I'm looking forward to the electro-music conference in September!

I've just completed my fiftieth Simultaneous Opposites traversal:

http://www.vimeo.com/13168357


Simultaneous Opposites number 50 has a relatively simple sources yet has some of the most complex imagery of all of the Simultaneous Opposites series. There is a serenity that can be found in the beautiful and relentless rush of sound and visual in this piece.

I used an onscreen control panel instead of my usual MIDI guitar, to produce a purer piece, focused more on the visual compositing of the two clips. No text, no spoken word, no external music. This is the whisper of the background.

One note I need to add to this video: when I am capturing the performance, I am slamming the video fields together at a rate of up to 60 frames per second. It is captured at 30 frames per second, and after that the interframe compression tends to suppress the visual complexity. I believe the presentations are closer now to the original visuals than the earlier Simultaneous Opposites videos are, but viewing the live piece remains a fuller experience than the H264-compressed version. So: the live performance Sunday morning at the conference will be a chance to have a less compressed experience!

Does your SOE support OSC? Might be interesting to hook it up to the AudioCubes. The cube location/orientation could control the images while you can use cube pairs to control effects on the images... and then colour coudl be extracted from the images and fed to the cubes' RGB LEDs.
