E.B.N. Interviewed by #U2 #VJ #Skynoise

Published by John-Ryan Shea under Art, Video just recently release an interview with one of the founders of E.B.N. Zoo TV Tour by US was one of my insperations as a young man growing up in terms of how the pure definition of media was being skewed into it’s present and beautifully schizophrenic actuality. Here is an excerpt.

Hey guess what? It’s a thrill to present an interview with one of the founders of E.B.N., pioneers of audiovisual radness, and inspiration to many since way back in 1991. Yeah, those guys beaming their live video sampler performances from a bunch of TVs atop a station wagon on the Lollapalooza tour, the guys that made a video remix ‘album’ from Gulf War footage, and opened U2’s ZOO TV tour. That was E.B.N., and they paved the way for much of today’s live video. Although long disbanded, Brian Kane and the other founders, Joshua Pearson and Gardner Post, have each continued exploring various multimedia technologies ( links to each and more E.B.N. details / videos etc at their wikipedia page ). Brian’s thoughts below.

Back in 1992, you invented VuJak, the worlds first video sampler. What real-time video software impresses you today, and what surprises you about the ways video software has developed?
Ableton Live is amazing, and I also like the Pioneer DVJ line. I still use Max/MSP/Jitter because you can do so much and I have worked with it for many years. The Cycling74 folks have done a great job with Max, and Josh Clayton’s Jitter objects are the greatest thing since sliced bread. I’ve seen some incredible things done with Processing, though I haven’t used it yet myself. What interests there is Mobile Processing, I am more and more interested in mobile/handheld video applications.

VDMX Wii DVcamera Sample Technique by Moongold

Published by avicious under VDMX, Video

Just came back from Toys R’ Us with a new wii remote to test and see if it’s something we want to throw into our sets. After a little futzing with the remote to get it setup we were locked in to how fun the tunnel effect was when our Wii controlled the movement. That’s just the first step. We have lots more to develop and work on and thus you will not be seeing the Wii at one of our 2 shows this weekend. It may just end up on one of the 2 panel discussions we have though. Here is what Visualist Moongold had to say and tutorialize on the subject:

VDMX as a Live Video Loop Sampler
Here is my most recent series of four tutorials for people just starting out with VDMX and wanting to learn a little more about a real life application for the app that utilises the Wii remote.

These tutorials are based upon my recent experiences with The DIY Tour where I used VDMX and a Wiimote to capture live clips off stage, over a large number of gigs, for up to nine or ten bands an evening.
For the physical set-up I used a venerable Sony TRV890 DV camera connected by a 10mt S-Video cable to a Canopus ADVC-55 DV Converter box and thence by a short firewire cable to the firewire 400 input on a MacBook Pro.

I was one of three Vjs on the Tour along with Chris Redshaw and Trip. My live input fed into a V8 mixer along with pre-prepared clips from the Tour workshops and al fresco work by both the other VJs for all the evenings.

My VDMX set-up didn’t start out this way but was refined and tuned over the weeks of the Tour to the point that I wouldn’t hesitate to use this set-up in most any situation.

There are any number of ways of doing the same thing in different ways within VDMX, no doubt some are better than the ways I show. I would love to hear about any improvements people come up with to this set-up or changes that would improve the usability.

10.5.7 warning and PBS content release

Published by avicious under Content, Video

Create Digital Motion
Has a good warning for visualists on the new OS 10.5.7 – apparently it may be causing second monitor resolution problems for DVI outs. Not good. Also PBS has some content our tax dollars pay for available online. Grab it. Cut and twist and spit it back out in your own vision.
