How Your Choice of Podcast Music Can Make or Break Your Success

So, you’re ready to start a brand new podcast. You’ve got the idea, the team, you already recorded an episode. Now to the one key ingredient – ...

Interview to Paco Gramaje

This is our interview to Paco Gramaje, art director of the Paco Gramaje Studio in Barcelona.

The studio creates immersive multidisciplinary AV shows, especially focusing on the fusion between projection mapping and dance performance.

We asked Paco a few questions about his background and creative career and also about the new projects he has been cooking up during the quarantine period.

1. When did you start working on the interaction between audiovisual and dance performance, and how did you get involved? What are the aspects that are more appealing to you about working in this interdisciplinary field?

It all begun in 2009. After quitting my job as an engineer I moved to Madrid to study a Master in Motion Graphics while making my first experiences in the world of video art. 

In 2010 I started up several collaborations with art organizations in Madrid and they proposed to me to shoot a dance performance by the choreographer Iratche Ansa.

The performance was going to be held at the Matadero in Madrid. From that recording I put together my first video dance “Comunicación Interpretación Automática” which had a very good reception.

I had discovered the potential of dance from an audiovisual perspective and the inner revelation of what I wanted to do in the next few years.

A few months later I made my first dance pieces with live visuals with choreographer Barbara Fritsche.

Thanks to those projects I was able to work on the musical “Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar” in 2013. In 2014 I directed my first proper theatre show: “Girasomnis”.

Interview to Paco Gramaje
2. You are the creator of “Girasomnis”, an itinerant project that has been traveling around the world. Can you tell us about the creative process behind the inception of this innovative project?

I try to “connect” the visuals with the dancers. Sometimes I encourage the dancers to “connect” or follow my visuals.

In this project I also composed the music. This is very useful as I have better control of the creative process. With this project I tried to evoke feelings in the audience without words: just images, dance and instrumental music.

Paco Gramaje - Audiovisual artist
3. Paco Gramaje Studio recently launched the “Dance Mapping Virtual Tour 2020” which it’s fundraising on Gumroad. This is in preparation for a new cutting-edge AV dance project in 2021 involving a 360 immersive environment . Can you give us some insights about the whole project?

This quarantine caused an abrupt stop in my job, but also gave me time to start imagining something new.

The idea was born during the first week of confinement. At the start, It was simple: I just wanted to publish some of our best projects and make them public. But I also felt a need for a change.

The last 3 years I was quite disconnected from my artistic side due to working mostly on commercial projects. 

I was just focusing on making money to pay my bills and trying to have a stable team for audiovisual production. The outbreak of the Covid-19  has been an absolute shift in our work. We started questioning the possibility of doing our shows as we did before.

Therefore I needed to devise another type of format for the new normal awaiting us: a fully immersive virtual Dance Mapping Show.

As my previous theatre production, without the pressure of a client and using the Girasomnis music.

So, in April I started to visualize and write a synopsis of this new project. I then decided to publish “Dance Mapping Virtual Tour 2020” as a memorandum of all these years of physical shows. 

Now it’s time to go further. I want to gather all the knowledge I gained during the last 10 years and apply it to a virtual reality show, where I can break the limits and make an immersive 360º visual performance with dancers.

This new production is planned to be released in VR and physical 360 projection format in late 2021.

4. When working on a project how do you pick your collaborators? What are the main roles you look for in your team? 

When I have the budget I can work with some powerful audiovisual freelancers from my network of collaborators. Failing that I work alone.

I also work with very talented dancers/choreographers from Barcelona. During the years they started to understand my ideas and transform them in beautiful choreographies. 

5. Can you describe your general creative approach when starting on a new project?

I have mostly 2 ways of work. I compose a music draft and then I work on the visuals and choreography or vice versa: I make a draft of visual content with a draft choreography and I try to match the sounds and music.

Sometimes I give leeway to the dancer, so they can create their own choreography and then I create the visual content following their movements.

In the last few years I also worked with some talented musicians for a faster audiovisual production.

6. In 2015, Paco Gramaje Studio won an award at the International Mapping Festival in Girona for the Micro-mapping category. Could you share with us your thoughts about the concept of “Micro-mapping”? 

This was a concept from Roman Torre. In 2015 I shared a space with him and we collaborated together on a video mapping of a rotating stone. It was a nice project called Liquid Series.

In the video mapping area I also tried to develop innovative concepts, differing from the typical big projection on a building facade. 2 Years ago I started to develop the concept of “Holomapping”. I am planning to finish it next year as well.

7. We are aware you regularly teach courses and masterclasses of video mapping applied to performing arts, in Spain and Latin America.


What specific training would you recommend for digital artists who have just started their career and why? Which are the countries with more opportunities for audiovisual arts, in your opinion?

Nowadays, it is possible to learn a lot following digital online courses, but it is always better if somebody guides you. As with everything in life the best way to learn is practice, making mistakes and improving. 

Spain is not the best country for arts, I would say. As far as I know French artists or from other European countries have more grants and support from their governments, but everything is possible if you are passionate about your work.

bb15 Open Call: Art + Magic

Par : Marco Savo

DEADLINE: 5 September 2020

bb15 launches the open call: Art + Magic for all audiovisual artist.

The contemporary art venue in Linz opens up its doors to an artist residency resulting in an exhibition or live event.

The open call aims at exploring the primordial relationship between art making and the concept of magic, especially related to the use of new technologies to inspire mystery and wonder.

bb15 Open Call

Artistic gestures and processes can be seen as magical rituals, from which the myth of the artist has emerged over time. The aura of the artwork is used to cast a spell on its viewer!

In the art scene in particular, mysticism around art-making is kept alive by common rituals such as exhibitions, vernissages, and performative events, which propose collective shared experiences of something bigger. 

For this open call, bb15 is seeking original project proposals that trigger mental associations and subliminal experiences at the junction of art, ritual and magic.

The residency program focuses on and explores the interplay between contemporary visual art and auditory practices, in relation to the theme of art+magic. The call doesn’t exclude any artistic media.

bb15 - Open call for audiovisual artists
Teresa Cos: Tunnel Boring Machine

During the residency at bb15, the selected artists will be expected to push forward and bring further their proposal into a work that will be presented to the public at the end of the residency.

It is highly desirable that the invited artists create specific and new works during their stay.

Conditions:

– Duration: 2-3 weeks

– Possible periods: Spring 2021 or Autumn 2021

– There is a € 1200 all-in budget per artist in residence. This amount should cover all costs such as travel, equipment, production costs, daily expenses, and artist fees. Artists will be provided with free accommodation and workplace at the premises of bb15.

– The residency entails the realization of an exhibition or performative event at bb15.

– bb15 will provide technical and curatorial support as well as the promotion of the exhibition.

Votre PlayStation Camera aura besoin d’un adaptateur pour la PS5

Votre PlayStation Camera aura besoin d’un adaptateur pour la PS5

Dans un billet de blog, Sony a révélé que la PlayStation Camera dans son état actuel sera bien prise en charge par sa très attendue console next-gen, la PS5. Cependant, il faudra utiliser un adaptateur pour que cela marche.

Rassurez-vous, Sony fournira gratuitement le dispositif. Outre la PS Camera, la publication de Sony fait état de tous les périphériques qui fonctionneront ou non avec sa future machine. Si l’on sait en effet depuis quelques mois que le casque PSVR sera bien compatible avec la PS5, le flou restait sur le reste des équipements VR de la marque nippone.

De fait, l’adaptateur en question ne sera gratuit que pour les utilisateurs de la PlayStation VR, si l’on en croit le billet. La firme indique également qu’elle détaillera ultérieurement les démarches à effectuer pour s’en faire livrer un. En tout cas, vous n’aurez donc pas à acheter la nouvelle caméra mise en avant quand Sony a dévoilé sa console.

PlayStation Camera, mais aussi d’autres accessoires pour la PS5

Pour ce qu’il en est de la manette DualShock 4, elle sera bien compatible avec les jeux PS4, mais pas avec les titres PS5. Les PlayStation Move et Aim quant à eux fonctionneront normalement quand on les utilise avec le PlayStation VR.

Pour les fans de réalité virtuelle qui utilisent la PSVR, il n’y aura donc à priori rien à craindre en passant à la PS5. Ils pourront choisir entre les deux modèles de consoles (avec ou sans lecteur) dévoilés fin juin par la marque japonaise.

Néanmoins, il faudra attendre encore un peu pour connaître le prix ainsi que la date de sortie officielle de l’appareil. Nous avions précédemment indiqué une sortie pour Noël 2020, mais aucune date précise n’a été communiquée jusqu’ici.

    Varjo XR-1 Developer Edition bientôt mieux intégré à Unreal Engine

    Par : Sitraka R
    varjo xr-1 developer edition

    Epic annonce l’octroi d’une bourse à Varjo pour étendre la prise en charge d’Unreal Engine par son casque XR-1 Developer Edition.

    L’annonce entre dans le cadre de l’Epic Megagrant, une initiative lancée en 2019 par Epic et dotée de 100 millions $ de fonds pour appuyer les créateurs travaillant avec Unreal Engine. Jusqu’ici, l’entreprise a déjà attribué 42 millions $ au total.

    Varjo est ainsi le dernier boursier à venir du secteur de la réalité virtuelle. La somme octroyée permettra au fabricant d’améliorer la prise en charge d’Unreal Engine sur son XR-1.

    Pour rappel, il s’agit du premier casque de réalité mixte photoréaliste, combinant pour cela le design du précédent VR-1 avec deux caméras de 12 MP sur le devant. Avec cette configuration, les utilisateurs peuvent passer de la réalité mixte à la réalité virtuelle selon leurs besoins.

    Varjo et Epic à la conquête du marché professionnel avec l’XR-1 et Unreal Engine

    Pour Epic Games, le choix de Varjo se justifie par le fait qu’elle propose l’une des solutions les plus avancées en termes de réalités mixte et virtuelle pour une utilisation industrielle. Rendre l’XR-1 compatible avec l’Unreal Engine apportera de nouvelles fonctionnalités XR sur le moteur de jeu d’Epic.

    Pour sa part, Varjo met en avant le fait que les développeurs pourront pour la première fois avoir accès aux fonctionnalités XR professionnelles les plus avancées. Celles-ci leur permettront notamment de composer des environnements réels et virtuels pour une grande variété d’applications.
