visual music collaborative

The Visual Music Collaborative was an Eyebeam Summer School Masterclass led by Eyebeam Fellow Aaron Meyers and Aaron Koblin, in collaboration with Ghostly International.

In July, eleven participants gathered in New York to spend 5 intense days creating new visual music projects. This video offers a glimpse at what transpired.

This is a visual improv I recorded to the SVIIB song "Windstorm" off of their new album Disconnect from Desire. Unfortunately, my 4 year old computer is not able to chew through video and do screen grabs at a very high framerate so it's incredibly choppy, so please don't take it as anything polished.

I created this as a student of of Eyebeam and Ghostly International's Visual music masterclass. During the week of the class, I mostly worked on new effects and expressions for my normal performance software built in Max/msp and jitter.
