Here’s the video for Ultraista’s, “Bad Insect” balancing glitchy visuals over a glittering, shimmering melody. “Bad Insect” is the debut single from Ultraίsta, the multimedia trio comprised of vocalist/artist Laura Bettinson and multi-instrumentalist/producers Nigel Godrich and Joey Waronker.
Founded in London in 2011 on a mutual love of Afrobeat, electronic and dance music, visual art and tequila, Ultraίsta will be putting out their first LP on October 15th, 2012.
First, Boom Bip’s DJ Set with me projecting visuals, then a view of the Vjay App which I am running on my iPad to control the central visual element.
VJ’s control view, and then club view. Controlling Vjay app with iPad multitouch, plugged in to Edirol V4 mixer and Macbook Pro ( not seen ) “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”
This project combines the collective talents of musicians, dancers, programmers, designers and animators to create an amazing visual instrument. Creating music through motion is at the heart of this creation and uses the power of the Kinect to capture movement and translate it into music which is performed live and projected on a huge wall.
We created and designed the live visual spectacle with a music video being produced from the results. We wanted it to be clear that the technology was real and actually being played live. The interface plays a key role in illustrating the idea of the instrument and we designed it to highlight the audio being controlled by the dancer. Design elements like real time tracking and samples being drawn on as they are played all add to authenticity of the performance. The visuals are all created live and the music video is essentially a real document of the night.
Check out the tech behind the project here:
Gated communities are accepted fictional living forms of the big cities. Most of the families want to live in a secure and well-prepared constructions with active social possibilities. The construction have also been designed for new communication ways and privacy limits of the visitors. Technologies and eco-friendly approaches in daily architectural visions direct urban planners to add really simple and effective designs on whole area. Taking all this into consideration; gated communities convert all this parameters into a reliable social networks with a specific design path.
NARKULE (narkule.com.tr/) is located at the top of Narcity, which is designed by Nevzat Sayın (nsmh.com/). Their first public housing project has a major public building now. Story of our performance is built on facts behind the curtain, such as energy of life and abstract links of the buildings. We covered walls / stage floor / stage background to project our visuals on it. NARKULE, its trade center and C Block of Narcity built by architects as a 1/50 models. We synchronized and projected our visuals on independently mapped 5 different surfaces at the same time.
