Very excited to bring the Creatures AV show to Mapping Festival in Geneva this year, with musician André Uhl ! Watch out for Uhl’s dark, brooding beats as they warp and weft with Jem the Misfit’s distorted visions of the body.
Check out the festivals teaser video and get in the mood with some tracks from the Creatures show here!
Immersive multimedia installation at Sonos Studio, Los Angeles.
At the end of last year I was head down creating visual wonders for the “Sound Affects” installation at Sonos Studio ahead of the opening event on 17th December. Curator Megan Steinman invited me to collaborate with Los Angeles based architecture firm PATTERNS and sound designer Jon Bernson to create an immersive installation, facilitating mood transformations throughout the gallery. Although the main intention of the exhibition was to explore the transformational possibilities of sound, we worked to enhance this process by exploring the interaction of sound with the spatial, textural and visual. The outcome was 3 distinct environments, each with its own visual, structural and aural characteristics, inviting visitors to have a unique engage with each space.
Insomiac writes about the show as an exhibition that “totally gives you feels” here >
And Sonos has produced this beautiful video detailing the exhibition and the collaborators different approaches to the installation.
Get a glimpse of some of the exciting Jem the Misfit projects created over the past year or so. Everything from large scale festivals, mapped stages, mapped sculptures to dedicated AV projects with some amazing musicians, including full content design and creation, video, animation and sculptural production.
The Hybrid_Nonagon show premiers at ADE this week at the spectacular venue The Eye! This is a full live AV collaboration between Paula Temple and myself. Very excited to see this come to life on the huge cinema screen at The Eye! We are also giving a talk at Beamlab about the ideas and processes behind the Hybrid_Nonagon show. Amsterdam here we come!
Beautiful weather, stunning location and 5 days of incredible music; Sonus Festival has it all. Apart from being exhausting for all the production crew this festival has been one of my favourites this year. This may have something to do with the crystal clear water I swam in everyday, or the exhilaration of performing with some of the top international names in Techno? Whatever it is I can’t wait to get back to Sonus again next year.
Check out the photos from Sonus Festival 2014 here, with my visuals for the likes of Loco Dice, Chris Liebing, Seth Troxler, John Digweed, Joseph Capriati and more.
