for Visual Music Artists, Writers, and Venues
A live music and graphics performance by Tim Thompson for the Music by the Eyeful series at the Luggage Store Gallery in San Francisco, January 15, 2009. Everything was performed and generated live by playing on a MIDI keyboard, producing looped music and directly generating the graphics shown on the left side. Those graphics were then video-looped and post-processed by a second computer, the results of that being shown on the right side. All the musical and visual looping and processing was done with custom software, primarily using KeyKit and FreeFrame plugins.
There are three pieces in the 30 minutes - here's a list of the best times if you want to sample it:
Piece A - 5:00, 7:30, 9:30.
Piece B - 13:50, 15:20, 16:20 (best), 18:30.
Piece C - 21:15, 22:00, 22:50 (pans down to show equipment), 24:30, 26:30.
The recording is out-of-focus, sorry about that, but it's good enough to give a good feeling for what it looked and sounded like. Make sure you view the high quality version, at least.
