:: TrikeDoubleThree :: Interview with Bernhard Lang and Christine Gaigg

TrikeDoubleThree is a piece of performative dance in conjunction with audio visual elements by Christine Gaigg (2nd nature) and Bernhard Lang.
The four dancers on stage, perform on sound panels by being video taped, the sound and video is sampled with the “visual loop generator” and reprojected on the screens in the middle of the stage (stage design: Philipp Harnoncourt). As a viewer you might loose the oversight of what is created by whom, is the machine following the human dancers or vice versa?

But somehow, it’s all about loops. We had the chance to talk to Christine Gaigg and Bernhard Lang, the creators of this piece where dance meets media art.

TrikeDoubleThree was shown at TQW, November 2009, Wien Modern Festival.

PDVJ Tools Presentation


Yves Degoyon and Lluis Gomez and presented their recent pdp development PDVJ “pure data visual junk” – it’s all about image processing and visual work within pd that include helpful objects like a colorgrid to pick a color or a videogrid that shows all the videos of a folder.

also opencv (opencomputervision) will be included in pdp in something like a month. Its in full developement at the moment, they were finishing the pdp_opencv_blob object (a blob detection object) right before the talk, so this is cutting edge information. i can’t wait for this one.


also i’ll finally have to get a new computer because all the pdp stuff is done for linux – it also works on osx, but since you have to run X11 on aqua it will not be as fast as on linux. becaused it seems to be loads of work, it’s not planned to port it to window$ ;)

because of dependency problems it won’t be included to pd-extended, you’ll have to install it on your on.
