We pick the brains of Cinema.AV on his beautiful video synth work

Par Hayley Cantor




These days AV artists are hiding out all over the place, this time curiosity didn’t kill the cat, as I stumbled upon the work of Cinema.AV on Instagram. it’s amazing where a hashtag can take you… #videosynth. I was keen to find out how someone so visually analog ends up that way, and how they manage in an ever expanding digital world (at the time of writing more so than ever).

1.Tell us about your first ever live gig? When was it and how did it go?

For years, I used to play a kind of ambient, soundscape style of music, and for live performance, I would put whatever found vhs tape behind me for visuals. Often without a screen. It often just turned into lighting for my performance, instead of clearcut visuals. 

Fast-forward to a couple years later, in summer 2015, where I started buying jvc video mixers, archer and vidicraft boxes. It was here where I took it upon myself to do visuals for a show I had booked. Sadly, I didn’t realize, the projector couldn’t handle the distorted signals I was throwing at it. Luckily though, someone at the last moment, let me borrow theirs. It was total godsend. The result was this hyper-distorted cross between national geographic videotapes. It worked for the more abstract, psychedelia I had booked for the evening,

Later down the line, I found the need for time base correctors in live performance, and mixers equipped with such. To evenly blend, rather an abruptly with one of those RCA Y splitter cables turned on end. Which is actually the same as the classic Klomp dirty mixer. It was all stuff I got for free, or nearly no money. Never top of the line. Always the most difficult, least practical solutions. But the result was always unique to the moment, to the performance; endlessly fleeting. 

2.We discovered your work on Instagram. How do you usually connect with the AV community online? Does social media play a big role for you?

Strangely, yeah. I hardly ever go out locally, unless of course I’m playing a show. So beyond that setting, you’ll never find me in the wild. Even before this quarantine action, I was a total homebody. Staying in whenever possible to work on art and infinitely explore the machines. So having access to social media platforms is actually key to the whole system. I can actively gauge what pieces people actually like, what ideas stick and in turn, get shared with a larger audience. 

Its those posts that snowball into bigger and better gigs. As the recognition on a global scale is significantly more gratifying than just the local efforts I receive so often. In fact, for the better part of 2019, I was very busy with live video work. Having nearly no time off, I accepted this as a lifestyle, rather than just hobby. And in the social media zone, I’ve been able to publicly beta-test things like the Erogenous Tones Structure module, Phil Baljeu’s custom vector graphics system and as of late Andrei Jay’s latest raspberry pi video synth and feedback algorithms as hardware devices. The curiosity the results generated have in turn, sold modules and made the manufactures money to sustain their efforts.   

…having access to social media platforms is actually key to the whole system. I can actively gauge what pieces people actually like, what ideas stick and in turn, get shared with a larger audience. 

To be fair though, I’m not sure how much of this actually real. If it’s all made up, or the reactions are fabricated. It’s a fine silver-lining we’re all walking along. One day, a post could generate hundreds of interactions, while the next day, nothing. I think alot of that could actually be the option for folks to drift between realities, between the physical and the cyberspace. It’s in this cyberspace, that I do often connect with other artists, say for example my bud Konopka and has online video painting series. To watch him create something entirely from scratch, in real time, thousands of miles away is a true head-spin if you think about it. But not even 5 years ago would have been possible.

3. It’s fascinating to how analog and digital worlds inspire AV artists. What’s your take on the two and how do you find working with analog systems for live visuals?

Truly. When I first got started, it was all analog, all found devices. Though in time, I’ve found the whole LZX modular zone, which started analog and now has drifted into this wild digital hardware dimension that has opened up all kinds doors. The obvious attraction to the large analog modular is the physicality and pure intuitive nature of the whole thing. As in a live setting, there is nothing more fun and unpredictable than a hand-wired mess of cables and devices to create this ever-fleeting dialogue, never again to be replicated. For ambient, for house, for techno and literally everything in between, there’s this infinite body that just works, and often never crashes or fails. 

If anything, it’s always the digital component that freezes or fails first. I’ve done shows with computer artists that for some reason or another, who just can’t make it work that particular night.

If anything, it’s always the digital component that freezes or fails first. I’ve done shows with computer artists that for some reason or another, who just can’t make it work that particular night. So just step in and end up taking over the evening with my system. However, I’ve had my fair share of venues tell me their systems are HDMI only. So learned to convert the analog composite outputs of the modular to the HDMI with aid of things like Ambery converters and scalers, Extron scalers, and even the silly Blackmagic shuttle, that has it’s own share of issues. It wasn’t until last summer that I realized the Roland V4-EX had a very effective means of conversion and scaling to HDMI, VGA, and back down again. The result was a total game-changer. So I sold my other mixers, and devices to scale up to HDMI and hadn’t looked back. This meant I could seamlessly work with digital projection systems and streaming processes. And from the get-go, it’s been used in every performance effort since. It’s even let me collaborate with both digital and analog artists alike. To fade and key between all manner of artists and ideas. 

So little things like that make the whole system go, which leads me into the question…

4.What’s your basic setup when do performance live AV shows? (If you have one)

I am constantly pushing myself as an artist. So every year or so, I’ll experience this major creative shift around winter time, when my job at the photo lab temporarily shutters for winter break on campus. It is is then where I have about a month to chill and regroup my mind. This generally means some new gear enters the studio, and in turn the dirty warehouses they get thrown into for live work. 

All photos courtesy of Evan Henry.

In 2019, I saw my modular system grow from a single 6U, two row case that could fly on any airline, to a larger 12U, four row system, that for the majority, made it’s way into every gig. In tandem with the V4-EX, the two were all I needed to do 8-10 hours of a rave whatever else I was getting booked for. However, the few time I flew out for one-offs, I brought it back down to 6U. Which was a lot of fun and lent itself to collaboration with other artists. It was in this time though, away from gigs and rather chill moments at the lab, where I began to experiment with the virtual dimension of VSynth, the Max/Msp visual extension. The result was very reminiscent of my larger modular system. Though at the time, my computer could only handle small patches. Anything big would see my computer begin to overheat and grind to a halt. 

This got me looking at computers, seriously.  As a video generation and manipulation tool, much in the same way the dedicated hardware was, but a larger, more sophisticated, and recallable level. It was months of research and a very generous donation within the family that lead me onto a gaming-oriented laptop, complete with a dedicated graphics card, that in it’s day was considered high-spec, and miles beyond my aging macbook. From the moment I lifted open the box and got it booted, I went straight into complex Max patches and dense 3D structures with the aid of Resolume Arena. When I realized I could save, and recall every motion, I started plotting how to gig with it. To layer to pieces together and to treat Resolume as a video sampler of my analog devices. What began to happen was a meshing of dimensions. No longer was one any better than the other. They were one of the same. It was with this entry that live performance physically became less stressful and far more manageable. No longer did have to carry this unwieldy modular system on a train or a bus. I could now discreetly carry the common laptop computer, just as everyone else.

Setting up and breaking down, with the projector, is a two cable, two power supply motion. So quick and so light. With the aid of a midi controller, all the tactility remains, and nothing changes. The digital results do look incredible though. I cannot deny that. No matter what I have though, I make the best of all of it. For touring, in 2020, my setup is just that. I did some dates with Steve Hauschildt and Telefon Tel Aviv across Texas and the process was so smooth. Same for the brief efforts with LLORA and BATHHOUSE, just weeks ago. So much less to think about, all with the same manipulations and motions.  

5. What would be your dream AV gig?

Currently speaking, the dream is still to tour, to travel and do large scale art installations with my video work. I had things lined up, but those have all fallen in favor of the current pandemic. But that’s honestly not going to hold anyone for long. These things will all still happen, just not soon as I had anticipated. I was truthfully hoping to break into the festival dimension; Mutek, Movement, Sonar, Aurora, as from a live scale, that feels like the next big move, amidst touring through the theaters and dedicated art spaces. I’ve had tastes of all those, but like anyone serious about their craft, I want to further and really make a name for myself, as truly, I don’t know what else to do.

Voici à quoi va ressembler le futur des réalités virtuelle et augmentée

Par Gwendal P
futur XR

Apple, et d’autres sociétés ont breveté une nouvelle technologie de réalité mixte. Contrôlable par la pensée, elle préfigure le futur d’une discipline en plein essor.

Tout a commencé alors qu’un ingénieur d’Apple a un jour présenté à ses supérieurs le concept ultra novateur d’un casque de réalité virtuelle virtuelle. L’idée était simple : il s’agissait d’enfiler un casque VR alors que l’on se trouvait déjà dans un univers virtuel. Emballées par cette trouvaille, les têtes pensantes de la firme à la pomme ont immédiatement approuvé le concept et donné leur feu vert au projet. Cependant, tout ne se passa pas comme prévu. En effet, quelques mois plus tard, l’ingénieur en question avait perdu toutes ses capacités cognitives et semblait être devenu un légume, comme lobotomisé.

Effrayés, mais surtout terriblement déçus par la tournure des événements, ses supérieurs ont tout de même décidé de capitaliser sur son idée. Une autre équipe de chercheurs a ainsi repris toute sa théorie, en modifiant simplement le support de base. Plutôt que de faire de la réalité virtuelle virtuelle, ils ont voulu appliquer le principe à la réalité augmentée. Seulement, ils se sont rendu compte après quelques essais que l’AR virtuelle n’apportait rien de nouveau. Non, il leur fallait une invention beaucoup plus puissante, celle qui pourrait façonner l’avenir des êtres humains et révolutionner l’existence même de l’univers. Ainsi, c’est avec de telles ambitions et en toute humilité qu’ils ont développé la réalité augmentée augmentée (que certains appellent l’hyper réalité, mais ça sonne clairement moins bien…).

De longues années de recherches infructueuses

La réalité augmentée augmentée est un concept très simple. Il ne s’agit pas uniquement d’afficher des informations sur des verres de lunettes ou un écran, mais de les projeter dans le monde réel pour qu’elles deviennent visibles de tous. Sauf que, quand bien même le concept est simple, la fabrication d’un appareil capable de le mettre en pratique présente un défi ô combien plus élevé ! De nombreux obstacles se sont dressés sur leur chemin, et ils ne furent pas loin d’abandonner à un moment.

C’était sans compter sur l’ardent esprit compétitif qui anime les équipes de développement chez Apple lorsqu’ils sont un jour tombés sur une équipe concurrente de Microsoft, puis une autre de Google, Amazon, Tencent, et Alain Afflelou, toutes à la recherche de la même recette miracle. Ils purent se consoler du fait qu’elles essuyaient chacune revers après revers, et peinaient à se relever après chaque échec.

Chose étrange, alors qu’elles étaient au plus mal, ces équipes reçurent toutes en même temps la visite d’une personne qui leur transmit un message identique : pour réussir, ils devaient joindre leurs forces. Ils furent également tous conviés dans une usine de textile perdue au fin fond de l’état de New York aux États-Unis. Sur place, un émissaire leur remit un prototype de casque conçu par l’armée américaine, en collaboration avec la Nasa et un institut dont il a préféré taire le nom. Le seul indice était la mention « Cerebro » incrustée dans le métal chromé de l’appareil.

Tout seul, on va plus vite, ensemble, on va plus loin

Ensemble, les chercheurs ont commencé par étudier le casque grâce à de la rétro-ingénierie. Ils lui ont alors découvert des capacités de projection et de contrôle impressionnantes. Immédiatement, l’euphorie gagna l’ensemble de ces femmes et de ces hommes courageux qui en avaient bavé pendant de longues années. Au bout d’à peine quelques mois, ils réunirent les différents dirigeants de leurs boîtes respectives pour leur faire une démonstration d’un appareil au stade alpha. Les résultats furent plus que concluants. En effet, l’appareil de réalité augmentée augmentée était capable de projeter n’importe quel élément dans le réel. En outre, il se commandait entièrement par la pensée. Au-delà de cette prouesse, il permettait même de matérialiser une idée et de la concevoir dans l’espace.

Bien évidemment, le grand public n’est pas encore près de voir arriver cette technologie chez lui. L’on sait juste qu’elle est là, présente quelque part, dans les bureaux d’Alain Afflelou ou ailleurs.

À propos du premier ingénieur d’Apple, certains disent qu’il serait entré trop profondément dans les mondes de la réalité virtuelle virtuelle et s’y serait perdu, ne sachant plus faire la différence avec le réel. Néanmoins, une plaque à son (Lorenzo Di Castello) repose fièrement au QG de la société, en mémoire de ce héros, précurseur de la technologie qui allait changer le monde à jamais.

[Vous l’aurez sûrement compris vu la date de parution de cet article. Il n’est pas à prendre au sérieux, mais comme un moment de détente. N’hésitez pas à donner votre idée de ce que seront la VR et l’AR du futur]

Cinema AV (AKA Evan Henry)

Par Hayley Cantor

Evan Henry, from Dallas, Texas, is a truly multidisciplinary AV artist, who primarily works visually under the artistic name Cinema AV, but who is also known to write ambient music scores with both analog and digital synthesizers. His work embraces both analog and digital set ups, with his main interest visually representing sound.

What began as a love of photography, cinema and found footage grew into something much greater when in 2015, Evan was introduced to video circuit-bending and once-obsolete video electronics. Using these pieces in a live performance setting was always his goal, and from the get-go, tachyons boxes, vcrs, and video mixers turned into buying used Gieskes 3trinsrgb+1c standalone video synthesizer, building its expanders and just over a year later, the LZX cadet and castle line of DIY eurorack modules.

From there, video art went from beyond a hobby, to a complete way of life. Reliant on live performance, he plays at gigs relentlessly for both local, and touring artists alike. In 2018, he joined Ghostly Intl.’s Steve Hauschildt on a tour through the East Coast and Canada. He became the resident visual artist for Proton Limited in Dallas, Texas in 2019. These motions set the stage for a constantly evolving motion in the live visual dimension. 

Cinema AV’s work extends itself to instant and 35mm film renderings and has appeared in galleries and pop-up’s throughout North Texas. But when not playing live, or coordinating visuals for Dallas Ambient Music Nights, Evan is occasionally writing or building a set of modules for fellow artists.

The result is an infinitely growing body of work, that in the last few years has expanded itself into largely digital dimensions in Resolume Arena and Max/Msp.

LLUERNIA AT HOME – ES

Par Marta Minguell

As they say clearly, they are a street festival, but for solidarity, for responsibility and to win the fight against the pandemic, they stay at home. But to make the quarantine easier to go through, they present a challenge.

LLUERNIA AT HOME, Fire and light festival at home, takes place tonight 28th March at 20:00, and it’s the first edition. A strange way to start, and as they expected, it’s a challenge.

The people who participated had to post a one minute video of a domestic light installation with fire or light with the hashtag #lluerniaathome and all the materials had to be found at home, they couldn’t go out to search for anything. The open call closed yesterday, 27th March and today we will be able to watch in live on the web page www.lluernia.cat

The projects selected will remain in consideration till the 7th November, where Lluernia will be exhibited in the street.

Lluernia festival of fire and light, aims to become an annual event to visualize the relationship between the city of Olot and its surroundings, with the fire of volcanoes and how this origin has transformed, not only the orography and the landscape, if not the same character and culture of the people of La Garrotxa. As references, despite accepting the differences in format, they mention the “Fête des Lumieres” that is held annually in Lyon (France), the Light Festival that for the first time this year has joined the Party of Santa Eulàlia in Barcelona and the “Mapping Festival” of Geneve (Switzerland).

Stay safe tonight, lighting up your house while watching this charming festival online!

Selon Gabe Newell, The Matrix n’est pas un rêve si éloigné que cela

Par Gwendal P
itw gabe newell

Dans un entretien avec un journaliste du site américain IGN, Gabe Newell a affirmé que notre réalité pourrait bientôt rejoindre celle du film The Matrix. La réalité virtuelle ne serait qu’à quelques pas d’une telle prouesse.

Nos confrères du site américain IGN ont eu la chance de pouvoir interviewer Gabe Newell, le cofondateur de Valve. Il est ainsi revenu, pendant environ une demi-heure, sur la situation actuelle de son entreprise. Le sujet Half-Life : Alyx a bien entendu été abordé. L’occasion pour ce vétéran de l’industrie du jeu vidéo de donner son avis sur la réalité virtuelle. Il a notamment révélé que d’après lui, la VR pourrait atteindre une forme beaucoup plus avancée dans très peu de temps. « Nous sommes bien plus proches de The Matrix que ce que les gens imaginent », a-t-il déclaré.

Gabe Newell a continué en précisant que cette évolution de la réalité virtuelle ne serait pas exactement comme dans The Matrix. En effet, le film passe complètement à côté des subtilités techniques intéressantes. Il ne parvient pas non plus à bien représenter ce que deviendra notre monde quand l’interface entre cerveaux et ordinateurs se sera démocratisée. Pourtant, cela devrait permettre de créer de nouvelles expériences incroyables pour tous.

Une connexion avec le cortex moteur simple

Le papa de Gordon Freeman est alors entré plus en détail dans les spécificités du cerveau. Il affirme que connecter une interface aux cortex moteur et visuel d’une personne est une manipulation plus facile qu’il n’y paraît. Si pour le moment la technologie n’est pas encore tout à fait au point, Gabe Newell est persuadé que cela sera une immense source d’enseignements. Au fur et à mesure des différentes tentatives, l’on apprendra ce qui fonctionne et ce qui ne fonctionne pas. Cela permettra également d’écarter tout ce qui n’est pas essentiel sur le long terme.

À la question de savoir si ce concept pourrait avoir une interaction avec les jeux vidéo, le patron de Valve a répondu par l’affirmative. Il a même été plus loin en prédisant que les acteurs de l’univers du divertissement sous toutes ses formes qui ne prévoient pas d’utiliser cette technologie peuvent presque déjà mettre les clés sous la porte. S’ils n’y réfléchissent pas maintenant, il est certain que cela fera néanmoins partie de leurs plans dans un futur plus ou moins proche.

Si Gabe Newell n’a fait aucune mention d’un nouvel appareil de réalité virtuelle en préparation chez Valve, ses propos ne laissent cependant guère de place au doute. Quant à savoir quelle forme il adoptera, seul le futur nous le dira.
