I received an energetic email from Kasumi X. Less then a year ago she adopted modul8 as her tool of choice. Even before then she has been working with the likes of Grandmaster Flash, DJ Spooky, Modeselektor, grok, the New York Philharmonic and others.
If you are in New York City in February Kasumi X will be premiering a performance using modul8 at Carnegie Hall.
Some interesting approaches to remixing classic film materials with lots of offsetting and colorful backgrounds.
In a similar vein is a post from a user named ‘nestor.’
Very economical and creative usage of original materials combined with the 3d possibilities of modul8 create a narrative through space and time. We see what looks like a monster running away from a mechanized society into a world of infinite space with dancers culminating in a multi-colored ‘flower.’ The petals appear to be the face of the artist himself.
Finally there is the work of Gabriel Valleccio with his Memoria 0100110101. Gabriel kindly posted a description of the piece on the forum:
Memory must have an object. What happens when the object of memory disappears?
“:.:..:Memoria 0100110101:::. is a video poetry installation created and performed using Modul8. Five 3D objects with different dimensions placed on a black wall, 5 simultaneous and different videos(mixed). One projector. “
“:.:..:Memoria 0100110101:::.is a Live Cinema installation which explores the transformation of our senses into objects, in mere machines that receive and register. :.:..:Memoria 0100110101: explores the neutralization of human emotions, how we substitute basic human functions with technological prosthetics, the essential dedifferentiation between an object and person.”
This video is actually an excerpt from the full performance. At the very end of the video clip are some still renderings of the installation he created for this performance involving several primitive objects.
I hope to see more such explorations in the future. As always please do not hesitate to show us what you have been doing with modul8.
