Electronic Music other: Live OO-Ray Videos
Written July 05 2009 , Tags: processing, oo-ray, live set, balls
Thanks to everyone who came to my show! The audio reactive visuals I made in processing worked well, and I managed to play a decent set. Paint & Copter were on hand to do live video mixing, and mixed some of their visuals in as well to transition in and out of my Processing sketches.
I did have some issues with pushing enough audio signal out to my video laptop, which was about thirty feet away. Next time I'll either have the video laptop closer to me, or have some sort of DI box to maintain the signal that distance.
Special thanks to timmo, who recorded video of my set, which I've posted on vimeo for everyone who couldn't come. Anyhow, it makes me excited for future shows and improving my visuals.

very awesome Ted, great work ...
Interesting visuals Ted, but a liitle to abstract for my taste.
Your soundscapes / drones would sit great over video footage of environments with or without subjects (people / objects)
with a simple narrative (different scene changes) that could be determined thru your playing, Tones, amplitude and pitch.
Using the sonic character to influence the next scene change after X amount of time..
A film thats homologous with the music because of the improvisation of your piece.
But great going T..
awesome, man. congratulations.
Thanks for your thoughts, Jaime.
I'm a little soured on using video, though. I spent 3 months working on a video like what you were talking about and I felt it really wasn't worth it.
part 4 is so sad.
this is very inspiring and promising and good. thanks, timmo and good work, roshi.
I'm still working on the visuals, I feel they are a little rudimentary at the moment, but I'm excited to improve them.
can't wait to get home to see and hear this!
thanks for sharing
In case people missed the couple of pictures I put up in the other post:
And I thought the show was really cool aside from the sound guy not turning it up more. In my opinion this stuff needs to be heard LOUD.

Well, if I'd actually remembered the power cord to my feedback destroyer, he could've turned it up some more.
