Real Time Data Reactive Visuals:
As the Sound of"Lakker" (the music duo I am in With Eomac) develops its sound, so too do the Visuals that I create for the AV show.
We try to create different visual shows for each different record release.
For more info see this feature on the Touchdesigner Blog.
Below is a feature Fact magazine did on our Tundra AV show we played at MUTEK: Montreal.
Lakker: Struggle and Emerge AV
During the Summer of 2015, we were invited by the RE:VIVE Initiative to create a conceptual work around the theme of the Dutch and water.
Read more about it here and see the AV show and documentary about the work and in the videos below.
The "Struggle and Emerge" AV show works by scanning lines of the Beeldendgeluid Archive Video footage and triggering processed archive sounds, based on a threshold for pixel luminescence being crossed. I build a custom scanning patch from scratch in Touchdesigner with two way communication to ableton.
You can also hear more in my "ARAD and Friends" podcast below where I talk to Gregory Markus about the RE:VIVE Project and their mission to bring together archives and artists to create new music out of and inspired by curated sets of archival material.
Then delve into the "Struggle and Emerge" documentary for the full insight into our specific project.
Currently I,m working on a new AV show for our next release here are some style frames.
