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.”

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!

Kévin from Blockhouse Studios (US) kindly accepted to answer our questions,
so let’s discover the studio’s huge mapping projects and installations using MadMapper 😉

Could you present the company you work for? 

I am Kevin Winkler the Owner of Blockhouse Studios with my business partner Andy Beargie.
We started Blockhouse Studios 7 years ago in Bloomington Indiana. We started as a production company and recording studio and have expanded in to the projection mapping market. Projection Mapping has become large part of out business in the last 4 years.
We took to this projection mapping very quickly as it used every aspect of the broad skillset that Andy and I have acquired over the years.

Could you present your latest works, and the associated setups? 

NCAA IU Basket Ball Court @ Assembly Hall
For this project we used:8x 25,000 Lumen Epson Pro L25000U Laser projectors in a 2×2 configuration with stacked pairs.
Spec’d iMac Pro with eGPU AMD WX9100 Pro
Connected to Epson HDBaseT Converters to 320FT Cat6.

Why did you choose to use MadMapper?

Stable, Scalable, low-cost, always updated with new hardware compatibly, user friendly, and simple.
I feel one strength I’ve noticed is the Mad Mapper team carefully chooses which features to implement. Many of the other solutions on the market have so many options and features that don’t always work properly or make the application overwhelming to learn and navigate.
I feel this has allowed the Mad Mapper Team to focus on making every feature work as smoothly as possibly while keeping the application lightweight and powerful. In our testing the programs scales with your hardware with no issues. If you have a system that can push 16x 4k projectors with 4 High End GPUs and NVME RAIDs then Mad Mapper will push it.

How did you know about MadMapper?

Six Years ago I typed projection mapping into google and Mad Mapper came up. 

What are the 3 key-features you like the most? 

1.THE NEW CUE SYSTEM!!!
This is by far the most exciting feature added, its opened so many options for shows.
2. OBJ Import and using video files as UV
3. Spacial Scanner

If you had a (single) 3 request to improve MadMapper what would it be? 

1. Allow me to drag folders in the media browser so large projects can be more organized.
2. Bezier curves on mask
3. Keep expanding on the cue system

Thanks a lot Kevin !
