David Lublin at Vidvox points us to this fantastic video from CONTAKT, playing live in Amsterdam with Richie Hawtin:
I’ve started to use Kineme plugins for Quartz Composer in my live set. Here is a good example based on ‘tb soundflower’ composition by alx toneburst. I’ve modified it to my performance and controlled variables live through VDMX. It worked great when Richie was playing with the mixer. Special thanks to alx toneburst and Kineme!
I have to get over how great the projection looks. Yes, event planners / promoters / club owners, this is how it’s supposed to be.
It’s also great to see some really lovely generative work. And you can expect more. The Kineme plug-ins are open-source, donation-based plug-ins for Apple’s lovely Quartz Composer.
There are some great little tools in there, including useful utility stuff – work with the Apple Remote, QuickLook, audio devices, cameras – and visual stuff as well, including OpenGL-based tools and a network camera tool. Anyone else using them? Other QC tips? Seems like we need to do an updated Quartz Composer guide soon. (In the meantime, I remain committed to developing some of the stuff I’m working on on the PC, vvvv, and Processing sides!)
