five weeks of edancing! – end of week two

23 08 2009

Thursday and Friday at Bedford with most issues over quality with transmitting multiple video streams. Proposed for closed sites to have as many localised nodes as possible. A few initial images from the early rehersals and descriptions follow. There are about a dozen pieces in this forming this structural piece.

Exploring imagery of close, with high contrast movable camera mount.


Multiple distorted and transparent views of the same image, also controlled remotely.


Structure now integrated a vertical camera pointing down to the stage with Google Earth to explore context and zoom interaction.


Final looping-piece involved hand held control of the cameras.

After a longish break, e-Dance is once again in full activity! The Arts Council has provided funding for a five week summer intensive and we are already in the second week of it.

I spent Monday/Tuesday this week in Bedford helping to set up the technical side, installing software, giving an introduction to our software to the person who will operate it during this time. For the rest of the period we in Manchester will be providing telephone support.

A good amount of development was done since we last used the Scene Editor in a live context. So of course some bugs have appeared which I try to fix as soon as possible.

I am looking forward to see the result of this work! Pictures from other bloggers might appear before that.
