Drawing from 10+ years of experience attending ambient, space, and electro-experimental shows, I’ve developed a hardware and software toolset that lets me provide striking on-the-fly as well as scripted visuals.
The video projections that I offer fall into the following categories:
A great example of pre-rendered video is my work with California artist Breakfast. This collaboration resulted in a different video for each of his 10 tracks on the album YELLOWCAKE.
Live improvised videos
A great representation of this format is my live interaction with the space music collective Proteus-3 who performed live at The Rotunda in Philadelphia as part of the Event Horizon concert series.
For this set, I used a combination of original pre-made abstract videos that were then layered on top of video synthesizer images and other inputs. I also provided title graphics for each segment of the show between sets.
The specific style can be modified to suit the act. In this case, I was given a blank slate, but had some experience with the players and knew what they would like. I got a lot of complements from this show.
My interest in video began with a need to provide projections for my own work, both for web presentation and live performance. Below are two of my earliest pieces. While these are a bit different from what I am currently doing, I am still proud of these.
The piece below is from a June 2022 experiment while building an automation tool for processing video – both prerecorded and live.
You can also find examples of video experiments elsewhere and on my Instagram page.
