a great exciting time .. 2 domestic violence performances and trip to beloved suomenlinna and estonia* with a surreal ferry :D
-15 in the snowland.. tones of icey white substance.. finish sauna and some good music*
+ new people, interesting minds / places + intellectual escapades.. and our video making and field recordings, when we walked through cold streets of helsinki, climbed on the snowy windy edges of the suomenlinna island and dive in a snow…
we’ve been invited to helsinki and play with domestic violence at La Bas >> [http://www.kaapeli.fi/~labas/] – independent space for alternative theatre and performance art* and in Ptarmigan [http://www.ptarmigan.fi/en/pages/frontpage] - a space for innovative av art, electronic experiments, circut bent / arduino fans and sound adventures / little lab for performances and workshops…

January 6th, 2011
we’ve been invited to moving closer festival [ innovative music and art >>http://www.movingcloser.pl/] to make a live video mix for our dear friends – band fukalata* – [http://fukalata.bandcamp.com/]
on the 4th of december at Powiekszenie – alternative club in warsaw…
pussykrew collective did a number of videos for this project previously…
fukalata’s music is on the border of electronic adventures/neofolk/post-rock??/ambient/lyrical poetry/childish songs and your skin*
pussykrew videos and fragments of other video artworks produced by me and andrzej fitted perfectly in a light-dark glow cosmic mood of their sounds*
we used some of our previous works as well as the footage which we recorded few days before ‘moving closer’ performance.. this material was recorded for few particular songs…
[ill enclose just few still images for now from the video footage.. cause the new feature video is coming through soon and ill post it when it will be finished :]
‘slowo na niedziele’ >>
for the visuals except modul8 we also used max/msp/jitter and created a quick patch for live 3D shape animations… and different range of modifications in it…
we used / jit.gl.model / object which is an jitter object for 3d object simple manipulations. some data was extracted from jit.model help file and modified
leopard shape is a mask for a different video footage which appeared to be inside the shape..
for the more abstract feeling the leopard shape was multiplied and combined as a hybrid…
- the mirror effect is a “facet” command turned on inside the jit.model.
the video footage ‘inside’ the 3D shape was previously datamoshed / distroyed for the extra effect..
[the texture of a model is a quicktime looping sub-patch with datamoshed video...]
heres the patch >>
datamoshed video subpatch >>
one of the shape subpatches >>
and the video sample of live max/ stream for one of the tracks >>
the documentation of the event should be coming soon …::
