Time-lapsing in Florida

I had the chance to spend one week in Florida this summer, the view on the sea was just stunning. Even more impressive were the lighthing during the night. So I made a lot of time lapses… believe it or not most of the video you see here is done by night. The pictures are taken with up to 30 seconds of exposure time:

Those are the first time-lapses I process with LRTimelapse It did allow me to correct the light variations during sunrise by example.

Time-lapsing in Tokyo

Tokyo is a fascinating place. I go there at least once a year… I am lucky. This time I could walk at night and spend a few hours taking time-lapses.

For this video I developed a few scripts to allow me to zoom and pan into a sequence.

During the editing I created the music with a set of samples based on Tokyo atmospheres. Here is the result:

Bike cruising in LA

This is one of my favourite track on the beach in LA, it goes from Manhattan Beach to Redondo Beach… To bad that you need to drive a little bit on the main street to cross the harbour in Redondo Beach but except for that it’s too nice.

Here is a video I did with my Galaxy S3:

While being at Infocomm 2012 I could spend a few hours travelling around Las Vegas, here are 2 videos quickly edited with Final Cut Pro X

This one is done in the Mojave desert in California

This one is in the Red Canyon close to Vegas

NAMM 2011 from a VJ perspective

Posted in ArKaos, Music, Music Video, real-time video, VJ on January 19th, 2011 by admin – Be the first to comment

NAMM 2011 is finished and regarding video and VJ it’s a big no show.

The music industry keep struggling to restore revenue but seems to keep ignoring that extending musician tools to allow them to create video is important.

The only company that keep saying this is Roland and they finally made MIDI Visual Control an open protocol.

Roland also introduced a new video switcher the VR-5, this is nice machine for those who want hardware solution and does not need HD.

I was amazed by this Video Guitar made by Visionary Instruments. Here is a quick video loop on how it looks like:

There was one very interesting event where I went to see that was the WHAM BAM 2011 (4th Annual) :: MUSIC CONVENTION INSPIRED FUTURE SOUND AND TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASE ::

VJ Culture is doing visuals for them and already last year he tried to get me there. Several performers were presenting there controller and explaining the technical details of their sets.

I enjoyed the presentation of Moldover, here are a few tracks I tapped with my camera:

On this you see that Moldover was using the video guitar:

It is not very often that you see clearly how a performer is using his controller. Moldover created the Mojo and asked Livid Instruments to build it form him.

This is a really cool new instrument Moldover is building, here you can see him jamming from some random peoples:

The other part I did enjoy was the Laura Escudé set, I was not expecting ambient music at this event and so it was a very nice surprise. I taped 2 tracks:

This one is 20 minutes long, YouTube now does allow me to post longer pieces and I expected to use that in the future. The start of the piece was slow and dark and so I added some light flares to the first minutes to have some slow moving visuals from the start:

I bough his CD Pororoca and look forward enjoying it.

For me NAMM 2011 was much more interesting for the meetings I had and what I forecast to do this year from there.
