The Plums at Pyramid Atlantic

This documents a first attempt at low tech live video performance. The Plums, a fantastic Arlington, VA-based experimental band, asked me to project video at one of their shows several months ago. I looked into various programs for live video mixing, but, in the end, I decided to do something less technical, more physical. It also opened the project up to collaborators. I ran a camera and Maribeth Egan was in charge of our foreground objects. Paris Bustillos ran a camera as well. The Plums played for about 25 minutes, it felt like 10! Composing shots in real-time for an audience was incredibly fun! Now I need to break down and buy a projector (can’t borrow projectors forever!). I’ll be posting the whole show soon.
