Toneburst In The Wild

I’ve been doing some work over the past year or so for Nicky Smith, AKA wierdcore, who, among many other things, is in charge of visuals for Aphex Twin’s live shows. Here’s some examples of some of my QC work in use.

Note: not all the QC work in these clips with carried out by me. You might recognise a few things from earlier posts here though.

VasaRiley Belated Release

I’ve been tied up with other things lately, but finally got around to releasing the VasaRiley qcFX for VDMX I made for Weirdcore last year. I’d hoped to find time to do a quick demo video, and put together some documentation of the controls (since it’s quite complex), but haven’t had time, with other projects etc., unfortunately.

‘tb_VasaRiley_1.0.qtz’ in the Box.net widget, anyway.

Cube, Cylinder, Line Field qcFX Updated

Updated versions of some of my very early QC experiments, but this time using OpenCL instead of the Image Pixel patch, which speeds things up quite a lot. It should fall back to using Image Pixel if OpenCL isn’t available, but I’ve not been able to test that, as I no longer have a non-OpenCL-capable machine.

‘tb Field qcFX 2.0.1.zip’ in the Widget.

Long-Time-No-Post

It’s been a long time since I posted here. Sadly, I’ve been caught up in other things lately- mainly PHP and web-tinkering (I hesitate to call it ‘development’, since what I’m mainly developing is a headache).

Soo.. until I get around to doing some more QC stuff (and believe me, I wish I had time for it), here’s some old stuff I found lying around on my computer:

Making Contakt

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting Ali Demirel, Ritchie Hawtin/m-nus records‘ visuals guy. I knew he’s used a couple of my QC pieces in previous shows, and we’d corresponded in the past, but I was surprised when he invited me to a preview of their behind-the-scenes documentary ‘Making Contakt‘, at London’s ICA last Friday. We met briefly there after the showing, and he asked me if I’d like to be on the guestlist also for their show the next day. Minimal techno isn’t generally my thing (though I do remember the early Plastikman albums from my university days), but I jumped at the chance, especially with the promise of seeing some of my work in action in front of a large, enthusiastic audience.

The show was really good. Ali was kind enough to invite me into the VJ/lighting area right in the middle of the venue so I could watch what he was doing, which was fascinating. His style is quite laid-back, I’d say, with many of the pieces being quite visually simple, and relatively slow-paced, which is a nice counterpoint to the music. I like the restraint shown in his choice of largely abstract monochrome material, which makes the introduction of coloured and more obviously audio-driven pieces later on more dramatic.

And yes, a few toneburst QTZs did make an appearance. I forgot to take my camera with me, sadly, but I spotted a few things I recognised. Maybe Ali will post some clips on Vimeo sometime.
