For the Long Night of Sciences 2014, with several people from the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, we put together an interactive, audio-visual installation environment. It featured large video displays and live generated music, which the visitors could interact with. Here is a video output from the generative simulation and visualization … Continue reading A/V Installation “Data Meditation”
The dream state is a recurring theme in electronic music; now nebulo has taken a stab at it. His last double album (Castles/Basements), which was released just last year, makes him an unlikely candidate for this style - but he quite masterfully puts his own mark on the form. His new album "Akzidens" will be released on … Continue reading nebulo – Akzidens (Album Review)
A music video produced for Moevalith's release 'Loophole', appearing on Sven Wittekind's label SWR as its 51st release. The inspiration for this video came from NASA recordings of solar flares, which Moevalith showed to me. A major advancement in my cinder-based software now included GPU-based shaders for effect rendering, as well as a studio mode, … Continue reading Music Video: Moevalith – Loophole
The past weekend, my partners Nina and Axel from LNA Collective and me showed our immersive and interactive installation zygote for the first time at the 2014 edition of the Chromatic festival. On Monday, I had the chance to take George and Jason from Nomad Live TV for a tour of the immersive exhibit, which … Continue reading Video Tour: Chromatic Immersive Exhibit & Zygote
http://vimeo.com/93027542 Luftschloss - an electronic music producer from Berlin, whose craft is developed past his relatively young age - has addressed me about visual work for his Nature by Numbers EP almost a year ago. He saw the biological and mathematical background of my work, which apparently spoke to him. We talked a lot about … Continue reading Luftschloss: Self-propelled Particles (Official Music Video)
This is a music video work, which is representative of my use of real time simulations of physical, mathematical, and biological systems as instruments in visual live performance. The video is recorded in real time, based on direct controller inputs (not control scripts), and has not been edited or processed after initial recording. This is … Continue reading Dynamical Systems and Kinect Data as Instruments for Live Performance
I just realized what got me so hooked on Castles. Every single track has its own life, a fundamentally different substance. Still, they are all very finished and polished to near perfection. Thought out. Even better, they all make sense together. I would call this 'horizontal integration'. There is also vertical integration. From the smallest … Continue reading Review: nebulo – Castles.
