Hi! I'm Jaymie, a developer with Team Vuo and a collaborator in the music/theatrical collective known as Project Ruori. Last week, Project Ruori put on a show at the electro-music festival and used Vuo to create visual effects. It was the first time, ever, that a Vuo composition was used in a live performance!

Project Ruori — in the form of Steve Mokris, the leader of Team Vuo — performed an original composition of minimalist electronic music and visuals. He used music software called Renoise to create the music, and hooked it up to a Vuo composition to create the visuals. The Vuo composition displayed a green grid, and it reacted to the MIDI notes of the drums by rippling or twirling the grid. The composition was a simple arrangement of a handful of nodes, and it ended up creating some amazing effects!

Soon, Vuo will be making its debut to our community of subscribers with the first beta release. (Check out our roadmap for details.) If you purchase a subscription before the first beta release you'll become a Vuo Founder, which includes some nice perks like a free Vuo Founder T-shirt. We need your support to keep Vuo going — subscriptions are our crowdfunding! If you're already a subscriber, thank you so much! And if you liked this, please share it with your friends and collaborators.
