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 […]

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. […]

GLASTO

June 26, 2008

Wellies, water, wipes… check. Train leaves at lunchtime and I’m weighed down with mixers and cables and fifty pence taped to my hand in case I get lost and need to ring my parents. My first major festival sets of the year, working with Bassline Circus and Pointless Productions, will be updating with photos on […]

June 26, 2008

Last night I stood in the dark and watched some phenomenal new bands blow the roof off at Monto Water Rats. Rock beasts After the Ice had approached me with an exciting comission: could I create a 30 minute set using the oil paintings of frontman Paul Lisak? Paul currently has a portrait of the […]

Lost Highway @ Young Vic

April 8, 2008

I hadn’t seen the film or heard anything about Lost Highway at the Young Vic, and until I saw ENO on the posters in the foyer, I hadn’t realised we were about to immerse ourselves in an opera. The set of this production was an inspiring feat; a perspex box suspended over a catwalk, with […]
