VJING, LIVE CINEMA & BEYOND: BREAKING BARRIERS IN THE AUDIO/VISUAL
Back in the original psychedelic era, the first Visual Jockeys used
to drip wax on overheard projectors. The aim was to create a spontaneous
and experiential combustion of colour, movement, shape, and sound
that broke the barrier between the audio and visual domains, producing
a transcendental experience for the audience. This was also the era
of performative happenings and movements like Fluxus.
In many ways, today's VJs work with Live Cinema, getting back to the
basics of audio/visual projection: they catalyze technological advances,
exploring the space between sound and vision. These artists have developed
techniques that go far beyond the realm and comfort of the living
room ; they are creating participatory experiences in the round. Often
they additionally present this work in the form of installation at
international galleries and museums, forming a synergy between audio
and video, bathing the body in multisensory stimulation.
Live Cinema has become an artform, a new sensory language. Unlike
the predetermined visual assemblages that currently make the backdrop
for concerts, Live Cinema enthusiasts are experimenting with new and
unforeseen ways to cull a spontaneous visual reaction from live sound.
Whether it's a matter of imagining new instruments (like Randy Jones)
or building new software (like Semiconductor), Live Cinema asks that
its practitioners think of manipulation, transcendence, music, and
the multi-sensory experience in new ways, and then build the tools
they need to bring imagination to life.
