Immersion Wrap-up 7 Aug 2008
Thanks to all who packed in The Flea Pit to hear and see the last Immersion night. Alias had his Immersion pixelist debut during Dr. No’s and Straight’s rather laid-back sets. I rolled out my new Jellotail live drawing software during Michael Santos’s richly textured tones and got so immersed in the performance that I forgot to change visuals. Special gues VJ and VJ Loops impresario Kyle Lyons was in from Spain to provide some visual cover to the machine gun synths of Jamka, while Dr. Mo accompanied the very danceable beats of Manchester’s MOQ. Somehow, though, it was slub who brought the house down at the end with their autonomous-robot-drum-machine-livecoding-textual-based-computer-sound-madness culminating in crashing (or at least shutting down in a not-so-safe manner) all their laptops at the apex of their sonic madness.
Thanks to all who came, and those who performed! Definitely one of my favorite Immersion nights.
