Merge Factory Perspectives 17 performance

Last month, I produced a show with my multimedia project Merge Factory for GENBAND Perspectives 17. From live visuals to chapman stick to violin to speed paint to a Brazilian samba line, this was a great fun show! Here are the highlight videos.

Let's Move To Dance Daft Punk Bowie video remix and painting mapping

Projection mapping of paintings of Daft Punk and David Bowie and an
audio/video mashup of David Bowie's "Let's Dance" and Daft Punk's "Lose
Yourself To Dance" Simone remix.
The paintings are from last
week's Merge Factory live visual show for GENBAND Perspectives17,
featuring JessGo, which are mapped and combined with a music video remix
of the 2 artists with the addition of stills and hyper lapses of the
paintings (with emotimo spectrum) and several layers of mapping. An
ambitious project and experiment that came together nicely and recorded
in a single take!

first VR 360 live visual performance videos

This is the first couple of VR videos I've done with the help of my good friend Toby Rosen and recording a couple of live visual performances in my studio using a Z-cam.

This first video is a live visual performance along with projection mapping of a painting by the great artist, Ali Sabet

And the second is a live visual performance to one of my favorite drum and bass songs called "Hydra"

Hope you enjoy watching them as much as I enjoyed making them!

progress on live chapman stick setup

My new live stick setup gives me a lot of control over sounds and triggering stems and it also confuses my 4 limbs! This is an example of the progress.

Setup includes a Roland VG-99, VB-00, Boss SY-300, soft step 2, and MainStage with MIDI guitar 2 triggering Minimonsta soft synth.

Filmed using the Panny GH4 and lumix 20mm pancake lens. Color grade using Koji color.
