I wanted to post a few Cartoon/Animae mashups by VJ Pixalot. The mash ups kind of work one three levels:
1- The cartoon or animae. I only edit a single cartoon to make a vid. I’m not mixing up lots of different films.
2- The remix. I really like making drum n bass mixes of 80 eletropop. (more…)

VJ Pixalot Interviews Jay Smith of Livid about the new Ohm64 VJ controller

June 8, 2009

After hearing about the new Livid Ohm64 VJ controller, I wanted to get the scoop straight from Jay at Livid. It seems that the laws of supply and demand affect VJs too. In response to the increasing sales of Ohm VJ controller to DJs, Livid Instruments has gone back to the drawing board with the Ohm64 controller to address some midi functionality/ programmability issues to make a more DJ friendly device. ( not that VJs haven’t also been complaining about the Ohm’s lack of midi mapping for a while.) What do you think? Are the DJs stealing our toys or are we getting a better device??????

Pixalot: How did you modify the design to better cater to musicians?

JS: First, we extended the grid to 8×8, since so much contemporary and popular music is anchored on some relative of the number 8. Next, we discarded any labels that implied some pre-determined use, as the original Ohm was labeled in accordance with functions of our Union software. We expanded the number of knobs to create more of an eq-friendly layout. Finally, all the controls can be remapped to send a variety of messages – this programmability is pretty essential in accommodating the diverse uses of equipment in music production.

I caught up with Eric Dunlap and Holly Daggers of “Forward Motion Theater” VJing for Code9 and Dub War’s show in NYC’s Financial District.
In the video I get the VJs to break down their rig and explain their creative prep for the show. Other than the sound system SUCKING!!!! DJs and VJs put on a great show.

I spin Code 9 tracks myself and tried to compose something that had the dubstep flava that night. Poison Dart anyone?
