I am excited to announce that I will be performing April 17th, at the FITC Kick Off party.  I will perform 3 sets throughout the night, accompanying the musical performances of HADI. I am in the process of building the show, but I hope to include both my original rendered video works, and a number of generative compositions.

tcpipbridge3

Over the past few months, I have needed a few extras from some of my interactive media projects.
Since most of my work is done within the Isadora media control software, I started looking for ways to add features to the system in an easy and extensible fashion.
Python being a fast and powerful language; as well as, a language I enjoy working in seemed to be a natural option for creating features.. but how to integrate it with Isadora.

korg nanokontrol2 midi control

The Korg nanoKontrol2 midi controller is a popular, low cost, portable midi controller that is perfect for use with Isadora.
Why? because it offers the Isadora artist numerous types of controls that can be easily connected to nearly anything in Isadora, and since Isadora supports up to 6 input and 6 output midi ports, the controller can easily be controlled by Isadora.

The other day I quickly posted to the Isadora forum about a new video sharing tool I came across.
TCPSpout by Techlife, extends the great Spout video sharing system to allow transferring the video textures over a network.
What this means, is now there is an advanced system for sharing video between computers, and operating systems.
Yes, you can now share video from a PC to a Mac, and vice versa.

ouija 1lrg

Scary, a Ouija board that spells out messages on its own.
Having used this Isadora patch a few times for the Bazaar of the Bizarre [Halloween editions], a fun alt artisan show that my clothing company Plastik Wrap hosts a few times a year.. I decided its about time I make a blog post about it.
The patch originally used a great custom plugin coded by djinoui a member of the Troikatronix forum, it worked great, but as an exercise I ported the SpiritBoard patch over to using the new JavaScript feature with an external JSON file for configuration.

Its true, most video artist working on the windows platform have been jealous of the Mac only video sharing technology called Syphon for a few years. We all heard rumors, saw threads, sites, and github pages that had the beginnings of what was aptly named Wyphon. Just a few days ago, quietly under the radar, a new project was made public, Spout. Spout is OpenGL video sharing for Windows.

Live mixing video captured via a Canon DSLR camera connected to my computer via USB. Using ExtraWebCam as the camera interface, 3 different camera resolutions are listed in the Live Feed section of Isadora. It is then a simple matter of using the correct actor in Isadora to allow you to feed the live video as past of your video composition.

White Room Event

Using a custom midi controlled Isadora show, I triggered and mixed a series of pre-developed real-time video composites. The show was designed with one common element between all scenes, a additive red bar that would pan horizontally to the rhythm of the music.
I used this red saturation as a trigger for 2 DMX par cans with red gel filters, that would activate anytime the color the corresponding side was within range.. giving the effect of extended projection reach.. or at least a larger stage space.
