Igloofest 2013

I really had a great time doing visuals for Igloofest 2013. I played thursday night, february 7th for Ben UFO and Joe Goddard. It was one, if not the coldest night of the whole fest so it was great to see people out and having a great time regardless of the extreme weather.

I scoured the Internets in search of photos from the night’s performance and these are the photos I found.

Announcing VJZEF Live Set, Thursday, February 7th @ Igloofest 2013

Igloofest_Feb7-2013I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be doing a VJ set Thursday, February 7 at the 2013 edition of Igloofest.

I’ve gone to Igloofest every year since my arrival to MTL in ’08 so it is a very satisfying landmark for me to be able to be a part of such a great winter event.

I’ll be projecting on the main stage from 10:30pm – midnight over Ben UFO and Joe Goddard‘s set. Just before me will be Montreal’s Hugues Clement, which I’m also very excited to see, doing visuals over Taal Mala and Ben UFO.

I Dream of Wires Exclusive Video

On June 2nd I had the pleasure to do some visuals in the Satosphère in Montréal for a special night featuring modular synths at the MUTEK festival.

Here is a video I stumbled upon on Wired.com shot that night featuring interviews with Sealey / Greenspan / Lanz, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Clark and Container along with some footage of the evening’s performances. Visuals that evening were done by Zef & Santo, Diagraf, and пират.

This documentary footage is part of the larger “I Dream of Wires:The Modular Synthesizer Documentary” project.

Here are a few screengrabs of the video with the Zef & Santo visual bits.

Our visual performance, and an explanation of our workflow for that night is also featured in an article on Creative Applications Network.

TunnelVision video by Over the Transom

A video I did for my musical project Over the Transom. A really fun electronic music collaboration with my friend Nadia Gaudet which regularly releases free music on our podcast.

All effects in the video are practical in-camera with zero post-production other than the final editing.
Source footage was mapped and projected using VDMX to simple cutouts in front of a CRT television with the camera’s feed routed into the background screen causing visual feedback. Simple and super fun. Shot on a Canon 60d with 50mm lens.

REcon Party 2012

On June 15th, I had the pleasure of performing some visuals alongside great musical performances by Battle Lava and Reda Achour at the REcon 2012 wrap party at the Cabaret Underworld in Montréal. The evening was a total blast, thanks to all the great performances and superb work of event organizer VJ Ma.
