L.E.V. Matadero Festival
Besides the music video “Sparks”, I worked along KSP to develop a whole live visual concept to present his debut album “Dead Skin Cells”. For that I created a bunch of basic animation in 3D with plain colors, textures but illuminated in RGB colors. Footage that later on I used live through VDMX, applying different effects to each color channel + old school video glitches. During the live performance the video feed is sent to a CRT monitor, then re-scanned through an HD camera and sent to the projector. The purpose of this technique was to add an old-school video aesthetic to a 3D / digital content, so I could use full digital effects and still get a physical and organic touch.
