I don’t think there is much that I can add to this in terms of commentary so as I do sometimes, I will let this video speak for itself.
Within our own internal realm 1024 is already using the Mad Mapper for one of their projects with the French Masters Series, in conjunction with their own Tetra.Tennis application.
For my own ends, I found it inspiring to just play around with Mad Mapper without even connecting a projector. Its kind of like a poor mans 3D stage visualization tool, but a lot simpler, allowing me to visualize ideas without an existing space.
Created for Club Vanilli in Linz, Austria, the trio assembled 3 Mac Pros and synchronized them using MIDI. Each machine is running Modu8 of course. If you can read German the full article can be read here.
It takes a lot of guess work to figure out what most modul8 users are doing with the software. I am mostly fairly busy and tracking down stuff is not part of the daily routine. Sifting through the forum can be fun but I am very picky. Recently I added (as one should if they are working in the live video) Create Digital Motion to my RSS reader. I like it in general but it is a bit on the tech geek side for my tastes. So I was most delighted to see a post with an interview with a previously unknown to me visual artist by the name of Deborah Johnson.
Besides the obviousness of the image above providing very clear evidence that she is using modul8 (and I need to mention that an out of context quote that will be near and dear to any marketing team “I think that Modul8’s an incredibly smart program”) and hence my writing about it on this blog the overall message of what Deborah does is very much in line with the type of user that modul8 was created for. Deborah is a creative person who needs something that will simply and easily display the content she creates. And I guess more importantly modul8 lets her be the star of this article because most of the article she is questioned about her creative approach to making visuals for the music acts she works with. This particular interview was done during her tour with Sufijan and her previous collaborations involved acts like Wilco.
I could go on and on about the various aspects of her approach to working with visuals and the experiences she has in touching the audience with her work but I think its best if you posted by admin @ 18 May, 2008 0 comments »
