a very late post to the gallery, 4 years too late. this was my first vvvv project and the first dome system based on vvvv.
ICH² (Me to the power of 2) is an interactive dance performance especially developed for fulldome planetariums. The performance combines expressive modern dance and 360° interactive motion graphics.
In this way ICH² is a very unique piece of the emerging genre called Digital Theatre, in which digital media technology enables alterable and imersive stage settings. Technical Setup using VVVV Fulldome Renderer.
A Cooperation of Muthesius Academy of Arts, Mediadome Kiel and Ballett Kiel, Germany.
Music is originally built for a 6-channels setup.
Video made with VVVV and Max/MSP connected via OSC protocol.
Premiered at Connect Festival, Malmö (Sweden), November 2009.
our ( www.abstractbirds.com ) new audiovisual show "Genesi" will premiere in Paris this April, during the Nemo festival ( www.festivalnemo.fr , www.arcadi.fr/rendezvous/calendrier.php?seance=245 french only).
We will have two live shows, on the 9th and the 13th of April.
The links below gives more details about the two events
Hope to see someone of you there!
A interview about Strukt will be published in the upcoming print magazine "thegap" and the unabridged version is already on their website:
Luxuriöses Licht (sorry, only available in german)
It's about mapping, media installations and the people that made many things possible. We took the liberty of mentioning a few members of this excellent community and VVVV in particular!
The article has also to do with our upcoming installation in the "Project Space Karlsplatz" in Vienna. Opening is on April 1st
The Clavilux 2000 is an interactive instrument for generative music visualization, which is able to generate a live visualization of any music played on a digital piano. The setting of the installation consists of three parts: A digital piano with 88 keys and midi output, a computer with vvvv and a vertical projection above the keyboard.
For every note played on the keyboard a new visual element appears in form of a stripe, which follows in its dimensions, position and speed the way the particular key was stroke. Colours give the viewer and listener an impression of the harmonic relations: Each key has it's own color scheme and "wrong" notes stand out in contrasting colors.
All stripes stay and overlap each other in an additive way, so at the end a kind of pattern remains – a summary of the music – which will be always unique since the notes of the composition aswell as the interpretation of the piano player are influencing the outcome. Furthermore the piano player can switch between the standart 2d view and an additional 3d view of the visualization while playing.
The Clavilux 2000 project was supervised by Prof. Michael Götte and Veldana Sehic / Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany.

‘Flutter’ is a new interactive artwork by Dominic Harris of Cinimod Studio that explores the viewer’s encounter with a rabble of virtual butterflies. It is the product of our on-going fascination with the motion of a butterfly’s flight and the iridescent reflections and scattering of light by the scales on a butterfly’s wing.

Moe (modular screen) is a light and video augmented sculpture, based on a single building element that can form an array of different, adjustable and reusable stage designs for club events and concerts. Dynamic structure that comes from the fact that elements come together at a 45 degree angle allows Moe to function well even as a standalone light object, a virtual kinetic sculpture.
This combination of a physical object and computer generated reality comes together via vvvv, a software for video synthesis designed by meso. A specific proprietary patch was built for the sculpture, using the same modular principle so that the composition of the video texture follows the thought pattern of the physical object. Every piece is textured separately, video textures are generated in real time and are input or ambient sound responsive.
For 2009. Illectricity festival in Zagreb Moe was built 5 meters tall and 8 meters wide, out of 180 elements. The entire installation cost a little bit more than 250 euro to build (just raw materials).
Moe awaits to be reincarnated in a different body.
VVVV was used in this full realtime video work to manage video and sound. VVVV was remoted in art-net by my schwartzpeter, using its abilities of cues , times and events handling, and of course light managing.
This show is a 47 minutes show, and contains about 16 very differents scenes.
It was completely created from scratch during improvisations and rehearsals. No plan, no global view of what it will be at the end.
And every scene is ovelapping the other graphically, between video caracters or decor elements. Wich means no Subpatch loading !
In this way, VVVV was fabulous, and my choice to use other tools for recording cues and playing time transitions was very wise, as a lot of things were moving from day to day, all along the rehearsals. The problematic of storing and preseting was completely exited by using schwartzpeter.
This was my very first attempt for a complete and complex show with VVVV. Next time, I will try to work with others, as developping and patch handling is somewhere killing the time in your head for artistic and creation.
But well, VVVV is terrific. Thanks devvvvs .... and thanks for the support when bugs or philosophical questions !
