iX Symposium Montreal

May 21th starts the Symposium on Immersion & eXperience at the SAT, Montreal, focusing on fulldome and new media art. There will be talks, presentations and demos of cutting-edge technology by many well-known figures in that area.

As an invited speaker, i will talk about audio-visual fulldome and demonstrate the technology we are currently using to create 3D audio animations in-sync with fulldome animations. The SAT-Dome, or SAT[o]SPHERE, is well equipped with audio gear and a 150+ speakers which will be used to create virtual acoustics in the audio sessions, starting May 25th, 2:30pm.

UPDATE: I’ve been there in 2015, presenting the Matrix Optimizer software. That year was really amazing. I met a bunch of very nice and interesting people and almost all of my friends from previous years. If you ever come to Montreal, go visit the SAT. It is an outstanding place!…

The search engine at sat, montreal

Recently, musician and audio-visual artist DJ Food (Strictly Kev) screened his brand-new fulldome show “The Search Engine”, live at the “Satosphére” in Montreal, Canada. The Stratosphere is an amazing and probably unrivaled fulldome environment with a vast amount of projectors and speakers, capable of fully surrounding the audience with music, imagery and anything, the fulldome community can come up with today, at any quality, pre-produced or real-time, while visitors lie on the floor, normally 😉

we are grateful to have been able to collaborate with Kevin on his exciting 50+ minutes piece in the form of a few short scenes in the style of our Matrix Optimizer 1 & 2 shows. the next certain date his show will be screened is at the FULLDOME UK 2012, from 16th to 17th November at The National Space Centre in Leicester.

a review of the event can be found on Kevin’s website, also this nice cut-up from one of the organizers.…

Portable Dandy

Rumor has it, that there once was this infamous composer named Dandy Desmond, who, together with contemporaries like Oskar Fischinger or John Cage, would lay the foundations of automated art and storytelling, long before even science fiction authors would imagine audio-video devices nicely fitting into your hand palm. Today, a “composition for 15 tape-decks” can be implemented in an embedded operating system, heavily multi-threaded, developed in multiple languages and scripts and consuming way less power than a pre 21th century light bulb.

In my position as the magic number eight supplier for the amazing portable dandy application, i’m proud to announce my involvement with these great guys:
