Examples of work
Hi everyone, I am teaching a course that will feature Isadora, but in general is about video and technology in performance. I wanted to hit up the Izzy community for some examples of work with nice documentation. I am looking for stuff with mapping, blending, interactivity, less for just video playback. It would be great to get some replies.
Hi @Fred : here something I did with Isadora as main software. Others used: NI-Mate, eMotion, Osculator (Tuio messages from the floor laser tracking system), Kinect 1, 4 HD projectors, floor projection, 4 HD projectors wall projection, 1 projector side projection, all from one MacBook Pro plus Matrox triple Head. There was a scaler for the 2x4 HD Projector (so I used their internal edge blend). I used the mapper for shapes, Midi controller for fades and triggers. DMX King for some Par lights. A second MacBook Pro was synced for one screen for the dancer (hidden from public to synchronize the choreography)
Great, really nice, thanks.
I have quite a few videos of various things on my youtube:
Hi, here you have a piece of my work. I used Isadora as a main soft as well. It's a kind of compilation of some scenes from the show.
@grzegorz holy cow, that's amazing. Fantastic work!
How did you track the dancers?
@crystalhorizon hello, thank you very much for your kind words.
I used cheap CCTV camera, IR lights and eye++, that's it
@grzegorz great. You had the tracking camera from above facing downwards? And the IR lights from the side?
@crystalhorizon hi,camera was above facing downwards and IR lights aswell. It may sounds funny, but the secret was a good cloth - knitwear, not fabric; non-reflective. I was trying a lot of types and only one gave me the effect I wanted to achieve. BTW, also cat's fur was great and gaffa tape.
All of the Troika Ranch pieces (created by yours truly and Dawn Stoppiello) are online at http://troikaranch.org In addition to the excerpts. you can also find full length videos of every piece.
Not all feature video, but 16 [R]evolutions and perhaps Future of Memory are worth showing to the students.
Heya, if you're interested here's a couple of show's I've created.
I've been using QC and Isadora,
I'm still a student myself, so go easy on me!!!
Hi, a couple of Isadora centred projects documented on vimeo. One is of a gesture interface (at the time) in development. The other is a black box dance installation where audience and performer interact. Cheers Bonemap
