Rich Batsford Writes a Song for Chromatouch

Rich Batsford Writes a Song for Chromatouch

Music by Candlelight Tues July 1st | Rich Batsford

where he will be playing his latest songs including ‘Chromazone’, dedicated to yours truly. as i’ve never had a song written for me before i will be doing some special bits at project x for this. building on the colour scale theory i devised midi feedback relating to the notes he played at the first project x in 2006.

linking this to the new particle engine in visualjockey called particle storm i will project onto dancers tracked with infra red light. should be quite spectacular…

EDIT: from rich’s blog:

Marc Reck shot this nice little bit of video featuring part of my performance of my new piece Chromazone at the Music by Candlelight concert in Moseley last night.

Project X Presents: Xlab V1

Project X time again and we’ve foregone some of the performance for this one to try out a few of the techier ideas. I will be doing a couple of av sets, one based around youtube lo fi stuff using the freeware flash based FLXER vj software, and also something a bit slicker originally inspired by the club scene in the Twin Peaks film.

Things of note will be the Object X guys applying rocket science to installation art – I jest not, the fellows range from research experiment technicians at Birmingham uni to aerospace designers to Shoreditch science teachers… and they’ve got some ingenious proximity based/footswitchin/interactive sofa sound/light/motion structures all over the place, so you really can ‘watch your step’.

And there’s a live linkup from Oz with our very own reductive pianist, Rich Batsford streaming live over video from Adelaide University.

and there’s a whole program of music to fuse with this , from punk to funk to electronica and opera…

details are all here

Project X Presents

With a disturbing, lurching assault on the senses, Project X is an intelligent and unique show destabilising the established role of the “spectator” in performance theatre and drawing you into an impressively eclectic and complex mix of art forms. – Birmingham Post

The Aurul Fight @ Project X Presents 2

quite a surreal moment whilst the aural fight went off at pxp 2. everyone seems to have frozen except mark reck who has started rotating at an insane speed.
