Jason Blakemore sent me a bunch of VHS tapes from various events he’s played at. The video above is footage of DJ Trance at the first Bassrush event, produced by Insomniac, held in Los Angeles on February 23rd, 2002. More videos of Jason Blakemore (DJ Trance) are available on his Youtube channel.
Congratulations to Joel, DJ Mojo, on completing his undergrad senior project!
This video was shot shortly after his project presentation and demonstrates the AirDeck virtual theremin application he designed. The AirDeck was written in Jave with the WiiUseJ API for handling Wii remote events and the JSyn API for internal synthesis. It can control MIDI out as well as offering a simple DJ scratch interface for real-time manipulation of sound samples similar to a DJ scratching with vinyl records.
You can keep up to date on what Joel’s working on at his blog: Mojo’s Dojo
My friend Joel, aka DJ Mojo, has opened the doors to Mojo’s Dojo to discuss the design particulars of the Wii Theremin he’s developing for his undergraduate senior project. Check out the video posted above for an introduction to the cool things his doing with his love of music, some programming and a Nintendo Wii remote.
What you’re about to see is a mix of unrelated YouTube videos/clips edited together, by Kutiman, to create ThruYou. In other words – what you see is what you hear.
I was blown away when I saw this and felt compelled to share it with you. Kutiman is to YouTube videos what DJ Shadow is to vinyl records. This is a perfect example of synergy, where the whole is indeed greater than the sum of the individual parts. Thanks to Brian from JAAAHWS for turning me onto this, it put a huge smile on my face this morning.
