So after a productive year on the artistic side of things I thought I'd share a composition finally. Albeit one small thing goes unfinished.
We did a performance art piece based around a labyrinth and life called Zenith Human Repair and Janitorial Services. So we had performers finding zen in everyday activities.
Sound install consisted of generative Fibonacci binaural beat frequencies being played in the space of the the High Museum in Atlanta. We wanted the same thing to be put into a headphone experience which was located in the center of the labyrinth presentation. The binaural beats just felt much better in the headphones and we wanted a random narrative voiceover along with the binaural beats to create an experience as you were listening to the performers minds. At one point we thought we were going to do generative visuals as well so I had those in the project but then at the last minute we thought it was too much with the murals that were on the walls. So we scratched it. Needless to say I loved the visuals and I want to use this project again for another performance next year with visuals.
So I recently wanted to update my portfolio with the performance, so I thought that adding a video element to the piece using random performance clips from the evening would be dope. A completely generative performance of the performance.
So here's where this Vuo project is:
Generative frequencies work, visual pictures elements all work and adjust vignette based on size. When the videos are added to the SmallTest folder in the List Narrations node, it will launch but doesn't play and causes it to crash most of the time. If you remove the video everything works as it should. I know this is something simple but alas I'm reaching out to share and hope that someone will benefit in the future by fixing, tearing apart, reusing any part of this. I also know that there is a better way to calculate/select event output/3D point to display the text. As I have 16 in my actual performance, hence my multiple select latest nodes everywhere, any help in consolidating code here would be awesome. Haha.
Love to hear/see any feedback or modifications you might make.
