Emily Triplehead @ Visualisation Festival

This is a short resume of Emily Tripleheads performance at Visualisation Festival 2009. A shame that I lost my SD card with a lot more of footage from the party. So watch this instead. Maybe if someone gots any footage uncut from this event and likes to ship me a dvd with it would be great.

Review on Visualisation Festival 2009

Hey Folks,
back from Visualisation Festival!!! It was just amazing. On arrival day we had some nice talks and after a meal we had a nice presentation by Hendrik Wendler about his Multiscreensystem based on MXWendler Software. He was such a nice guy I think all of us enjoyed. After a break Erik from Bewegtbildbau introduced us a bit into the world of processing. What was meant as a workshop endet just in a presentation and he answered to the questions we hat. At least it's a pitty that these where the only let's say workshop. Meanwhile we are all getting known to each other Yochee and Magiceye where still on the way... they had a small trafficjam on the way..

so right after the presentations of Erik and Hendrik we talked a bit and at our house we even talked further and we also drunk some beer. It was funny and interesting.. oh meanwhile it's about 3:30 a.m. and that's just I think 17 houres after Yochee started his car... and guess! Yeah he made it. he just arrived after e really long trip. Hope his tour back home was not so long. Ok, after 4 houres of sleep I woke up and made myself a instant coffee. And slowly one by one all of us where back in live...
Breakfasttime in Neuhaus. We just had to walk some meters to a nice small pup/restaurant and they had a open fire burning in there. just beautyfull and a kind of romantic atmosphere. we all just talked and talked and afterwards we went back to the festival location. artificialeys Michael showed his VMS system and some funktonality of his macbased software called Thrill - it's a very interesting peace and worth having a look. I helped a bit building the just arrived LED Wall that looked after a small softare crash really amazing with the visuals... we build it as a kind of frame around the stage...

just an hour before the mainevent started I became a haircut from tribalking Stefan Lenk, he also did haircuts for Thomas D and teaches his skills to hairdressers around the globe. First one on the LineUp for the evening was organisator of the festival BILDzumTON a nice family guy but allways a bit stressed I guess. But no wonder if you create such a nice meeting. Respect and thanks Mike! As it becomes more crowded Emily Triplehead did threre performance. Three real nice girls with nice content and stage outfit. But I don't wanna go in detail so much cause every show was great. I also had my 1hour for performing a set of mine. I had so much fun that I did not realise the end of it - def. one of the shortest hours in the last 10 years while I'm doing this stuff. But the last days where a kind of hard and I truly where sleeping during the party right on stage on top of a case. Guess this was a funny for all. I just woke up half an hour before the end.

So after the show we went home to the house and after 2h of sleep the night was over. So I'm quite happy that I had some sleep at stage. ;) Had some nice talks than with Mike and Michael and the Triplehead girls also Frank aka MagicEye and the rest. At the lunchtable Michael told us some really deep things that maked me sad cause of similar experiences. Thanks for sharing you are not just a great vj no you are one of the interesting and deepest persons I met in live. Hope to see you again you are allways welcome to Leipzig/Delitzsch all of you! A pitty that I lost the sd card of my videocam... But anyway - Thanks a lot for this 3 days in Neuhaus.

1st impression on Visualisation Festival

Hey there and good morning folks. Last night we just started Visualisation Festival. It's quit small and except of the VJs no guest where here. Stop. At least two but they left early.  Hendrik Wendler know for his software MXWendler did a presentation of some multiscreen stuff done with his software. That was in fact quit interesting so make sure you check it out. The second "workshop" ended up in a small presentation in whats possible in processing done by Bewegtbildbau. Erik just got a Novation Launchpad a day before and demonstrated some small code snippets to change the color of the buttons and made them blink. And the picture above is just showing Erik playing around with Processing, the Launchpad and Resolume Avenue.Just after maybe 4h of sleep! So gona get you some more pics today and keep you informed. Cheers so far...

told:by - VJ Taras Gesh

This Week Told:By is featuring Taras Gesh from Russia.

Q: Where does your artist name or stage name come from?
A: It's my first name and surname
Q: What best discribes your VJing style?
A: My style to describe is difficult because I work not only in clubs, also at concerts with rock and jazzmusicians and also sometimes with the National Gallery. Usually I prepare special thematic graphic for each event and besides live vj-sets I do video installations  and interactive performances with a videocamera.
I do not adhere to one musical style and I like to experiment with different musical directions, therefore my VJing style is constantly transformed. But as I work with motiongraphics it allows me to create the exclusive material, which I also constantly complicate and change.
Q: Location/Act you ever want to do visuals for and why?
A: Oh, it is a difficult question because I never reflected on it :)
Actually I like to do what I do now and I consider that important not "where" but "how" you do it.
Sometimes I dream of any other new spaces, where video will have more values than music,
because vj's work is much more difficult than dj's work and we deserve it ;)
Q: Your personal famous last words?
A: Music it is possible to look
Q: Who should be the next VJ for told:by interviewsession?
A: There are a lot of interesting vj's in our world.
It is interesting to me to read interview to any vj. Thanks!

Retina Error @ Brooklin Bowl

Time to be a little bit proud of my own stuff. My video "Retina Error remix of 'Vectorloverz' (Devon Miles) feat. Alec Troniq 'I'm the foolaloof' (agaric remix) [Broque056]" that I posted to the Vimeo Group Eye Candy For Strangers has been chosen as an official selection! The videoremix will be presented Saturday, December 12th, at the first Vimeo meet-up at Brooklyn Bowl. So thank you Devon that you asked me to do this remix for you. As far as I reviewed the other videos I really have to say go and watch some of them.. There are some really great works at this evening.

3D Mapping

Here is a beautyfull piece of 3D motiongraphics mapped on buildings... I just love to watch... I really need to make a mapping by my self next year... just enjoy!

Sunday, December 6, 2009

told:by Lotte_Z

Q: Where does you'r Artistname come from?
A: LotteZ is my first name (Lotte) combined with the first letter of my surname (Zuydwijk).
I started out VJ'ing with a different name; Jetty Kiz, which is short for 'Would Jetty Kiz?', which is an anagram of my full name. My friends advised me to stick to my real name, because they found it confusing, so I did.
Q: What discribes your VJing style the best?
A: I always find it difficult to describe my 'style', because you do what comes natural to you.
I make stylistic decisions on things that are not always very artistic or stylistic. My visuals tend to be based on a dark background. One of the reasons why I do that is that I like to use a lot of layers in my visuals, to keep them new and exciting.Using a lot of black in your visuals makes it easy to key out elements.
Also I believe it is very important to be friends with the light- and laserartists of an event.
That way you can all become a team, create visual synergy and consider the general atmosphere of a night.
If your visuals contain a lot of light, it is very easy to kill the atmosphere; people generally don't like to dance in very light spaces. I'd rather build up my light output by layering my visuals during the night. But another thing that would desrcibe my style is high contrast, flow and raw themes combined with serene and natural elements.
Q: Location/Act you ever want to do visuals for and why?
A: It would be an absolute dream of mine to do the live visuals for The Prodigy. I have been a fan since their first album; I even had a teen crush on Keith Flint. So yeah; that would be awsome! But in general I really enjoy it when I am booked as a stage act and interact with the energy of other live performers. I recently teamed up with three other girls as a VJ-/performance-act.
We are called Geeks on Heels and we are always booked for our interaction with the DJ's, musicians and audience. It is so much fun to be out there, have fun, abuse equipment, go crazy and to get a direct response on that from people.
Q: Your personal famous last words?
A: Life is like a dance
Q: Who should be the next VJ for told:by interviewsession?
A: Ask my girl in crime Polly Pastis, she's crazy and fun.

Whats going on with the promoters?

It seems that some promoters just going back in there developement. All I see at events this days are bad adjusted projetions out of the box. They even never heard something about keystone and imagequality.
It's just pain in my eyes to see that. So if you don't wanna spend the fee for a decent vj than just turn the beamers off. It's better if there is nothing projected than showing crap! And yes, I know 90% of the guests just don's pay attention to the screens... at least not active. but some will and they talk about it. It's just a bit of an extra eyecandy... but I like it a lot!

And now just a nice and creative new week to all my readers.

Ebony Club Installation by Pixelschubser

VJ Pixelschubser from Mannheim just working at a installation at the ebony club. here are the first official pictures. would like to play there once.. looks cosy... nice job benjamin...

told:by Kyle Lyons

So here comes the next one. We all know him allready from Kyle Lyons. Enjoy!

Q: Where does your Artist name come from?
A: Currently I use my real name when I perform.  Originally when I started performing at raves and Psytrance parties 10 years ago I used the name "VJ DMT" which was my acronym for Digital Media Therapy but it is more commonly known as Dimethyltryptamine a naturally occurring tryptamine and powerful  psychedelic that is often found in plants but also in the human body.  Back then this was a very interesting topic for me.  I think the psychedelic culture and VJ culture complimented each other on many different levels so I wanted to give people the impression that my work was the most powerful mind blowing visual experience but I’m still working on that :P
Q: What describes your VJing style the best?
A: Right now I work a lot with stop motion & timelapse photography. So my work is very organic and real.  I don’t have the classical 3D or 2D animation training so I rely on photography and some video.  In the last few years I have been studying After Effects and Particle Illusion to get more into motion graphics and animation.  I think 3D will be my next mountain to climb.
Q: Location/Act you ever want to do visuals for and why?
A: It’s always been my dream to travel to Asia, even better if I get the opportunity to VJ there.  I just got back from a 5 week tour of Malaysia and Indonesia so I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to do visuals and travel there.  The visual artists there are very dedicated and hardworking.  I think my next goal will be Japan, Korea or China but I also have my eyes set on South America.  I enjoy working with local acts in the countries I visit because they have a lot to offer visually.  You pick up new techniques and ideas.  It's a great way to share knowledge.
Q: Your personal famous last words?
A: The world is your visual playground.  Go explore, document, capture, film, photograph, edit, cut and produce what makes you happy.
Q: Who should be the next VJ for told: by interview session?
A: Dan “Dubassy” Talson who has been a big inspiration for my own work.

Metropia - A film made in After Effects

Hey friends what's up today?
I hope you all had a nice weekend. I had that's for sure. Anyway just found a nice trailer of the Film Metropia and just asking myself how was it done. After a pretty short session at my favorite search engine I found out about it. It's made completly in my weapon of choice After Effects. It's a bit of 2D, 3D and some photorealisitk film. I like the look Isak Gjertsen and his team created with a 3 million Euro budget. It's worth having a look on it. trust me.

told:by Devon Miles

A: Devon Miles is the boss of Michael Knight aka Night Rider. Devon is a distinguished old gentleman with gray hair, driving around in a van full of video equipement. pretty much like me...
Q: What discribes your VJing style the best?
 A: iconographic, identifiable vector graphics mixed with camera footage. a balance between art and entertainment.
Q: Location/Act you ever want to do visuals for and why?
A: I would like to play at burning man, well, because Its probably one of the last adventures after Kazantip. then I would like to do the visuals for MUSE because they are the only Rock music artists I listen to and I think my style would match theirs pretty good.
Q: Your personal famous last words?
Q: Who should be the next VJ for told:by interviewsession? 
A: VJ Syru

Great Musicvideo of Depeche Mode by Eric Wareheim

N.A.S.A: Tom Waits and Kool Keith “Spacious Thoughts”

When it comes to animated musicvideos this on is pretty much what I call well done. Not only the motion design itself no the music is also great. So watch it...


Just got a link via twitter to this short and clean but well done video. I like it and I share it with you. Respect! It's done by two brothers, I wish my brother would be into sound as well.. ;)

Anyway it's just a pitty that the 2012 effects are not explained in detail but if you are in to cg and compositing than you find out...

Monday, November 16, 2009

Pay the writer... or any creative worker!

Just found in and think it's worth to be mentioned here as well. Cause it's always the same with the creatives. Do this and that for free but you'll bee reconized by public... Damn, no way. We all do a more or less good job and we all need to fill up our fridge and need to pay our bills. So please watch and listen carefully.

Short Clip by Gruppe E from Berlin

And another clip I like. It's from Gruppe E. Berlin based with a residence club in Dessau. Not that far away from me but still didn't managed to go to this club... But anyway I like the stuff they do.

Who did (rmx) - Consistent / Das Kraftfuttermischwerk from e on Vimeo.

Civilisation from Hell to Heaven

I saw this nice piece of animation a couple of months ago. It was mentioned at a german magazin. Now I just found it again. It's a compositing out of hundreds of moviefiles done in After Effects. It's done for an elevator at a NewYork based hotel. Hope I'll have the time to make a visit there next year...

Visualisation Festival 2009 #2

Just missed to post the trailer for the upcomming Visualisation-Festival.

told:by - VJ Wunderkind

Q: Where does you'r Artistname come from?
A: My Pseudonym has 2 origins. 1st it comes from my wife's favourite film "Wir Wunderkinder." The second reason is that I wanted a German word that English speakers would understand.
Q: What discribes your VJing style the best?
A: I guess it's kind of hard to describe my style as I'm in the middle of making a change. But if I had to give a short description, it would be simple and clean, maybe even minimalistic. That's because I don't want to end up having a total chaos on the screen. Neither do I want to cause epileptic shocks by changing too fast. So I keep it rather slow and simple.
Q: Location/Act you ever want to do visuals for and why?
A: Hmm who would I like to do visuals for... Tough one. I love Massive Attack, but UVA have done a fine job for them already. I think in general I'd like to get more into stage and light design and it doesn't really matter what act it is because I find new situations challenging anyways...
Q: Your personal famous last words?
A: I'm not the DJ...
Q: Who should be the next VJ for told:by interviewsession? 
A: My favourite VJs are Steve Gerges (fuusmuus/ visual delight), Toby *spark (who actually made me choose VDMX) and 100s more. It would be cool if you could talk to Kyle from vjloops. He's a really great guy and really good VJ, too.

So long you can contact VJ Pixelschubser for your submission or further questions:

B-Side is tracing these jewels that are prospering out of the limelight. B-Side risks a second look and does not refrain from placing the needle on the grooves that have gone unnoticed.
This non-commercial festival deals with all varieties of modern visual arts, explores media intersections and opens up new perspectives, a different way to look at new trends and developments. Video art, computer art, interactive projection and light design are the cornerstones of this event, discussions, lectures and workshops will complete the offering.

told:by Retina Error

May I introduce you to a series of small interviews with other vj's around the globe. The basic Idea behind is to start interviewing one with just 5 questions and a link to his demoreel or website and whatever belongs to him or her or them. The questions are allways the same and the last question gives you a hint who'll be one of the next vj's featured at this place. I hope you enjoy this and makes you come regulary to my blog.

The first one in the row is me just because someone has to start.

told:by Retina.Error

Q: Where is you'r Artistname come from?
A: It's just because of my left eye. there is indeed an error at my retina. In fact I cant see all the nice 3D movies and I have a really personal name that belongs to me. That's the story behind.
Q: What discribes your VJing style the best?
A: I'd say its a mix between abstract visuals and a few real movies I made by my self. Mixed absolutley live and with passion at my deck. Before that I just grabbed all I could find on the net.
Q: Location/Act you ever want to do visuals for and why?
A: MELT! open air. Just because It's my favorite since his beginning in the late 90's
Q: Your personal famous last words?

A shorty for the night..

I like the look and feel of this oneshot movie. Just found it in Vimeo and had to share. greetings to Sofia...

Yesterday at Druckbox in Leipzig

Hey everybody,
yesterday I went with a friend of mine to the club Druckbox located in Leipzig. Strange things happend there...
I felt like it was 1994 or somthing like this... it's a pretty dark club just strobes and a laser beam and fog, fog and again fog. just like it has to be at staight techno partys. The lineup was also pretty nice with Norris Terrify and Reche&Recall vs.NDK and some more. But the strange thing is that the 2nd floor was just used for a dance evening for lets say older people. Candlelight and waiter service and a DJ playing Fox and moderating the evening.. guess what? Yeah... smoking area was outside so the old ppl and the hardtechno freaks both went outside and some of each just showed up at the opposite floor.. strange. 1.30 a.m. in the night they even did not close the floor but instead they rebuild it cleaned a tiny bit and made the big floor just smaller. after half a hour it was a minimal tech floor... without fog and just one scanner... strange.. really strange.

Last time I've seen sort of that was 1999 at Flux Club in Amsterdam for the Six in the Mix Tour of Sven Väth.

Testing Resolume Avenue

Here we go folks,

Last week I become a betatester for a new beta of Resolume Avenue and after some crashes (driver problems) avenue is quit stable and it feels really good. it's fast in my point of view. my testing machine is a 2 years old core2duo with a GeForce 8600M GT.

The Framerates are pretty well around 40 to 60 a second. the only problem that now I'm going to buy it so I have to remap all my midisettings in my live setup and because of the nice audiofeatures I think I'll find a producer to work with or I try to make some music to become a audio/video artist. but that's out of question for the moment. I'll give it a try for the next two or three weeks an dann I've got my x-mas... so Bart and Edwin.. prepare a a boxversion for me... I think just like the interface pretty well designed. Here you will find all the features just to much to write here and I guess most of the vj's already know about it.

hope to have you guys another couple of years making such a nice software...So I'm going back to play around with it and write my results 

Hello World!

Welcome to my new Blog. Here I'll post from now pictures and videos from vj performances and light or videoinstallations. You'll find interesting eventtips and in general stuff that belongs to video, graphics and motiondesign such as tutorials for after effects or trapcode or photoshop... so that's it for now guess we'll read us. chees
