After the summer break we are happy to announce the following line-up:
Tim Vis / GER (20:00)
«Mixing after SD video. On the integration of new technologies for the VJ beeing a performer.»
Tim grew up in a radio & TV shop. His experience that his father was a enthusiast hobby photographer and his mother beeing a seller of dance music in the store then might have lead him into live visualism, aka Vjing. After finding that visualist niche he started VJing in 2005 and developed his own styles using the Textmachine3D VJ software. From 2009 on he is co-producer of the B-Side Festival in Mannheim (GER) serving there as the technical manager.
He now tries to support the community scene through infrastructural projects within the AVnode network on an european scale, e.g. being the host for a VJ Camp in Greece or offer quality technical support, ideas and advice to other community festivals in an Open Source way of thinking.
THE TALK: Now that we have overcome the limited possibilites of old-style SD mixing by the development of new Hard and Software, there is the opportunity to redefine the VJ as a performer, not only beeing a controller of some software, which he was mostly after SD-Video outputs on the computers have been suspended. The talk is on concepts, ideas and the small tech-toys that make these reality.
