Here are two concepts for my upcoming work with the National Theatre, both taking inspiration from the brutalist architecture of the National Theatre and surrounding south bank area of London. I will be providing visuals during their Connections Festival along with two other great VJ’s, Ryan and Mary.
The first concept is based on Bob’s Ganz-Graf M4L device to create audioreactive visuals. This is further manipulated with other VIZZable devices. I created four presets and morph between them using the J74 Morph devices - in this example the morphing is being controlled by an LFO, but I will control it live during the performance.
The second concept takes live video input from a webcam and downsamples it. By playing with light (covering the camera with sticky notes, casting shadows, etc) I can affect the visuals on screen. The video is manipulated using VIZZable M4L devices.
Thanks to Bob for the VIZZable Max-for-Live devices, which you can download for free here: vizzable.zeal.co
