Loops are Not in Any Future of VJing

Having played video loops for 8 years I never felt compelled to challenge the question if loops do actually work in video as they do in audio. Back in the years where VJing was a novelty loops where the only real means to carry a night full of video on a hard drive platter. Still it seeemed that the more loops a VJ possesed the better the performance was - the more interesting the set stayed for a long time. With my 1000+ loops at felt at times so bored even so that was pretty much the top of the amount anybody would carry (at least self produced). VJing with loops has at the moment pretty much ceased to exist. Giving way to the more elaborate forms of creativly lighting a space with abstraction. Be it mapping transforming buildings walls and 3D structures into things they are not to particle basd autonomous selfreplicating masterpieces of code that moves and morphs and dances all night with just little input and values to adjust its just not the video jockeying from which the medium itself formed. That is very much absent.
I have always said that the audience is used to a quality on screen that is so far out of reach for a normal video loops playing VJ that this alone would never give them even the opertunity to make work that can be accepted. Now fast forward about 2000 years into the future that we are now in we all of the sudden can playback HD video - multiple streams, can alter it and also can produce visual effects in the home office with budget hardware (as far as budget goes but its within reach to the normal person) that comes close to the Hollywood & TV production our eyes are trained to think are "cool looking". Well that future is pretty much now - or at least we are finally starting into that future.

guests: Ragganelli / Marinelli

A recording of the Invokation des Lichts Live Cinema Movie - in collaboration with Marinelli who mixed the fine music.
Gosh not the best recording of it - no concentration at parts - layer masks buggered - but at least VDMX stayed stable until the end.

A recording of the Parrarels Live Cinema Movie - in collaboration with _Tasmo who mixed the fine music.
Towards the end I had a memory bug in VDMX and things almost came to a standstill and also I lost my MidiControler midway through the performance - still quite okish.

Indian Timetravels @26C3 a recording
prototypen: fALk
guests: Das Kraftfuttermischwerk

Where the hackers convened a time machine was installed. It was fed with pure lovely live music by Das Kraftfuttermischwerk and out came rhythmic visuals that showed a glimpse of the past - sadly the time space continuum was a bit glitchy and so the quality of the memory dump that was supposed to record the landmark event is subpar to the actual live happening. Still worth a short watch - especially with the sensational music.

Indian Timetravels live @26C3

This year the 26th Chaos Communication Congress brings us not only Dragons everywhere it also treats us with data that traveled through time recorded in the India of 1983. It offers a glimpse of the past where religion and colonialism still reign society and the modern cities had yet to be build. Visually reedited and live mixed by proto.beamaz:fALk and musically interpreted by the wonderful Das Kraftfuttermischwerk .

We will play on the 28th of December 2009 at 22:30 in the downstairs lounge area.

fALk: 13th of June INiT Live Keynote and Performance

proto.beamaz:fALk will hold the Keynote at the Live Cinema Festival INiT Live in Toronto/Canada on June 13th 2009. He will also perform a (still) prerelease version of Kalkin:Revelation at the events showcases. INiT Live is an one day festival exhibit with food, Live Cinema, music, installations and bar camp style talks and podium discussions. It is a collaborative effort to raise awareness of the Live Cinema art form and discuss different approaches to the medium and how its future can be shaped.

Live Cinema is the attempt at an amalgamation of the semantics and sociology in cinema and vj culture. It is also happening, performance art, concert and ritual. It is closest to the artform of our earliest ancestors and their cave paintings. It connects the shamanistic ritual with the modern rock concert as well as the club night with the cinematic experience. It unites and satisfies the main senses, creates energy and feelings.
Live Cinema has the potential to bring the campfire with its storyteller, his audience and his visions for a better future funded in the experience of the past to the digital information age.
There is still a long way ahead to reach that utopian dream - that Gesammtkunstwerk. Events like InitLive & AViT help bring artists together to wander the path with all its winding curves, splitting forks, dead ends and great heights - the path that might lead us to that perfect democratic unification of media and art, message and entertainment, real life and digital worlds.
Lets explore what we have to offer to each other and the world and (r)evolutionize art and media in the process - get INIT.

There will be live twittering from the event under the #init09 tag.

fALk: 3. Juni Live Cinema Vortrag n_space

proto.beamaz: fALk wird am 3. Juni um 17:00 Uhr in der Ringvorlesung "n_space" mit dem momentanen Themenbereich "Medienkonsum im Wandel" tief in seine Theorie des Live Cinemas eintauchen.
n_space ist eine interdisziplinäre Veranstaltung des Instituts für Informatik der Universität Potsdam (UP) und der Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen "Konrad Wolf"(HFF), mit freundlicher Unterstützung des Hasso Plattner Instituts Potsdam (HPI).

Live Cinema ist der Versuch einer Verschmelzung der Semantik und Soziologie von Kino und VJ-Kultur. Es ist aber auch Happening, Performance Kunst, Konzert und Ritual. Es ist der Urkunst der Höhlenmalereien am nächsten und verbindet das schamanische Ritual mit dem modernen Rockkonzert genauso wie die Clubnacht mit dem Kinoerlebnis. Es vereinigt und befriedigt die Hauptsinne, erzeugt Energie und Gefühle.
Live Cinema hat das Potential, das Lagerfeuer mit seinem Geschichtenerzähler, seinem Publikum und seinen Visionen für eine bessere Zukunft, aufbauend auf den Erfahrungen der Gegenwart und Vergangenheit, aus der Steinzeit in das digitale Informationszeitalter zu bringen.
Dieser Vortrag beleuchtet die Aufbereitung von Inhalten sowie Produktions- und Vorführungstechniken und weiterführende Theorien aus anderen Medien und Kunstformen um dieser Utopie näher zu kommen.

Die Veranstaltung findet in der HFF Potsdam statt und ist öffentlich.
