A Blending of Physical and Digital
The background animation was created using 3D and composting software, as well TouchDesigner. Using TouchDesigner, VVOX created a reliable playback system that efficiently handled HYBRID's heavy load of video and geometry information while minimizing GPU memory. The result was a beautifully driven show with no frame loss or delay. The team also used TouchDesigner to generate real-time sound reactive scenes in between the 3D pre-rendered scenes.
The physical representation, a foreground multi-dimensional stage piece, was synced with content that was entirely reactive to OSC signals from Dubfire's Ableton session. Custom effects, and on-the go manipulation were used onsite to create a unique performance for each show.
