Evaluation

Overall I was quite pleased the final installation. Although there are a few things I know I can work on to improve, I think it was a great starting point for me to understand the Sound Lab and how the array works as well as the limitations of the room – in terms of space, […]

Installation Day 2

After yesterdays sorting out of projections I have been rethinking the space quite a lot. There is a lot of bleed from one screen to another so I think I really need to block off all corners of screens so that the back projections have a clean framed image on the white sheets. The array […]

Installation Day 1

Day one of install was mainly to get the projectors up and running. We had the box that enabled me to split the screens 3 ways but was just waiting on long enough cables to run from the computer to the projectors. I didn’t have the visuals ready yet so I just projected my Noctilucence […]

Maxuino//ABleton + Humidity Sensor and Soild Moisture Sensors

Even though I have been working on a massive patch for most of the semester I have just found out a SUPER easy way to have everything working. I have just been shown how to Max4Live in Ableton and it just made my whole life SO much easier! Now I can really see how all […]

Preliminary Set Up

  This was supposed to be a preliminary set up but it started falling into place and as I found out that the screens could stay up over the Christmas break  – and the layout was likely not to change, it has ended up being the final set up.   This is a sketch of […]

Live Show Evaluation

Evaluation Marketing/Promo and Sound Coming up to the grad show there was a lot of organising that needed doing. As designated head of promo I felt there was a fair bit that we could do to raise money and have an amazing grad show where it would essentially be the last time I would probably […]

Promo – After party at Zerodegrees Cardiff

I really really didn’t want to have the after party in Le Pub or The Marangers or well.. in Newport in general. So after searching around for a venue I finally found Zero Degrees Brewery in Cardiff. At first I tried Urban Taphouse who did orignally say yes and gave me quite a good deal […]
