Annina Rüst and I have finished a new demo video for Discotrope. You can see how the project’s come along and get a sneak peak of Cristyn Magnus’s magic generative sound design. And we’ve also written a little text. We’re almost ready to perform now, so if you know someplace that might enjoy some nocturnally solar-powered semi-zoetropically live audiovisual performance, please let us know!
The inimitable Fred Lakin’s proposing a SXSW panel on live-generated visual performance, called “Throwing Beam for Fun and Profit.” Fred’s invited me to be on the proposed panel – if you think we’re worthy of being picked for a panel you can pick us on the PanelPicker! Or in other words, you can vote for us on the SXSW PanelPicker.
The wraps are off Discotrope: The Secret Nightlife of Solar Cells! It’s the project that Annina Rüst and I have been working on. We’re still developing the performance, and Cristyn Magnus is composing a generative sound design. But we’ve got a website now, complete with work-in-progress video and stills. More to come!
You can also follow Discotrope on Twitter to get updates as they twappen…
Still a few rough spots to tidy, but it’s more or less up. I’m hoping the new site will encourage me to remember to update it with new info now and then. (Wonder if anyone’s written a cattle prod plugin…)
