Being that this medium of live video is inextricably linked to the computer or electronic hardware, it also very often is closely associated with music created and performed using computers and electronic hardware. So it’s a nice change to see some visuals provided for a broad range of musical styles not bound by circuits. A quote pulled from the vimeo page of the above video provides further information about the project:
“In close collaboration with the Roskilde scenographer and stage crew a unique cave like structure was built around the stage and we set up video projectors to cover the whole surface. We also set up three remote controlled cameras in order to project live images of the performers onto the structure.
The challenge was for the VJs to accommodate to the very diverse line up of musicians – from east asian folk music to minimal electronic soundscapes during the four days of the festival.”
I especially like some of the approaches to using the live feeds within the structure such as framing the pianist with his fingers on the keys, signals that standard 4:3 and 16:9 projections are truly a thing of the past.
