Check out the amazing live audio visual performances by SUBHAZE Studio, using MadMapper!

In collaboration with musicians and engineers, the 2 founders create immersive and gorgeous AV live performances in various venues.
And they do create awesome installations as well!

 

“SUBHAZE is the collaboration of composer Ricardo Romaneiro & visual artist Christian Hannon exploring the connection between sound & light in various media.
The project explores electronic soundscapes with classical techniques, performance and multimedia design.

 

 

 

 

Together they create immersive concerts and installations with an array of artists & venues creating an audiovisual experience that transcends the traditional forms of presentation.”

Dear users,
We’re pleased to share with you this new tutorial about the miniMAD,
In which we show you how to set up a video wall using 28 units!
The video also includes the step by step process commented by Pierre who’s in charge for the miniMAD’s development.

A lot of improvements are coming soon for the miniMAD by the way!
Stay tuned for the next MadMapper v4 version, which be released by the end of this year (hopefully),
Also, with the new Raspberry we do hope as well to offer a new, upgraded version of the miniMAD product in the future (but that will require a lot of work and hard-testing).
Until then, enjoy this tutorial!

Take a glance at the amazing lighting installation by Cosmopop & VEM Visionemotion for the Time Warp 2019 !

They succeed to exploit the huge floor 7 of the famous festival by creating a massive setup :
No less than 5 488 LED slices were used, which represents 38 760 LED pixels for 228 DMX universes.
They used MadMapper on 2 computers for the pixelmapping and another computer was running MadMapper for vjing with live generated content
(Plus content distribution over NDI and 28 MADRIX nebula)

Pascal Bach from VEM who was also the light and visual operator, kindly shared with us several screenshots of his MadMapper MADLight’s settings :

Tremendous job !

SONPENDULAR is an audiovisual concert with immersive projection mapping by artists Sergio Mora-Diaz, Marco Martinez and Andrea Gana, which takes place inside the Church of El Carmen Bajo de San Rafael in Independencia, Santiago, Chile. The temporary intervention makes use of projecion mapping, lighting and live music to reactivate and resignify this religious heritage building, in disuse since 1958.

 

The project is an aesthetic research about time and space, which invites the viewer to a ritual of light and sound, rich in geometric patterns and audio in real time. The sound consists of ambient electronic music, mixing sounds from field recordings and original compositions performed using Ableton Live and analog synthesizers.

 

The visuals display geometric and generative patterns designed in real time using Madmapper, Modul8 and TouchDesigner, seeking to enhance the architectural elements of the building. These compositions refer to cyclic patterns and pendular movement, generating intense immersive atmospheric states.

The artists behind Sonpendular are Andrea Gana in live music, along with Sergio Mora-Diaz and Marco Martinez in the real-time creation of visuals and immersive projection mapping, produced by Delight Lab and Chincol Producciones. The piece was first performed in July 2018 and later in January 2019 with the collaboration of guest musicians Tan Levine and Mariana Olivares, adding gongs and percussion to the atmosphere proposed by the original piece.

After having mapped, among others, the Berlin Cathedral or the Centre Jujol-Can Negre in Barcelona, the artist Sinoca has now used MadMapper again to create an amazing experience called Kubrick’s Odyssey 2019 : a pioneering audiovisual mapping experience that has never been made in a cinema before.

The -unpublished- immersive video mapping created by the musical composer Roger Subirana and the visual artist Silvia Isach (Sínoca) is inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ film.
This new show activates sensory stimuli thanks to the fusion of sound effects and music with images on two surfaces, the screen of the cinema and the monolith, creating a 3D space.

OPUS is an audiovisual performance collaboration between 1024 architecture & Tovel that took place last June in Paris, combining classical music with electronical distortion and rythm along with an immersive digital-architectural landscape that morphs and distorts with the sound.

A voyage to Italy, a romantic dream in the digital era composed by Matteo Franceschini who is joined on stage by the Italian string quartet Quartetto Maurice and by IRCAM’s acoustician Manuel Poletti at the forefront of sound research. The young composer crosses all aesthetics, classical composed chamber music combined and distorted with experimental electronical rythms and sounds.

By taking thousands of pictures with drones, 1024 architecture used photogrammetry software to create the digital 3D scans of architecture and the natural landscape of Sicily. These digital structures visualized with millions of particles in a void space that are then manipulated, distorted and morphed together to the music, generatively programmed with 1024’s and partner garageCube’s own coded new realtime graphics software Zonk.

You can take a look at what the show looked like on the video below,

Can we dance on contemporary music? This incongruous question of Matteo Franceschini encouraged him to push the form of the “classical concert” towards the “dance floor”. Beginning as an evening of chamber music, OPUS gradually transforms the musical and visual narrative, dreamlike and theatrical into a pure electronic scene. In this creation, the string quartet, an iconic genre of scholarly music, interacts with technological devices, creating a constant interaction with video and light. The photogrammetry technique makes it possible to scan and compose real images – in this case the unfinished constructions of southern Italy – from very different points of view. This 3D virtual scenery will be directly modified by the vibrations and distortions of the quartet.

Frame Perspective is a 30m long luminous installation consisting of frames and LEDs. The natural perspective of the structure is enhanced by an organic light composition, like a breath or a wave.
Frame Perspective resonates with its environment and its scale and rhythm, creating a physical relationship and then involving the viewer in a proper temporality.

Olivier Ratsi worked on this project presented at the Constellations de Metz festival with Thomas Vaquié. Pierre Guilluy from the garageCube team also tested an upcoming feature for the miniMAD, stay tuned!

During 4 days a selection of events and activities will be presented at the Mapping Festival in Geneva to highlight the artistic potential of digital arts and digital culture. International artists and specialists will offer AV performances, DJ sets, workshops, round tables and conferences.

The full program of this 15th edition which will take place from 23 to 26 may is available on 2019.mappingfestival.com
Among the many quality events, exhibitions and performances proposed, 2 workshops in particular are not to be missed if you want to have the opportunity to learn how shaders work and how create to your owns as well learn how to build wireless LED systems!

Shader Programming Primer: Real-Time Animation and Effects with GLSL, a Leander Herzog (Switzerland) workshop proposed by the Mapping Festival, Geneva :

During this introduction to shaders, visual artist and web developer Leander Herzog will guide you through the program: its basics, tools available and its best uses. Write your first GLSL language (OpenGL Shading Language) and learn how to code your first shapes, patterns and animations in real time.

Spatializing Light: Building Wireless Systems by Michael Ang (Berlin), a workshop proposed by the Mapping Festival, Geneva :

The Internet of things is in the spotlight. By building and controlling LED wireless lighting systems, the engineering artist, Michael Lang, will demonstrate how to develop lighting compositions, installations, performances and spatialized interventions. Participants will discover the creative world of the artist and be aware of new technologies and visual arts. These low-cost, battery-powered, and easily transportable systems can be integrated with Ableton Live, VJ Software or code-controlled.
