bands like The Nubians ; she also worked with performer Juliette Dragon. Developing a sharp and rhythmical style, she uses her collection of samples and elaborates scenarios to illustrate her vision of the music. Often playful and colourful, her cybernetic mixes can get acid on a rougher mix. During the show you can discover the whole panel of emotions that her creation generates live, like pictures painted under our eyes, the message evolutes along the night. She was seen at the Rex Club, Nouveau Casino and Bataclan, amongst others in Paris, she also played in Spain (Rachdingue) and Switzerland (Lake Parade)… From festivals to private parties, her visual scenarios always renew. Assiduous to Drum’n’Bass parties, she was involved in the the live video mix for Elisa Do Brasil’s DVD “So Massive”. She now presents, with the photographer Elo B, a VJ collection for the Follow the Bass concept. Work in progress improving everyday, her urban and happy set emphasizes the DJ & MC performance and the photo exhibition. "

A pár nappal ezelött megismert holland művész, Low North pár érdekes munkáját nézzük ma meg.

Voix Égales (excerpt) from Low North on Vimeo.

Marionette from Low North on Vimeo.
" Jorge Isaac plays "Marionette" at the Amsterdam Muziekgebouw, 31 August 2008
Music by Roderik de Man
Video images by Marcel Wierckx
Visisonor Media Productions:
In "Über das Marionetten Theater" (On the Puppet Theatre, 1810) Heinrich von Kleist, through his protagonist Herr C., discourses on the infinite grace of inanimate objects. The Puppet Theater was not written for marionettes to play, but as a description of their function and value. He compares the capacities of live performers and marionettes according to romantic aesthetics.
Kleist argues that objects, unlike people, need not behave affectedly. He says the marionette, unfettered by the need to touch the ground (since it's strumming to the tune of strings pulled from the top), is far more graceful than the human dancer. Only a god or possibly an animal such as a bear, Herr C. proclaims, could equal the grace of inanimate matter, whereas humans are clumsy, weighed down by consciousness. In his argumentation for the superiority of the marionette Kleist shows a belief in the cognitive and creative superiority of the unconscious over the conscious, of spontaneity and intuition over reason.
Kleist's enthusiasm for the marionette theatre was shared by many yet the weight of his words and the endless possibilities he saw in the puppet world were not be recognized until long after his death, adding justification to the notion that Kleist was a man born before his time.
The music consists of an instrumental part for sopranino, tenor and contra-bass recorder (Paetzold) and an electronic part on CD.
Part I for Sopranino is a musical representation of the sometimes grotesque at other times playful character of the marionette, part II a lyrical reflection on 'the grace of inanimate matter' for tenor and in part III the Paetzold (contrabass recorder) translates controlled and uncontrolled movements in a chaotic fantasy. The cd part was made of samples taken from the instruments, played by Jorge Isaac .
Marionette was commissioned by the Visionor Foundation and is dedicated to Jorge Isaac . "

CoGe: Open Source, Semi-Modular Mac VJ Software

Jó hír a CoGe rajongóknak és a szimpatizánsoknak, hogy a net legnagyobb, digitális zenei- és látványmédiával foglalkozó lapja, a createdigitalmotion is felfigyelt rá és cikket szentelt neki, amit most egy az egyben idemásolok:

CoGe 0.85b - Quick Start Guide from luma beamerz on Vimeo.

" Apple’s visual goodies and modular patching tool Quartz Composer provide some building blocks for live visuals. But to actually connect these into something you can use live requires some work. Quartonian by Roger Bolton was an early effort to do just that, but while it’s a fascinating application, the interface and underlying patches are more than a little idiosyncratic.

CoGe, an open-source, semi-modular visual app, takes a more conventional approach. The interface focuses on clip triggering and effects and mixing modules. It now even uses the playback module from CDMo contributor vade’s own v002 app. I’m not personally crazy about the interface, but I do like that it’s open source, and if you’re a fan of Quartz Composer it certainly seems worth a look. It’s yet another tool Mac users can add to their visual arsenal.

Quick start video above; after the jump, a video of the new features in the 0.93b build released at the end of last month.

Full disclosure: I’m enjoying my shiny, new, absurdly cheap PC laptop, so I’ll be busy rocking out on vvvv and some cross-platform / OpenGL-based tools and not getting so into the Mac-only stuff. But then, I also upgraded the MacBook to Leopard… hmmm… "

Pico Pocket Projector

Hát igen, a világ két irányba halad: az óriás kivetítők és a micro projectorok irányába. Ha nem is VJ álom, de immár valóság a Pico Pocket Projector-a. Prezentációhoz, TV, DVD nézésére megfelelő kissebb lakásokban, együttműködik az iPhone-nal és videó iPod-okkal. Házibuliba, barátoknak megmutatni cuccot, vagy csak gyakorolni kiváló lehet. Ki kellene próbálni!
Addig egy cikk róla a The New York Times-ból:

" Shazam! A Projector Is Shrunk

Come on, admit it: is there anything more awesome than miniaturization?
The Walkman put a stereo system in your pocket and changed the game forever. A modern digital watch has the computing power of a roomful of 1950s computer gear. And people are watching TV shows these days on iPods about the size of a business card... "

Time Machine - Virtual Journey / Időgép - virtuális utazás

Most nem egy programról, hanem a zene ( zajok ) ritmusára generált képekről lesz szó, visszafelé utazva az időben.

Az első alkotó egy mai fiú: Low North.
You pixel-per-pixel mapping of an audio track:

Black Noise White Silence from Low North on Vimeo.

Low Northnak ez a munkája tiszteletadás Lillian Schwartz előtt, akinek egy 1970-es fílmje következik.
Low North pay homage to Lillian Schwartz. Here’s one of her seminal films - Pixillation (1970):

Ez a 38 évvel ezelötti darab az első volt a digitális fílmek közül, amit műalkotásként elfogadtak. Ennek eredményeként Lillian Schwartz a Bell Laboratories tanácsadója és kutatója lett.
This nearly 30 years ago, Pixillation was one of the first digital films to be shown as a work of art.
It was the result of groundbreaking work by Lillian Schwartz as a consultant and researcher in visual and colour perception at Bell Laboratories.

As she says in The Computer Artists’ Handbook:
“A computer can have (be!) an unlimited supply of brushes, colors, textures, shadings, and rules of perspective and three-dimensional geometry. It can be used to design a work of art or to control a kinetic sculpture.”
But Ken Knowlton, her Bell Labs colleague and author of the BEF LIX (Bell Flix) animation programme, spoke of a troubling dichotomy. Whereas artists - human animators - were “intuitive… sensitive and vulnerable”, programmers were “constricted… cold and inscrutable”.

Néhány évvel korábban John Whitney:

Like Lillian Schwartz, John Whitney has immense stature in the history of the digital arts. He’s sometimes credited (see the Wiki) as one of the fathers of computer animation. And his vision was simple:
“Above all, I want to demonstrate that electronic music and electronic colour-in-action combine to make an inseparable whole that is much greater than the parts.”
In the 1980s, Whitney was responsible for the invention of an AV “synthesizer for the future”, the Whitney-Reed RDTD. But earlier in his career he worked with Saul Bass on title sequence for Vertigo (1958).

Az elektrónika, a digitalizáció, a számítógép elötti időből való Oskar Fischinger Optikai költeméne, 1940-ből. Meglepő, hogy a látvány, a gondolkodás mennyire mai.
Imagine Whitney’s vision pre-electronic. Pre-computers. When you watch the minutely synchopated animation of Fantasia (1940), for example, you don’t imagine a computer in sight. You might, however, when you watch Oskar Fischinger’s Optical Poem - because it has that level of detail and timing:

An Optical Poem (1938) from plasticsheep on Vimeo.
Fischinger rajzfilmkészítőként Disneynél dolgozott. Faszenet és papírt használt a korai munkáiban. Közben játszott színes folyadékokkal és egy "Wax Slicing Machine"-nal ( hogy ez mi lehet?:) ), és feltalálta a Lumigraphot (fényorgonát) 1950-ben.
As the date will tell you, this animation involved no computer. Fischinger worked for Disney as an animator on Fantasia. He’d used charcoal-on-paper for his early works. He’d played with coloured liquids and a “Wax Slicing Machine” in between, and invented the Lumigraph (a colour organ) in 1950.

A dadaista Hans Richter 1920-ban készítette fílmjét. Itt igazában nem beszélhetünk audió vezérelt látványról, hiszen még csak némafílm létezett, de a koncepció tettenérhető. ( A zenét valaki később kreálta hozzá, ez a stílusán is hallatszik. )
Some of the most visionary animators and filmmakers of the pre-digital era laboured with incredible precision to synchronize visuals with music. There’s a separate strand of film history - one that competed against narrative cinema, the talkie, but appeared to have lost.
You’ll see origins of this battle in the early 1920s, with films by the Dadaists and particularly Hans Richter.
