Branching Fractal Sketches

Branching Fractal Sketches

I made these one evening in my studio in 2007. They are studies on the expressiveness of branching fractals. Each “twig” is a duplicate of the larger branch that it spouts from. I created each image by drawing a freehand shape, then selecting a branching pattern and adjusting parameters, the number of nodes, and the […]

Controlling Space and Time with the Razer Hydra
Another interface I’ve just recently integrated into my performance system is the Razer Hydra. Unlike my Anitar, this interface is off-the-shelf.

This is an upgrade to my classic performance console, allowing me more mobility on stage. It has all the functionality of my podium console, but in a cool form factor.
The style is fun and whimsical, but it’s completely […]

Here’s a quick snapshot of the Hidden World I’m designing for next week’s IPS2012 conference. I’ll be creating a world like this in 3D while Jonn Serrie performs his music.

Easter Eggs

Happy Easter!
I made a quick short movie today for Easter, celebrating the color and whimsy of egg decorating. Here are some images from that short.
As usual with my video productions, I used my real-time performance system to create and animate each shot.

The Four Seasons Video Teaser

An exciting collaboration between myself and the Hutchins Consort!
I have created designs for Vivaldi’s famous set of concertos. I perform my animations live as the Consort plays the music.
We first performed this for a private event a couple of months ago, and we’re looking forward to performing it again. We are planning on a November […]

Four Seasons World Premiere

Earlier in June, I gave the world premiere performance of my illustrations of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with the Hutchins Consort. Together, we performed the entire set of concerti: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, totaling forty minutes of new live animated landscapes, flora, and fauna.
