Increíble el nuevo set de directos que acompaña a Daedelus. Yo sólo le he visto una vez actuar (el el LEV) y pensaba …. este hombre no necesita visuales, todo el es un visual (por su forma demanejar la monome).
Pero grata sorprensa al ver el montaje que se a ideado para su nueva gira. Via: Wired
Experimental music producer Alfred Darlington, operating under the name Daedelus, has developed a wall of moving mirrors that interacts with his audiovisual electronica set.
Darlington teamed up with visualist Emmanuel Biard and engineer David Leonard to create the machine, which goes by the name Archimedes.
Archimedes features 36 large, moving mirrors, each controlled with two servo motors (one for the X axis and one for the Y axis). These have been programmed to carry out a variety of coordinated movements, but can still be controlled individually. These interact with short-throw projectors that shine video content, color and shape against the mirrors so you can see the image projected as well as the reflected surroundings in the surface. This is then complemented with dry ice, which means that the images are reflected into the room itself.
Darlington told Wired.co.uk: Live electronic music is still in its infancy truly; years of pioneering efforts by groups like Kraftwerk, The Orb, Chemical Brothers have taken important formative steps defining what it means to be onstage, computer- or synthesizer-assisted. But only in the last 10 years have we really begun to both have tools in hand that allow the music to start transcending the computer and the visuals to break out of those previous paradigms of a rock light show, or rave cliché.
He added: My live show is mostly about auditory long shapes, slow inclines, melodic release and some noise-y climax. Archimedes allows for some very complementary motion, largely thanks to Emmanuel Biardâ€TMs deft control and striking visuals.
