Cyclotone (2012) by Paul Prudence

This new piece by Paul Prudence takes conceptual cues from cyclotrons and particle accelerators and alludes to aspects of particle physics, space exploration and 4-dimensional space. It is inspired to commemorate the first wave of Russian cosmonauts and also the artists of the Constructivist movement who conquered space conceptually.

McLaren P12 Teaser ‘McLaren vs Aerodynamics’ by MLF

McLaren approached MarshmallowLaserFeast for a teaser for the launch of their new car, the P12. Initially the job revolved around projection mapping, to project on (a model of) the car, something the MLF team wanted to avoid. Working directly with the McLaren team, the MLF team created this fascinating 60 seconds clip created using a combination of 3d animation, […]

A levitating sound sculpture made of 300 wires – David Letellier’s Caten

Caten (2012) is the latest kinetic sound installation by David Letellier, Berlin-based sound artist, audio-visual performer and CAN regular. Site-specific to Chapelle du vieux St-Sauveur, a 12th century Gothic chapel in Caen (FR), Letellier sculpted a delicate veil of 300 thin wires, filling the historic site with a magical epiphany. Suspended from two ropes, each […]

Kulbuto [Quarz Composer, Sound]

Created by Émile Sacré, Kulbuto is an installation and an instrument, exploring possibilities of non-uniform compositions by both visualising what is being created and using the visual content as the driving force behind the rhythmic cycles. The formal outcome of Kulbuto is based on principles of changing rates, determined by graphic collisions at speeds. We are facing […]

Parhelia [vvvv]

Parhelia by Paul Prudence is a real-time A-V performance piece where sample based mechanical sounds are used orchestrate a family of concentric forms in space. The vvvv scenes suggest the workings of a imaginary machine where its component parts, or ‘gears’ interact with one an another triggering corresponding sounds. Parhelia uses direct translation of sound to […]

Hexagrama [vvvv, Sound]

Created by Lasal, graphic programmer, designer, VJ and computer artist based in Berlin, Hexagrama explores the quality of time and how the geometrical coincidences change our perception of the musical composition. Running in realtime, Hexagrama was created using vvvv with midi data send to Usine. All geometrical occurrences are preprogrammed. “Hexagrama explores the geometrical properties of sacred geometry.” Other […]

Partitura [vvvv, Sound]

Created by Abstract Birds and Quayola, Partitura is a custom software for creating realtime graphics aimed at visualising sound. The term “Partitura” (score) implies a connection with music, and this metaphor is the main focus of the project. The main characteristic of the system is its horizontal linear structure, like that of a musical score. It […]
