Whilst researching visual performances, I came across visual Djing (VJing) Where DJ’s would use software to perform live editing in real time, which synchronized with music and sound. After finding some example I researched it further and was inspired to incorporate it as a major part of my final performance.

After researching VJing I came across the software Resolume, which is the renowned software when it comes to Vjing. I first began looking at simple tutorial to get a better insight of how complex the software is. After looking at a few tutorial I felt confident taking on a project and being able to learn it well enough in time for my final performance I watched a lot but these two were very beneficial to me.

A great simple yet effective project I came across that used Resolume, that had results I felt confident I could achieve within my project in time for my final performance.

One of my favourite pieces I came across that used resolume that I know I’d never be able to achieve by my final performance but I’d love to one day achieve. I think it is beautiful with extremely strong visuals and aesthetically matches the tone and mood of the music.

This is a piece of work I came cross that I took major influence from. Another project that uses Resolume but manipulates footage and creates a unnerving atmosphere and is almost unsettling to watch. A simply yet effective AV project. That just edits and manipulates video in such a way that you feel uncomfortable, although the visuals are not necessarily dark. It is just executed in the perfect way. I am hoping to capture this exact atmosphere in my performance.

Another inspiration for my final performance is this multiple chapter VJ performance call ‘Broken Planet’. This taught me a great technique of pre-editing videos on editing software first. Which lead me to pre-edit a video together in After-effects before importing it to Resolune shaping up my final performance. I found this project to be really effective and some of the techniques used I really want to incorporate in my final piece.

I came across this performance, which is totally along the lines of what I want to achieve in my final performance. This performance uses old movie clips and found footage, manipulated and edited together to create a VJ piece of work.

A beautiful teaser trailer for a VJ performance. I feel this would be the best way to promote and market my performance, simply releasing little aesthetic teaser trailers to capture audiences attention.
