Fat Butcher @ Secret Garden Party

July 28, 2008

Just got in the door from SGP, furry mouth, crusty soles and all. Photos coming soon. We were praying for rain by the end of Saturday. All available shade was packed tighter than a suitcase with hungover revellers (dehydration was rife; there were about 5 taps to provide water for 125,000 people – sort it […]

Resolume Avenue 3.0 Release Imminent

July 25, 2008

Details of Resolume Avenue 3 features are hatching out of this site like flying ants in a London heatwave. Resolume is a brilliant software package for triggering live visuals; a bit dense and dry to the uninitiated but very practical and visual once you’re accustomed to the interface. The most exciting feature for me has […]

Secret Garden Party 2008

July 22, 2008

Fat Butcher will be taking over a corner of the Secret Garden Party this weekend, providing visuals in another big top, this time the all-new Valley of the Antics stage. My set is on the Sunday night so I’ll be having a wander round on the Saturday and hopefully catch Grace Jones as I missed […]

Radiohead/House of Cards

July 14, 2008

Just a quick one………………………………………………. Trend-buckers Radiohead have released a video made without cameras or lights. You can download the data and play with it yourself here. It’s also well worth having a look at the Making Of to see how the technology works. The potential of this sort of scanning system in film and visuals […]

FOUND: MISSING METROPOLIS

July 4, 2008

Exciting news about lost portions of Fritz Lang’s landmark film Metropolis turning up in Argentina. This was the first film I started taking images and shots from when I began VJing and occasionally Maria and her gynoid doppelganger turn up at shows like Bassline and Interzone. Metropolis has to be seen to be believed – […]

Hed Kandi Summer Mix

July 3, 2008

Spent a week in the MoS-TV last month animating scenes for the new Hed Kandi Summer Mix CD. This one was somewhat more elaborate than the last HK spot, which involved only one scene reworked for several shots. The concept of this one, worked up by art director James Worsely from illustrations by regular HK […]

Peter Greenaway, Last Supper Installation

July 2, 2008

So I read in the Guardian that Peter Greenaway was invited to create an AV installation to promote the newly-restored Last Supper by some da Vinci bloke. Greenaway’s messed around with VJing before; at last year’s onedotzero he premiered a piece that explored screen-in-screen technique and suitcases. With this piece the concern was that he’d […]

Fat Butcher @ Glastonbury 2008

July 1, 2008

Can’t believe it’s over already! Three of the most enervating and exhilerating days of my life just rushed past and the mud’s still caked to my feet to prove it. From Friday to Sunday afternoon I stood in the epic blast of MGMT, Winehouse, Vampire Weekend, Roisin Murphy, Ladyhawke and CSS and loved every second. […]
