Matt Black – AV tests

Posted in animation, audio visual mix, documentary, music with tags , , on November 23, 2011 by Nabil

Matt Black,  one half of the legendary Coldcut as well as one of Ninja Tunes co-founders and still one of their head-honchos, is a major lover of audio/visual technology. Black is one of the inventors of the VJamm software used in the Coldcut live shows and has been an innovator of the whole av scene. here are a couple of things that caught my attention on Black’s YouTube channel allgoodmatt

this first video was made using Memos Amoeba QC patch, adapted for realtime midi control in VDMX with audio from Ableton. using midi to simultaneously control video and audio synths makes an explicit AV connection

next up is a midi controlled AV synth with AV echo/feedback effects using Quartz composer and vdmx , with Ableton doing sound

and lastly, Matt Black and Paul Smiles give a quick demo of their work in progress, an AudioVisual marimba built using Ableton, Processing, and an AkaiMPD24

Amon Tobin – Calculate

Posted in animation, music with tags , , , , , on November 3, 2011 by Nabil

this is something i could stare at for hours, so it’s a real shame it only runs for 1 minute and 34 seconds. it was created fot the Amon Tobin fan video project by JimJam Graphics. i highly recommend watching it in full screen mode again and again and again (though i do have obsessive tendancies)

you can find more of JimJam’s work here, and about 50 more contributions to the fan video project on right here

Space Cadet is a 132-page graphic novel drawn on etchboards, accompanied by a “still picture score” composed and recorded by Kid Koala. this charming story of an adventurous space cadet and her guardian robot touches on the relationship between technology and isolation, celebrating the idea of connectivity through family, and the cycles that build generations
