The talented software-geeks at Resolume were nice enough to feature our blog about our live setup on their blog! Hope posting this blog about it doesn’t create some kind of circular reference wormhole that ruins the internet for everyone.
Resolume creates the super slick software (Arena) that we use to control the video side of our live show. Feeling pretty honored right now.
We’re going to Italy for the KERNEL FESTIVAL!
We’re one of the official selections this year. Can’t wait to perform, learn, and share with some of the world’s most talented A/V artists. June 29th - July 1st
Cyber-Hermits, Guilt, & How We Built Our New Live Show
Musicians, programmers, mappers, visual artists, and all of you other wonderful creative people of the internet, I have a confession to make. Over the last few years I have been silently climbing in your forums and snatching your knowledge up, trying to collect and hoard all of the pieces we needed to make our new live projection mapped show possible.
Fortunately, we were able to make it happen with the power of the almighty internet, the passionate communities of creative/supportive people that it connects, and your free web-wisdom.
Here’s the thing that has been bugging me though: I visit a bunch of sites on a daily basis (I owe a lot especially to the forums/blogs at Resolume, Create Digital Music & Motion, Kineme, and 1024 Architecture) but I hardly ever leave a comment, ask a question, or share anything in return. Shame on me.
In an attempt to shed some of the guilt that comes with being a thieving, greedy, info hoarding, good-for-nothin’ cyber-hermit, I decided to give a little back and put together a geek-tasticly detailed overview of how we ended up connecting and operating our new show.
Here’s a picture of our video pipeline to give you a taste:
You can read the original Google Doc in it’s full glory here or scroll through the document after the break below.
Okay, so now that I’ve fully confessed and made a small payment on my debt… I beg you, please have mercy on me and don’t take my internet connection away. I promise to be a contributing member of the interweb from here on out!
Here’s our new music video for “Apollo Repeat” directed by the Thompson Brothers at Light Forge Studios!
