Final Project

Prepare a short (~2 min) audio and/orvideo performance by remixing found or original footage live. Create one installation that requires the viewers presence to run.  Or you could play with the patch while its presented.  You may include a webcam with your video, or you may have Max react with arduino sensors, or both.  There must be one input or output address by the viewer.  

We will present our pieces in the gallery during the class final which is on Wednesday Dec. 5 TBA.  A projector will be provided, along with a laptop, cameras, cables, and speakers.  However if you can supply your own, the better.  Each student (or group) will be able to present their own work and have the class interact with it.  You may take patches and use other peoples work from the links below, but you must document your sources and share them in class.  

Like project 1, you may work in groups again.  

You will be graded on whether your patches/sculptures work, but also on whether the content is clever and pushes forward an idea or creates a unique synthesis of different elements.

– use videos with similar visual properties i.e. belonging to the same era or genre
– don’t use sources that are already art/artsy or already remixed
– if you are mashing up songs together you should make sure their beats and key match, or you edit them to make them match (it’s not easy)
– the remix doesn’t have to be fast and noisy, you can try a droney, slow flow
