Audiovisual Performances

I like to perform a kind of live cinema, which involves real-time manipulation and mixing of recorded videos, custom animations, sample collage, soundtracks and occasional subtitles. Although I sometimes do this solo, I enjoy it more when playing with musicians such as Future EaterFaux PasDan MacKinlayLewis Cancut or Suckafish P Jones. Below, a typical live audiovisual set-up ( as well as sending out a video signal, I like to send out sound as well, which can be processed or not by the musician).
