I am very interested into in the relationship between music and visual arts, especially in a live setting. Under the performing name "SBthree", I have had the opportunity to create projections in sync with performing musicians in a wide variety of events. I have generated the projections in multiple ways including cueing up pre-rendered animations, overlaying existing media, and using a Kinect in order to allow the audience to interact with the projections. I have recently started using the program Unity to generate my visuals. Unity is usually used to develop video games, but has allowed me to create a projections which allow me to uniquely interact with the music.
LIVE PERFORMANCE VIDEO
Below is a video of live projection performance with the band Cheap Dinosaurs. This performance took place on the main stage at MAGfest 13.
Below is a simulated example of what my projections look like, synced to music. All transitions in this video were cued live to the music.
