Jun.25.10 V SQUARED LABS & TOUCHDESIGNER create PURE MAYHEM at EDC2010
The Electric Daisy Carnival is North America's largest electronic music festival, held this year at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum & Exposition Park June 25, 26. Some of the top-tier talent at this year’s extravaganza included Deadmau5, Armin van Buuren, Moby, Swedish House Mafia, and MSTRKRFT.
It was estimated that roughly 185,000 revelers attended EDC this year, making it the largest dance music event in North America.
We asked Vello, CEO and Director of V Squared Labs how these Visuals were achieved and he said:
We used TouchDesigner to capture 2 HD video feeds and route it into our pixel map. The stage itself had more LED video tiles than we have ever used before. To implement this we modified our Dome 2 TouchDesigner build, stripped it apart and rebuilt a new synth called Epic.
Epic allowed us to combine HD live mixed VJ visuals, with generative audio reactive graphics. This was a combination of 2 different VJ styles. Touch allowed us to musically animate the pixel mapped/routed video in ways we never imagined possible before.
Clearly! And here's a short peak at how this was put together in TouchDesigner.
