Big thanks from Gardner, Xavier, and myself to everyone at the Big Chill for making this a great show, including MC Rebbe, Lisa Loco, Simon from Pioneer, Hexstatic, Coldcut, eXceeda, DJ Tom Laroc, Addictive TV, and the production crew at the Big Chill. Oh, and special big thanks to the airline pilots that came in during the airplanes piece. Wow.
Below are some pics from the show, as well as some render tests from the material which I presented.
The highlight of the night for me was when I looked to my right and there was Matt Black cutting up some of Xav’s cartoon set. That really made my day – thanks, Matt. Much love.

Over in the tools dept., we’ve now got YouTube Doubler. Finally a way to watch two YouTube videos at once.
Sweatin’ to the old school: here are some early VuJak videos which I recently found on Hi-8 tapes in my closet.
The first video is from the Digital Hollywood conference in Beverly Hills, 1994. Some friends at Interactive Light lent us an array of floor mounted infrared controllers, so we hooked them into VuJak and let people do what they wanted during the exhibit. Shown in this video is a dancer who got quicky hooked on it and spent a long time with it. Interactive Light, Inc. created the D Beam Controller, which is now integrated into Roland keyboards.
The next video is just us having fun in the studio one night in 1993. We had just gotten the system working well and there were people over for a party, so we turned on the camera. Fun stuff.
And here’s some raw footage straight out of the system from around the same time. Fun with randomness. Always liked this. Still kinda relevant. Bill was so much more fun than GW…
There’s another post about VuJak here
I’ve been playing with a game controller VJ interface for about a year, so I polished it up and used it live for this year’s Optronica show. Worked like a charm – fast, stable, and easy to use.
I’ve shown this to a variety of people, and I think it’s a great interface. Addictive and fun. No learning curve. And I’ve been user testing it with kids to make sure it works right.
This interface was made with Max/MSP/Jitter, and the hi object, and I’m running it on a MacBook Pro. It uses full res dv files and can scratch, jump, loop, and do real time effects. I have tried to build it to suit the real world needs of VJ’s. It also uses a standard usb game controller. The one I used for the show cost $10.
Kid not included.
Below is an simple diagram of the button configuration. I went through a variety of configurations before deciding on this one.
