Tycho: Decibel Seattle Live Video

Posted by Scott

Tworedshoez got some good footage of the Tycho set at Decibel Fest in Seattle last month. The video and effects are all being mixed live in VDMX.

Great set indeed with that so faboulous track ‘From Home’ !
Hope to see a gig in France once, who knows ?
Tycho, what else ?

so awesome…so are you mixing both the audio and video at the same time with VDMX or are you using it just for video and playing audio separately in a different program?

Awesome Scott – thanks for posting! Do you ever (or can you?) increase the sensitivity of VDMX so that the visuals have more obvious reactions to the music/beat? I like how you’ve got it at the moment – it’s nice and fluid, which suits that track.

everything is literally being performed and effected live, all the transitions. during that particular set, VDMX was not interpreting incoming audio. I plan to create some transitions and effects that can be triggered by the music coming up, but for now it’s by hand. I used to trigger the visuals with the music but it wasn’t all there yet so I stripped it down for this set. but like you said, the music has a fluid vibe to it, so it’s not like super sharp transitions and timing is really suited to it anyways.

Scott –
Thanks… VDMX sounds great. Will have to check it out. I saw Gotye do something similar to your visuals at a recent live performance – he was controlling it all from a Macbook.

Off topic, but take a look at BeatMaker on the iPhone for some portable beat creation magic. There’s a short YouTube vid here:
