Chipmusic • TCTD 2008 Awards

Best Live Visuals III

Slow monday is slow… but here I am presenting another nominee for the Live Visuals category.

Hailing from New York, our next nominee’s game (no pun intended) is coding software for handheld consoles (and Pure Data) to get his vision across. A balanced blend of minimal shapes, all tinted by the laws of mathematics, is his forte. This guy has also that always needed good sense for music, making all the situations on-screen tightly in sync with what’s going on on the screens. On this year’s Blipfest, he was one of the most tight visual performances, and I can also see how he’s rapidly growing int the field. Giant steps!

Having said somewhere else in this blog that he got kind of kickstarted by a talk given by The C-Men some time ago, he’s been into the chipmusic scene of New York ever since, being a frequent figure on the Pulsewave monthly night at New York as well as other events in the area, like all 3 Blip Festivals up until 2008.

Another regular lecturer in the US and Europe, “he was awarded a residency at the Experimental Television Center and created a series of video podcasts for the pioneering composer William Duckworth”. Man, all these VJ guys are serious business.

People, please give it up for:
