Hexstatic @ Koko

September 15, 2008

The question hung over us all night. Do we stand and watch? Or sit and watch? The AV at Videocrash’s tremendous Koko gig this Saturday didn’t get going til 12, so we ducked out to the pub at about half 9 and ‘lowed the DJ line-up for a few. We rejoined the fun at Koko […]

Mind Yuh Business @ Dex

September 3, 2008

So this Saturday just gone Mind Yuh Business threw their 4th party at Brixton DJ hotel Dex. Nicola Pierce from Jewelspit and I collaborated on the visuals, creating a vibrant red stripe of detail that ran across one high wall and exploded in a corner, with video loops occasionally breaking out into complementary baby blues, […]

Part of the Weekend Never Dies

August 29, 2008

Soulwax seem to be one of those acts nobody can fault; effortlessly knocking out ingenious mash-ups that skim the cream off obscure classics and time-worn standards alike and teasing something entirely new out of the mix. Following up on some type-tastic promos, the artists briefly billed as 2manyDJs are now the subject of a new […]

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 […]

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 […]

Immersion Footage On Blip.tv

May 20, 2008

Some footage shot by pixelpusher at the last Immersion has been uploaded to blip.tv This is the Jones Memorandum set that Dave Griffiths and I split. Dave programs live, typing up the code for his visuals on the fly to create a cerebral and stimulating display. I kept my set quite abstract for the second […]

Interzone Footage

April 15, 2008

Finally! Footage of last month’s INTERZONE event thrown by Guerilla Zoo up on PHOTOSONICA Check it out, leave a comment. Lately I’ve been housebound, getting stuck into some studio projects for two quite exciting new clients, and haven’t done any live performance for over a week. Got a big event creeping up though, will leak […]

Dex Deux

April 1, 2008

Video of Saturday’s gig at Dex now up. The visuals aren’t that clear on the clip so I’ve overlaid a little ladleful of loops. The Dex show was another private party thrown by Jewelspit at the lounge bar of Brixton’s DJ hotel above the Prince of Wales. It was packed to capacity even without the […]

INTERZONE MEDIABELCH

March 31, 2008

Burrrrrp… excuse me, just a bit of backdraught from Friday night. Video on its way. The bands were really bizarre and banging, big beastly riffs and nasty electronic feedback. I especially liked the weirdo dress-up-and-scream-your-frackin-lungs-out collective Le Couteau Jaune who did more jumping about than playing instruments; they seemed to have most of their nutty […]
