In the Workshop: Rhythm & Visual with Julie Malice
Join multimedia artist Julie Malice (they/them/theirs) for a live-visuals and VJ Workshop. What is a VJ? It’s is an abbreviation for video-jockey. Much like a DJ, a VJ live mixes video, animation and visual components for a dynamic visual experience. This can be carefully curated and manipulated to provide a visual counterpart harmonious to the music. Visuals are used in large venues and arenas, in night clubs and dance parties, and for theater and other productions.
Julie will demonstrate how to use two software programs for live visuals. The first program Cam Twist Studio is a free program that can be utilized for its video streaming, analog-style effects, and as a feeder layer into a separate VJ program called Resolume Arena. This robust software includes projection-mapping, the ability to set parameters to be affected by audio input, and tap in the BPM, as well as ways to animate still imagery. You can customize a MIDI controller to operate Resolume. It’s a total blast! Beginners of all types welcome! This is free, open to all ages and identities.
