6 ways DJs can get organized during lockdown (you’ll thank yourself later)

We all feel it – the COVID-19 burnout is real. Many of us are itching to get outside, to play clubs again, to be back on a dancefloor, and to play on a big soundsystem again. Yep, we miss it too. But we’re not quite there yet – particularly in the United States. That’s why so […]

Museum of Other Realities : un musée virtuel à découvrir de toute urgence

Par : Shadows

Nous vous avions annoncé il y a quelques jours l’évènement Cannes XR Virtual, qui se tient cette semaine de façon dématérialisée.
Pour rappel, l’accès est gratuit et nécessite simplement l’installation de l’application Museum of Other Realities, compatible avec la plupart des casques du marchés. L’évènement se termine dans une quinzaine d’heures (au moment où nous écrivons ces lignes) avec en théorie un système de replay jusqu’au 3 juillet.

C’est justement sur l’application elle-même que nous allons revenir ici : lancé un peu plus tôt dans l’année, le Museum of Other Realities sert ici de préambule aux galeries du festival Cannes XR proprement dit (que vous trouverez dans le musée en suivant le tapis rouge), mais mérite que l’on s’y attarde.

Concrètement, une fois le Museum of Other Realities lancé, vous aurez droit à deux versions : connectée ou non. Si l’environnement est le même dans les deux cas, le premier choix vous permettra de croiser d’autres visiteurs dans les couloirs de l’espace virtuel d’exposition, voire de discuter.

Bien évidemment, votre avatar est personnalisable à loisir, le levier de génération aléatoire vous permettant rapidement de trouver polygones à votre pied.


Il est également possible d’explorer les lieux par sauts, en flottant, et même à différentes échelles via un système de boissons à la Alice au pays des merveilles (en allant chercher un objet dans son dos, on récupère un cocktail aléatoire avec trois possibilités : taille normale, réduite ou géante).

Ces différentes options s’avèrent parfaitement adaptées pour explorer les sculptures VR du musée. En effet, au hasard des couloirs, vous pourrez admirer des oeuvres statiques ou mobiles créées par différents artistes. Le système de sauts, très classique en VR, est ici utilisé de façon intelligente puisqu’il vous permettra lorsque l’oeuvre s’y prête (diorama, par exemple) de vous y transporter en changeant d’échelle. Un concept astucieux qui permet d’exposer des sculptures et paysages entiers dans le coin d’une pièce virtuelle.

La sélection est particulièrement riche et hétéroclite : dinosaures à plumes de Nick Ladd, scènes florales de Sabby Lighf, Crystal Odyssey de Sutu (artiste ayant collaboré avec Jean-Michel Jarre), scène spatiale de Liz Edwards…

De salle en salle, vous serez amenés à voyager dans des espaces naturalistes ou fantasmagoriques, à pénétrer au coeur d’oeuvres mouvantes, et même à interagir avec certains des projets : Complex Chaos de Sean Tann est par exemple une scène fractale qui évolue selon vos déplacements, Friend Generator enregistre et rejoue vos propres mouvements, etc.

Seul regret, finalement, face à ce musée : le fait que le contenant soit finalement relativement classique, avec un système de salles et couloirs proche du réel. Une architecture plus folle, et quelques améliorations du système de déplacement (un peu trop lent à notre goût) seraient un plus.

Reste que l’ensemble mérite vraiment le détour, et nous vous le conseillons vivement. Gratuit via Steam le temps du Cannes XR Virtual, Museum of Other Realities est habituellement proposé 20€ environ sur la plupart des plateformes VR. Un tarif amplement mérité pour une galerie d’art moderne très réussie.

Le Pixel Museum ferme ses portes, mais espère éviter le Game Over

Par : Shadows

Lancé en février 2017 à Schiltigheim, dans le Bas-Rhin, le Pixel Museum se présentait comme « l’unique musée français consacré au jeu vidéo ». Entre divers projets avortés ou annulés, ou des initiatives seulement temporaires, le secteur vidéoludique est en effet bien mal représenté dans nos établissements culturels.

Si le musée a su accueillir 75 000 visiteurs en trois ans, et une soixantaine d’évènements, son modèle économique n’a pas suivi : l’équipe annonce la fermeture définitive du Pixel Museum.

Du côté du musée, on pointe du doigt « le loyer inapproprié » des locaux appartenant à la ville (le loyer mensuel avec avances sur charges s’élèverait à 8700€ mensuels environ pour une surface de 920m² environ) et « l’absence de soutien de collectivités », entre autres. La mairie, citée par DNA, réfute en bloc l’accusation, évoquant notamment une subvention de 30 000€ votée fin 2018. A ce stade, indique DNA, le musée doit encore 34 900€ à la mairie de Schiltigheim.

Quoiqu’il en soit, le Pixel Museum ne s’avoue pas totalement vaincu : le communiqué officiel indique clairement que l’équipe souhaite « pouvoir partager à nouveau rapidement avec le public ». Reste à déterminer un nouveau lieu d’accueil pour les collections du musée.

What digital did next: Digital Arts and Social Distancing

Par : Marco Savo



How digital arts can unlock value and opportunity in a socially distanced cultural sector?

Marco Savo from Audiovisual City and Kate Rolfe from The Revels Office have never met in person. Theirs is a true digital relationship born of the pandemic.

Cultural consultants who met over Zoom to explore where their world’s crossed-over, and how their mix of experience could help artists, freelancers, and the arts sector as a whole to combat this unsettling time.

Audiovisual City is a digital magazine that promotes and supports audiovisual artists and events worldwide. Connecting hundreds of digital artists from across the world, it is the go-to place for inspiration and information when it comes to the application of digital technologies in artistic expression.

The Revels Office is a cultural consultancy who specialises in finding new revenue for the arts, advising organisations on commercial opportunities and uniting them with funding partners who value the unique, high quality content that only the cultural sector can produce. Together with a network of consultants -The Catalyst Network – the team at The Revels Office manage a range of projects at the intersection between arts and commerce.

Together with a multi-disciplinary group of experts who all have touch-points with digital arts experiences, Audiovisual City and The Revels Office ran a workshop to explore what role digital arts projects could play in the future of arts organisations.

At a time when the sector is anxiously remodelling their core operations to survive months of low visitor numbers, reduced income through established business lines, and a new, uneasy socially distanced experience, we wanted to investigate what untapped value digital arts might offer.

We share with you here a summary of our findings, designed to inspire you at a critical time, to offer valuable ideas to consider in your re-modelling plans, and to decipher the role that digital can play in a sector based almost entirely on live and tangible experiences…


Case Study: Enjambre Cellular

Developed by Mónica Rikić, Enjambre Celular is a project created and designed specifically for the Medialab-Prado interactive façade.

It is a collective strategy game in which different levels and challenges must be overcome, based on the idea of a labyrinth. Controlled externally by passers-by, Enjambre Celular offers an example of a pandemic-proof artistic installation.


Case Study: Distances

Developed by Scenocosme, In this installation, two people in two separate physical spaces are filmed in real time by two devices.

They are invited to have contact virtually within the same image, bringing them together face to face. The head-to-head image created by the software is trying to constantly reduce the proxemic distance between the two people, creating unique and ephemeral meetings with the other and making a connection even when physically apart.

Digital art vs digital design.

To make informed choices about the use of digital, it is important to understand the distinction of digital art as an artform in its own right, and digital design as a tool for engagement.

Put simply – do you need to move your live content online for commercial, audience or safety reasons, or do you want to create a new interpretation of your content that will explore your stories in an entirely new way? Neither choice is right or wrong, but it will impact the outcomes you achieve, as well as the process you go through.

“The importance of concept is key; you must start with your concept and then chose the technology to match”

Hayley Cantor

What digital art and digital design have in common is their ability to bridge between traditional cultural content and modern, digitally aware audiences, and allow people to fully interact with the arts.

No solution is quicker for overcoming an image of being elitist, static or uninteresting than a digital initiative, so long as it is done well, has a clear purpose and audience, and so long as it incorporates some kind of live and/or unique element that ensures the digital is not simply a mimic of the live experience.

While digital design is fantastic for bringing to life educational and historic content, and is arguably simpler for translating to an online platform, where digital arts stands out is in the sensorial, emotive experience that they can create, lasting longer in people’s memories and creating a sense of community and harmony even if you encounter the art alone.

Digital arts is the perfect solution for a hybrid cultural offering, connecting those experiencing it online and those there in person, allowing for smaller, safer groups to pass through it without losing the commercial, social and artistic benefits of scale.

Case Study: Virtual Archive.

Virtual Archive is a 3D, computer-generated environment open to interactive exploration by single users.

Via a VR headset, the user flies through a 3D data-point cloud formed, visualizing more than 1,700,000 documents present in SALT Research archive collections. Refik Anadol’s installation was displayed as an extension to the artist’s Archive Dreaming project.

Case Study: Natural History Museum of Valparaisa.

In the Introductory Room at Natural History Museum of Valparaíso, Chile, visitors meet an installation of naturalistic illustrations of flora and fauna of the region, highlighting the work of Claudio Gay among others.

Developed by Delight Lab, this project was realised in partnership with the SUMO design and museum office for DIBAM.

It’s time to set the price.

The price we have paid for the vast amounts of thrilling, comforting and informative digital content that has been dispersed throughout the global lock-down, is the expectation that digital means free.

Digital comes with development costs, artist costs and new software and/or infrastructure requirements, among other operational demands. Digital content is by no means free to create, and so why is it presented as free to consume? There are two ways of looking at this dilemma.

• Option 1 is to embrace the non-financial value that going digital presents: reaching new and much larger audiences, collecting insightful data, offering educational and social benefits, and adopting new methods in storytelling and human connection.

In this way there is still value, there are no barriers to audiences engaging with you, and you can use data and reach to collaborate with new funding partners, upsell products and services, and request donations wherever possible.

In this way we have seen a really positive response during the pandemic, with culture-lovers willingly paying for online experiences, seeing this as a charitable donation to save something they love rather than a charge for valuable entertainment. However this has not yet translated into a consistent approach that audiences and funders recognise, or indeed made up the huge gap in revenue that arts organisations face.

• Option 2 is to revaluate and recommunicate the value of the digital experience, and set up platforms that give organisations the option to charge.

Given the high value outlined by option 1, it seems reasonable that – just like the expectation to pay for the cinema or a gig – you will have to pay to participate in digital cultural experiences. This transactional view may not sit well alongside arts experiences that are traditionally free, such as museum-entry, but this demonstrates the opportunity presented by digital arts as opposed to digital design; by creating a new experience on a new platform, arts organisations can create something of value to their audiences (and new ones), one which better warrants a participation charge.

Ultimately this is an argument of supply and demand, but what we endorse is a collective reassessment of how and when to charge for digital experiences, thereby protecting arts organisations and artists from giving away valuable content for free, especially when for a time this might be one of their only viable sources of revenue.


Case Study: Fulldome Festival

The oldest full dome projection festival has been held virtually for the first time this year due to the pandemic, charging a ticket price for the online experience. A courageous decision from the organisers who decided to go full steam ahead, offering a 360 view of the festival using VR headsets.

Case Study: Mutek San Francisco, Nexus Experience

Mutek is one of the top audiovisual events worldwide, born in Montreal and then expanded through an international network. The San Francisco edition has been online this year with their ‘Nexus Experience’, hosting live AV performers on two stages, offering digital galleries, online workshops, and ‘viewing party’ film screenings. The event was free and open to donations, with 100% of the festival proceeds going directly to the artists.

Demystifying the digital process (and budget).

Digital arts experiences are impactful and memorable no matter what their size, from single exhibition displays through to city-wide festivals. While they can be huge and expensive, often a digital intervention is as cost-effective as a live experience due to the flexibility of the format, recouping investment costs over a far longer lifespan.

For those who want to consider digital as part of their future plans, digital arts producer Steph Clarke shares some considerations:

• Once a digital installation, artwork or exhibition is installed, it can often run 24/7 with minimal staffing and low running costs. Not only can this make valuable budget savings, it also accommodates far higher audience numbers over time, and can easily be adapted to allow for social distancing measures.

• Digital works can easily have their content re-purposed to suit different objectives. Content can be refreshed regularly to suit seasonality, adapted for VIP or stakeholder events, and used for advertising purposes if required.

• It is relatively easy to scale digital work depending upon size of venue or audience size, meaning this approach can be considered for a variety of projects, places and budgets.

• Digital can be used to extend and enhance audience engagement before and after the event/exhibition itself, through engagement online and via apps, creating more touchpoints with your intended audience and opportunities to capture insights and data.

• By digitalising the content for a digital installation, you are simultaneously archiving it too, preserving it for future generations and achieving important cost-savings.

• Given the huge range of digital formats available – apps, projection, light shows, VR, AR – there will always be a format suitable for your budget, timescale and objectives.


Case Study: 400 Conejos.

As part of the Bahidora 2018 festival, Medusa Lab created a unique experience for Ache Producciones and its client: Mezcal 400 conejos.

Attendees received a complimentary drink of mezcal prior entering the dome, and once inside they discovered the mezcal making process through an immersive, colour-filled experience using animations and 360 video.

Case Study: Pinata Tweet.

Piñata was a project made by MID for +Castro agency and the SAKE production company. The piñatas were installed as part of a collaboration with Trident Senses at Benicàssim International Festival.

The interactive piñatas are controlled via Twitter messages sent by the audience. Every tweet contained #TridentSensesPinata, which activated a device that inflated the piñata. As messages accumulated, eventually the piñata exploded over the audience!

Audiovisual City and The Revels Office plan to now work together.

We aim to connect arts organisations with digital artists and commercial partners, creating inspirational and viable projects in a time of pandemic.

Together we will champion the skills, value and authenticity that digital art and digital tools can bring those looking to find new audiences and new revenue. Get in touch to discuss how these ideas could be applied to your own organisation – hello@therevelsoffice.co.uk

This article was written by Kate Rolfe from The Revels Office and Marco Savo from Audiovisual City with contributions from Hayley Cantor (Audiovisual City Creative Director, Multidisciplinary Graphic Designer and VJ), Sean Carroll (Business Improvement Project Manager), Nicola Casperson (Brand Marketing, Events and Place-Making Consultant), Steph Clarke (Digital Arts Producer), Marta Minguell Colomé (New Media Artist, VJ and Photographer), Amy O’Brien (Events Producer), and Mónica Rikic (New Media Artist).

BODY (UN)MUTE: 28–29 May 2020 ONLINE


ONLINE, 28 – 29 May 2020

BODY (UN)MUTE: A two-day online festival that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing.


As we slide into the new normal or la nueva normalidad it is inevitable that the AV world will experience a considerable amount of visibility during the pandemic as technology plays an important part in everything that we do. A surge of online events, meetings and live streams now fill up our diaries like they are going out of fashion and meeting up with your mates down the pub for a pint after work is so 2019.

Enter the evolution of user generated entertainment platforms like Twitch, which now boasts 17.5 million average daily visitors. Resident Advisor has invented its own virtual island Streamland where all virtual events that have been successfully submitted to RA exist. And MelodyVR brings the artist even closer to the fan through some very high spec virtual reality streaming experiences. Did somebody say Zoom quiz? 

The drive for innovation and exploration in the world of audiovisual art and culture is again on the rise, opening up in new forms. Which leads me onto the question about interdisciplinary artists and institutions who challenge the status quo and dare to oppose the mainstream. Where are they and what is their artistic response to the pandemic? 

I give you BODY (UN)MUTE. A two-day online festival curated by Bogomir Doringer hosted by ICK Dans Amsterdam that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing. The audiovisual event will deliver a programme of workshops, talks and performances from all corners of new media, dance and conceptual art. But how can these rituals take place in an online space?

Photo courtesy of BODY (UN)MUTE: Ania Nowak_performance: To the Aching Parts!

“Technology has been around forever, but most people are not familiar with the basics of streaming. Porn channels and video gaming platforms are way ahead of time and up until now artists haven’t really engaged with it, which makes it harder to get a certain quality that produces something more than just a Zoom call. I have been following the ritual of masking since 9/11 with my project Faceless – Re-inventing Privacy Through Subversive Media Strategies. What is the role of this in contemporary times? BODY (UN)MUTE is a physical representation of Faceless and my art exhibition Dance Of Urgency, which explores how dance and ritual rise in times of personal and collective crises, and how it can empower individuals and groups. In amongst a global pandemic both these ideas live together and that is why I want to explore this space with new media artists”

– Bogomir Doringer

Jeremy Bailey

Some highlights come in the form of Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey who wants you to join his Augmented Reality Makeover Party where step-by-step you can learn how to perfect your own Augmented Reality (AR) digital mask and alter ego. Transgress and queer-up your identity, become a drag unicorn or whatever else you can imagine!

Rosa Menkman

Rosa Menkman, an art theorist and visual artist specialising in glitch art and resolution theory, will screen her work Pique Nique pour les Inconnues :: The CHORUS VERSION (2019-2020). The video looks at various unknown women whose images are linked to the history of image processing. While these women seem to be able to prolong their existence for as long as the (digital) realms will copy and reuse them, most of them have lost their name and identity.

Keren Rosenberg

Live performance comes in the form of Keren Rosenberg and Nicola Cavalazzi, who will present an audiovisual art installation which explores our social obsession in self-exposure through the use of modern technology. Together they will question what it means to perform in front of a camera – where does the body finish and the screen start? 

Photo courtesty of BODY (UN)MUTE: Keren Rosenberg performing Emotional Porn – Exhibition of the Self

Dr. Kelina Gotman

Dr. Kelina Gotman talks about how Choreomania, the manic crave for dance, is not just a bi-product of lockdown. Choreographer Emio Greco will elaborate on the Pizzica, a dance from his native ground in Puglia that was danced to heal yourself from the bite of a poisonous spider. And Shanghai Radio will close the two day event giving us an insight into how creativity, music and online streaming kept the Chinese creative community connected during the lockdown. 

In a reaction to the pandemic tickets for the event are based on the principles of donation, which provides the public freedom to support the hard work and dedication from all the artists involved.

Let the body unmute.

3DSEN, un émulateur qui transforme vos jeux NES en jeux 3D (MAJ)

Mise à jour : 3DSen est désormais disponible en accès Anticipé sur Steam pour 7.37€. Merci à Shiki Ryu pour l’info.

Billet original du 26/05/2020 : L’idée est très sympathique, 3DSEN prend vos roms de NES et les passe à la moulinette de son moteur graphique pour les basculer dans un monde 3D particulier.

Le résultat est bluffant même si on n’a pas toute la nostalgie des anciens titres 2D, cela permet de revisiter certains jeux d’une manière originale et sympathique. 3DSEN propose une liste de jeux compatibles toujours plus grande avec 67 titres pour le moment mais qui va continuer à grandir. On retrouvera Mario Bros, Megaman, Super Mario Bros, Tetris, Pacman, Ghosts ‘N Goblins, les Donkey Kong, Bubble Bobble et bien d’autres.

3dSen

Disponible sur Steam, il est possible d’y jouer via Steam Link et donc de retrouver ses jeux sur un téléviseur facilement au travers d’une box Android ou autre. Le Lag est, semble t-il, parfaitement bien géré et le passage en 3D en temps réel ne se fait pas au détriment de la jouabilité des titres. L’émulateur existe également en version “VR”.

Cerise sur le gâteau, l’émulateur est vraiment peu gourmand et pourra donc fonctionner sur des machines assez anciennes. Un bon moyen d’initier des réfractaires aux jeux 2D à ces anciens titres qu’ils jugeraient un peu repoussants au premier abord. Le jeu devrait être lancé le 19 Juin prochain.

 A découvrir sur Steam.

Merci à ShikiRyu pour l’info

Powkiddy X2 : comme un air de déjà vu…

Oui, les gens qui ont construit cette Powkiddy X2 ne se sont pas vraiment cassé la tête pour son design. C’est une copie grossière de la Nintendo Switch. Evidemment cette solution n’a rien à voir avec la console sans aucune de ses capacités. Je suppose que l’intention des designers de ce projet n’est pas forcément très noble, probable que la marque cherche à égarer quelques brebis inattentives.

Powkiddy

C’est également un moyen simple de se faire de la publicité à peu de frais, je n’aurais sans doute pas relevé l’existence de cet engin si il n’était pas aux couleurs de la célèbre console. Bref, la Powkiddy X2 c’est un ersatz de Switch avec une ergonomie qui doit peut être hériter de quelques éléments du gros travail de design de Nintendo mais gère plus.

POWKIDDY X2

Par exemple, la console ne propose pas de détacher les manettes qui sont d’un bloc avec l’écran. Par contre la disposition globale devrait rappeler les réflexes de la solution de Nintendo… sur des jeux émulés par un SoC Rockchip RK3128, une solution quadruple coeur ARM Cortex-A7 cadencée à 1.3 GHz et un circuit graphique Mali-400MP2. Pas d’infos concernant la mémoire vive et le stockage pour le moment si ce n’est la présence d’un lecteur de cartes MicroSDXC. Pas une merveille donc en terme de performances mais une puce qui peut s’avérer suffisante pour ce type d’usage.

Powkiddy

J’utilise le conditionnel car suivant les capacités en mémoire la solution pourra se révéler plus ou moins efficace. La partie logicielle étant également un élément important de l’équation, il est possible que même en étant très bien équipée, l’engin se comporte de manière médiocre en émulation. La promesse est la prise en charge c’est 11 émulateurs différents pour assumer des jeux PlayStation, MegaDrive, NeoGeo, NES, SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color et Advance.

L’écran est un 7″ IPS qui affiche en 1024 x 600 pixels mais la Powkiddy X2 propose également une sortie miniHDMI pour déporter le signal sur un plus grand écran. La console embarque également deux ports MicroUSB pour connecter d’éventuelles manettes externes. Une batterie de 3000 mAh est intégrée sans aucune mention de l’autonomie de l’engin.

La console Powkiddy X2 est proposée sur AliExpress à 72.01€ avec le code promo LXD5HF5ATMEQ mais je ne vous encourage vraiment pas à craquer sans un minimum de retours sur ses capacités. Si vous cherchez une console très capable en émulation et reconnue pour ses capacités, une solution comme la RG350 est, à mon sens, une meilleure solution même si son écran est… deux fois plus petit.

Delight Lab

Par : Marco Savo

Delight Lab is an audiovisual design and experimentation studio pivoting around the concepts of video, light and space.

Established in 2009, covering a variety of projects such as large-scale videomapping projections on architecture, museology audiovisual installations, audiovisual stage design for performing arts, audiovisual content for commercial events, and audio-reactive visuals for live shows among other things.

The origin of Delight Lab goes back when two brothers decided to make projects together at the university: Germán (Design) and Andrea (Art and Aesthetics).

Both audiovisual artists had developed investigations and experimentation with light, the phantasmagoria, the video-projection and the intervention of spaces. All different experiments culminated in a projection mapping on the facade of The Contemporary Art museum of Santiago.

This projection realized in January, 2009 was one of the first mapping projections in Chile. This milestone opened the way to further investigation, artistic and technological experimentation, interdisciplinary exchange and cultural management. These values are still present in every project carried out by the duo.

⁣EXO/ENDO from six years ago. Still one of our favorite projects ever and some of the best music we’ve been able to work with from the amazing @andrelizyoung. Haunting, dark, and brooding just like we like it. We got to encase the entire ensemble in pods of scrim and projection while we went down a tunnel, through the trees, into the fire, and through the ash fall. Exothermic and endothermic reactions of sound and light. #productiondesign #projectiondesign #projection #videodesign #destruction #layers #noise #experimental #doom #metal #music #live #liveperformance #calarts #openframeworks #millumin

1.YOU HAVE A VERY VARIED, YET DISTINCTIVE AESTHETIC THAT CAN BE EASILY RECOGNIZED, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO CLASSIFY! WHAT WERE YOUR EARLY GRAPHIC INFLUENCES/INSPIRATIONS AND WHAT ELEMENTS OR EXPERIENCES HAVE BEEN KEY TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR STYLE?

 

Hi guys! Thank you for your questions and your interest in my work. Let’s get started! Here my main influences:

In the 80s: whilst growing up in France, I was very inspired by the vast amount of Japanese anime on TV, especially the Cobra series (funny that it was just on kids TV back then in France, where it would be rated 12 or 15 here in UK now) and films like Videodrome, Nightmare on Elm Street, Evil Dead 2, 2001, The Thing, Altered States, Blazing Saddles, Monty Python films and such like.

In the later 80’s & 90’s whilst living in different parts of the UK during my student years, I was really into rave graphics and visuals like
Stakker Humanoid and FSOL.

I was massively into MTV’s Aeon Flux series and non verbal films like Baraka, Koyananskatsti, Atlantis and such like. The Day Today  / Brass eye have been quite important as well in terms of absurdity and “OTT-ness”, especially the Brass eye Infographics. Then in late 90’s & early 00s once I moved to London I was massively into Ryoji Ikeda / Dumb Type / Semi-conductor Films / Ukawa.

In terms of key experiences, I’d say it was seeing Daft Punk live multiple times in the mid 90’s & their Audiovisual show in the 1997 tour. That was definitely the main experiences that pushed me to do what I do in the audiovisual world.

It was like a “smack in the face”. So bold, minimal and sync-ed to the music, it totally blew me away. I remember thinking back then, I wanted to blow people away in the same way someday.

2. IN YOUR WORK WE CAN SEE A BIG VARIETY OF IMAGE PROCESSING RESULTS, DOES THIS EXPERIMENTATION GO HAND IN HAND WITH AN EXPERIMENTATION OF THE TOOLS YOU USE TO CREATE THE VISUALS AS WELL?

 

Good question, that I’m not sure how to answer as I don’t really think about it in that way. I’d say I very much differentiate my live & studio work. To me, my live visuals are technically made in similar ways to how my friends make music.

I position myself in the same category as lighting/laser designers, in a sense that I’m there merely complementing/enhancing the audio experience. As in my studio work I very much try to recreate the kinda vibe of an anime intro or 80s music video, which in my opinion were far more entertaining. For me, it’s all about visual impact and entertaining the audience.

3. HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE “AUDIOVISUAL ART” AND HOW DO YOU POSITION YOURSELF IN THIS SPECIFIC CULTURE?

 

This is a tricky question for me, as I find it hard to categorize anything I see on my computer screen or at a party as art. For me it’s more like graphics or entertainment. Call me old fashioned but for it to be Art is has to be in an art context (whatever that is), and as my work isn’t in galleries or such like (yet) i don’t really consider myself as an artist.

Actually I find the words art/artists are used way too sparingly in this day and age, so I’m not really sure as to where I fit in all this. I’d rather not think about it and just carry on doing my thing & let other people define me as they see fit…

4. YOUR CAREER DEVELOPED ACROSS DIFFERENT FIELDS AND MEDIA SUCH AS ADVERTISING, FASHION, ELECTRONIC MUSIC, VIDEO CLIPS, AND SO ON. CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE CONCEPTUAL AND AESTHETIC LINKS CONNECTING ALL YOUR VERY DIVERSE PROJECTS??

 

I’m very much into specific/custom made/location-based designs. My ideas tend to be finding a way to best fit the “where” and “what”. My concepts are very driven by discussions (or lack of) with the artist/clients, which is why my work tends to vary in style (or quality, if the client/artist has too little input or dictates too much)

5. YOU HAVE WORKED WITH MANY DIFFERENT MUSICIANS AND SINGERS THROUGHOUT THE YEARS. COULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS OF VISUALIZING A SOUNDSCAPE AND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WORKING WITH ABSTRACT CONTENTS LIKE ELECTRONIC MUSIC AND THE MORE EXPLICIT NARRATIVE OF POP AND HIP HOP CULTURE?

 

Firstly I figure the possibilities and limitations and work within those boundaries, then I discuss with artist/client to figure a rough direction to aim for, it then it generally snowballs from there.

I generally try to deliver what the artist/client & target audience wants, but not necessarily what they expect, so I tend to avoid the obvious options.

I don’t think I approach a project that differently depending on what genre of music it is. I just try and do whatever feels right for that category of music, BUT the workflow is vastly different depending of the type of artists they are.

Some artist are way more approachable than others regardless their music genres and when I can bounce ideas back and forth with them that is when I can go deep into what they truly want and get the best results. I can’t say the same when there’s a sea of management/label/producers between me and the artist.

It’s fair to the results are far more fruitful when I work with artists who don’t take themselves too seriously as I’m not a yes-man nor my specialty is making people like prim & proper.
