Live Visuals update

In the last several months, I've been shooting original video and manipulating it through Modul8. One of the projects I am compiling my live VJ set for is a collaboration with the Montréal "psych-soul" band, Golden Isles, (formerly known as 'Crystal Moustache').

The band will be playing a live show at Ex-Centris, Montréal's premier art house cinema which decided to stop operating as a cinema this Summer in order to take a new, experimental direction and become a multimedia and live performance venue this Fall.

My plan has been to develop an immersive environment for the audience, in line with the band's live performance which they described to me as being 'psychadelic'. The band has chosen the theme for the visuals: the four elements. Over my last month in Hawaii, I shot footage of the epic natural beauty of the state's dreamy islands. As I edit down my HD footage of slow-moving clouds, thunderous waves in the ocean, and rolling pastures, I am imagining how these images will be projected in the venue. More to come!
