Come Heavy Sleep happened on 13th and 14th December and it was a great success! It seemed like the audience enjoyed themselves and for me, even though it was only 30 minutes long, it was a really exciting and challenging experience.
In my usual work I have more of a free reign over what I do and don’t as much knowledge of the running order of the performance. That, and I’m not usually performing on a two-metre high platform on stage in front of an audience!
All of the visuals were made using a combination of Pure Data with some hardware things. I may do a write-up of the techniques I used in the hope that it may help others. It was very different from my usual visualisationing that I do in that I had to be a lot more controlled. Each scene needed to have its own personality and be precicely timed to moments in the performance. Essentially, I had to structure my Pure Data patches to shift between scenes. Yeah, will definitely do a write-up.
There’ll be an official video and photos from the performance itself in the future, but until then enjoy these visuals.
Thanks to Kindle Theatre for inviting me to participate in this exciting performance 🙂 It’s a work in progress so expect it to come back bigger, longer
and uncut in the future!
