MCD Hors série #04

May 12

C’est en cherchant un autre magazine que je suis tombé par hasard sur celui-ci, remercions nos libraires de réarranger leurs sections de temps en temps.Mon sang n’a fait qu’un tour lorsque j’ai vu la couverture, qui me rappelle quelquechose….

Musiques et Cultures Digitales Hors Série #04 se penche sur le VJing, et tente même de mettre de l’ordre dans la foule de nom qu’on lui prête (Performance A/V, Live Cinema, …). C’est aussi et surtout 50 interviews d’artistes internationaux de la scène VJ: Anti VJ, Cellule d’intervention Metamkine, CHDH, Abstract Birds et bien d’autres.

Sautez dessus, il vous le faut ! (En français Et en anglais)

Minicubes

May 12

This sketch has been inspired by minicubes by antiplastik. After adding noisy effects, it looks quite impressive. Midi controlled as always.

I can’t wait to present this live…

Eclipse

Eclipse

This effect is an old Processing sketch but is still my favorite. Very slow effet, like an eclipse in some unknown galaxy…

This effect has been used in the terrific live @ Les Atelier Claus with Sebastien Rien and noussommesquatrevingt (video at the end of this post).

Signal – Cloud4

May 08

Cloud4 by Lipsumarium

My philosophy about VJing is it should require human input. If it doesn’t, then it’s just a nice screensaver. That said, reacting to sound can be interesting, so I dived into it, and made some tries on using the sound wave, frequencies, etc…

Here is my favorite sketch so far on this topic, I’ll post others soon.

These images are snapshots of a Processing sketch I call Cloud4. The inspiration was the great skrewell. A Micro Korg has been used to generate the signal that generates the shapes. The sketch can be controlled by MIDI to modify the final rendering.

A new design for a new life

May 08

So what do you think of the new design ?

This blog is taking a new turn. With a new stunning design by Paul Marique and my head full of project, I redefine the goal of this blog: from a technical log it moves to presenting my work, my projects, finished or not.

From now on, articles will be in french or english, depending on my mood/awakness.

But hey, what is this generator meta tag ?

Some of you may have noticed that this blog is not a TYPO3 blog, but a Wordpress ! It seems like a heresy, and i’ll sure get punished for that, but who cares of my punishment anyways ? I changed platform after discovering this simple fact: it took me almost a year to figure out how TYPO3 works. It took me 2 hours to figure out how wordpress works, and 1 day to make a theme… Yes indeed, typo is a big factory, allowing anything that could be imagined and support multiple or large scale websites. But come on… you’re not making a huge site like easyFairs (one of my biggest website so far) every day. More on that later.

So, there we are, let this shit begin… will you be there ?
