Visualize Somerville projection mapping recap

The Visualize Somerville event was BLAST! The projections looked amazing, the art show was a huge hit and it looked like the night went into the history books. We spent quite a good amount of time working with the venues and making everything run so smoothly and we definetely had our ups and downs creating this event. I personally had some hard set backs that only were overcome by some seriously hard work from both the team and myself. In the end though, this created a most magic night. The art show next door, which will have its own photo album, was special as well, more on that in another post. This was a large event, with many hundreds of people coming to climb and just see the walls. I was bowled over by the sheer amount of people there!

So many people showed and I think everyone really enjoyed themselves. Here are but a few of the pictures, and some amazing videos and pictures are coming out later.  I would like to thank everyone that helped create this event, Brooklyn Boulders, Aeronaut Brewery, Above Summit, and all of the Vjs and Djs.

We are in the last few days before this event, and everyone involved is very excited! We are working to make this event incredible, and pulling out all the stops.

The VJ team has been non-stop rendering new content specifically for the walls, and it is looking like something out of the future. The best part? You can climb it! Check out the Facebook event here and the presales page (only $6 purchased before, $10 at the door, $25 w/o gear to climb).

Of course, make sure to speed up your entry by filling out the waiver as well.

We are planning both the projection mapped event and next door we are working with Aeronaut Brewery to bring over 40 artists into the space. There will be installations, paintings, photography, and even live art. We are very excited to bring this into the Visualize Somerville fold, and feels it helps highlight the rich nature of the local area. Of course there will be Aeronauts delicious beer on tap as well (Keep in mind to climb next door at BKB before you drink, no drinking and climbing!). Aeronaut is free entry as well.

The team can’t wait, and we are excited to see you there!

Positron at Elements this week

 

We were so impressed with Positron’s opening set earlier this year that we wanted to bring him back for a headlining set ASAP! Come rep for his first official Elements appearance and rest assured, he does not disappoint! Opening set by Fox.

New visual set tonight as well, so I am fairly excited!

Drones + Brooklyn Boulders = amazing

This Sunday I went down to Brooklyn Boulders in Somerville with a few friends. We brought out our drones and flew them all around this amazing rock gym that opened its door less than a year ago. Amazing spaces call for amazing video shoots, and how better to do that then with a few drones?

 

Below is a post that Bill of Iflycameras did a great video wrapup of some of the shots we did!

check out the video and photos!

Calyx and Teebee

Thursday is yet another HUGE night.

Calyx & Teebee are back for the first time at Elements since 2007!

These two not only put out some of our favorite music like clockwork, but they are masters behind the wheels too.

Do not sleep! Opening set by Fox. New visual set by Yours Truly.

15 years of Elements Boston

…server was down for a bit there, sorry folks.

 

-Last week played with Siouxside and Positron at Elements, very fun locals night and had a great time mixing some new content.

 

THIS WEEK!

 

This week at Elements is big! Elements is Celebrating 15 YEARS of Drum and Bass music. What a time! This also marks 6 years as a resident Vj as well, which bowls me over. 6 years of mastering my craft and countless artists coming through. Both Czargb and I will be playing that night, and I am in the works to make some custom 15 year content just for this historic night! Don’t sleep, come out and get down!

Then Elements founders Crook and Lenore take the reins along with co-resident Fox for the ritual anniversary tag. And did I mention it’s the night of a rare black moon/supermoon? Do try and stay calm. There will be several giveaways, including Zakim Recordings 12″s courtesy of BBD, and as always we will unveil brand new Elements tees!

(After) New years throw down!

 

This Thursday at Elements will be fun, it is a throwdown with many of the talented Boston Djs coming to light up the decks!

Come celebrate our entry into 2014 with some sassy new djs (new to Elements, that is) along with some vets for a sure-to-be killer throwdown!

FDOT (Point 9 Audio | MIA) aka Shawn Conte
Fes (EC Army)
Positron (Elemental Productions) aka Adam Karpf
Prez (Reset from Start)
Twist of Fate (The Mutiny)
Veloci Oscillator (Op Breakbeat | EC Army)

 

I will be on the visuals, and (if I get up in time on new years day) I will have an all new set to put on the screens! This set will be crowd interaction heavy, so come play with the video!

Om Unit at Elements

 

BIG NIGHT!

The timing couldn’t be better for a visit from the mighty Om Unit, who has taken dnb in an exciting direction this year! Among his astounding output are tunes featured on the long-awaited Metalheadz Platinum Breaks 4 LP which, according to rumors, is maybe hopefully about to drop any week now. Fasten your seatbelts! This night is going to be no joke! Opening set by Lenore.

 

This should be a great set, I am very excited to be playing for him!

Project MUM: This weekend!

It has come around again for the time of year for Project MUM! This is a very exciting event in Somerville, and one of my local favorites.

I am one mumbotof the organizers (as like last year), and we have a good amount of fun in store for everyone! This years event is over 400 people coming and will be even bigger and badder! I will be VJing, as well as introducing the world to the Slit Scan project my friend Yetkin and I have been talking about. We have been even featured in Dig Boston!
