Last weekend VJ recap (Sonic Beating, Together Festival, TedX Somerville)

Lots of things are rolling into motion from this weekend!

-We are planning to fully announce this soon, but I once again will be creating the Together Festival VJ Competition. Very excited about this and already we have a great team setting up for this unique event. More info to come with this, but I already know this will be a huge event!

-Started working on a project for TedX Somerville, and while it is still in the earliest stages, this may lead to a huge project. Already happy to be working with them!

-This last weekend was a private Sonic Beating party, “Eye Heart Brains”. It was a blast and I got to vj with my copatriot Dj Anya. We had a ball, packed the place and had an most unbelievable time! Some shots of it below.

 

All in all it was an amazing weekend and the next few months will be chock full of incredible projects and events. With the on rush of warmer weather I can only imagine it will get better and better!

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.

Modem video out

I was lucky enough to be part of a truly amazing festival this summer, MoDem in Croatia. I worked the amazing Italian based Deltaprocess VJ team to light up the massive main stage and chill areas for a solid week. The mapped stage was huge and, along with the other incredible deco, made for a most mind shattering week of psychedelic trance.

The recap video for the festival has finally come out today, and of course the VJ team is highlighted! If you want to skip to it, after the 8 minute mark is when they start to focus on the visual content, I even have a cameo.

Check it out, it is one thing telling people about an event like this, but it is another to show them. Later when I have the time I will update with my own videos, pictures and stories. Until then enjoy the recap!

 

(and as always, check out my whole travel blog as I update it through the countries I went through this summer!)

Final days to submit for the VJ competition!

It went so fast! Once again, this years VJ competition is in full swing. The last day to submit an entry is Sunday at midnight!

We already have some great entries, but I hope to get a few more in. This event is a celebration of VJ culture in the USA, which sometimes I feel is under represented. Live visual creation is an art, and there are many of us that perform this art for our own enjoyment.

Now is the time to come out from the back of the venue and show the world what you can do! We have some great prizes this year, a QuNeo midi  controller for starters, Nueromixer, Resolume, and TouchDesigner (Derivitive) have all graciously provided software as well. I can’t just wait to give out this stuff to the winners, always makes me feel good to help out my fellow visual artists.

The deadline is Sunday at Midnight as I said, and all entries will be taken and reviewed by the judges. What a group we have right the judging panel, Ghostdad (best known for the visual artist behind the Porter Robinson shows), Shawn Flaherty, a local vj and CEMI favorite and winner of the NIN video contest a few years back. Of course we cannot forget about Brian Kane, VJ legend in his own right!

I can’t wait to see who will be chosen to come out to this event. I can only get more excited.

 

Of course, come out and see the show! Show really be some amazing content being displayed.

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!

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!

Performing in NYC for RobotHeart 10/25-10/26

I am very excited to announce I will be heading down to NYCthis coming weekend to perform at a RobotHeart party.For those that do not know this legendary group, they throw massive Burningman parties from their bus. I was actually asked this year to come perform for them at Burningman, but the timing just did not work out. But luckily they reside mostly in NYC, and are throwing one closer to home.

The projection screens alone will be massive, and there is at least 5 Vjs all performing at once in the various rooms. I would highly suggest coming to check this out! Check out the event details here. Its a huge 5000+ person party and goes on for 2 full days! Let me know if you am coming down so we can meet up, the more friends, the better!

Project MUM was a great success!

We really had a great time this year, and over 500 people came to dance the night away with us.

The Djs were amazing, my slit scan project worked out really well until the computer got buggy and then only the default background was playing….which happened to be a picture of space! Perfect addition to the night either way.

 

Check out some of the video my buddy over at iflycameras.com did for us, both him and our friend Aurelio were flying around all night with their drones, surprising the dancers, delighting everyone and getting video of the night.

Project MUM was a success!

What a great party that turned out to be! Hundreds showed up and really rocked the house that night. Costumes, stickers, crazy bikes, artwork, and energy was abound! Without a doubt I want to do it again. Really had a fun time heading up the video for this one.

I ended up using a cargo van as a projector mount for one of my dual projector setups. I will admit that the mounts created with the help of directions by VJ Kung Fu really showed their worth this time!

Special thank you goes out to SCUL, the (Djs Cosine Zero, Keith Matter, Fig) and VJ Serialcrusher for the visual reinforcements!

Check out some pictures Here. More to come when I get more pictures lined up.
