After successfully testing at 2 events earlier this year, I’m busy with the finishing touches on Flowmotion 3D, which I have adapted from the normal version for Virtual Events, where you can also rent the new Philips 3d Plasma screens to use it on, or a more traditional stereo projected setup. Stay tuned for more news soon!
This weekend I’ll be using the custom 3D stereo version of Flowmotion at 5 days off at Melkweg in Amsterdam. This will be the first time someone does a VJ set on the new 3D plasma screens by Philips, that can make images leap out of the screen without needing to wear glasses.
Catch me on friday and sunday, alongside music by the likes of
2 many DJ’s, Boys Noize,Soulwax Nite Versions, Zombie Nation, Junkie XL, My Robot Friend, and many more
This saturday I will do my first ever 3D stereo VJ set at Sense at the magnificent Lichtfabriek in Haarlem, using a custom version of Flowmotion developed in cooperation with Virtual Events.

Next week you can experience Borderline, an interactive video installation I have done programming and technical coaching for. It’s an interactive story about a girl with Borderline Personality Disorder.
Technically it’s rather complex, a triangular room with 3 back-projected walls you can walk around in, while being tracked by a video camera hanging over the room. My job was processing the input from the video tracking (from eyecon) and various sensors embedded in objects in the room, and changing the scenes from this data, and sending MIDI to another computer running a custom Max/MSP patch to play multichannel surround audio. The installation is open for public from July 4th until July 8th at the Netherlands Film & Television Academy in Amsterdam.
As you probably know, I love jazz.
So I’m very pleased to close off the season at the legendary jazz cafe Dizzy in Rotterdam, doing visuals for KeyJay.
Proud to say it’s the first time a VJ performs there 🙂
Thursday 18th I will do an audiovisual performance at the launch event for
ONEDOTZERO FILM CHALLENGE 2006 at bios in Athens, Greece.

I’m working so hard on Flowmotion 3.0 I almost forgot to put this out 🙂
Flowmotion 2.8 Final is released
Latest version of this VJ Software is now available for PC and Mac
you can find the demo versions here
New in this release:
The biggest news is probably for Mac users. Finally FreeFrame effects are supported in the OS X version. Big ups for Intrinsic, Knalle and Valentin Schmidt for their great work in porting it.
Thanks to Pete Warden‚Äôs excellent work on the CoreImage FreeFrame wrappers all CoreImage filters are available for all OS X Tiger users.
There is more FreeFrame news for both platforms. FreeFrame source effects are supported now, with up to 12 parameters to animate. FreeFrame mixers are supported now too, with up to 5 parameters to control.
All new faders and knobs can be linked to other parameters or controlled by MIDI, just like the rest of Flowmotion.
User Interface improvements:
MIDI user feedback: every knob/fader you operate makes flowmotion show which parameter it‚Äôs controlling.
All browsers (for clips, effects, ink modes etc) use a new, consistent interface that does not interfere with playback.
Right-clicking any browser dismisses it.
Images with alpha layer are supported
(support for video with alpha layers is planned in 3.0)
Flowmotion now accepts shortcuts to clips for easy clip management.
Layer masks can now be inverted.
A large number of fixed bugs and speed optimizations.
This will be a free update for registered users of Flowmotion 2.x
