Magnetic Flow by Collectif Scale at La Vallée BXL

Must say I'm extremely impressed by this one piece called 'Flux' that the Collectif Scale made for their Magnetic Flow Exhibition displayed at La Vallée BXL.

How they managed to make this installation interactive and playable by a random audience, without losing a sense of smoothness and seamless audiovisual flow, is truly fascinating to me.

This is a recording of me 'playing' their device. I'm left mind-boggled by the mechanisms behind it!

Recollect, a collaboration of visual artists

At the BLANCO Open Space in Gent, 14 visual artist gathered to showcase their collection of close collaborations between Tuesday 27th and Thursday 29th of December, with the support of 3 musical acts.

My personal contribution consisted in displaying a slight variation of my generative album covers on a couple of CRT TV screens (made available by Felix Ysbear), and to provide some random content to be displayed on the main cube by pre-recording a VJ jam session on it.

Here are some snapshots below, to set the mood.

Putting my stickers around Berlin City

Last weekend I went to Berlin for leisure, and brought a pack of stickers with me to put them all around the city.

I must say, I do think they look cool in this somewhat industrial looking metropole!

Resurrected: Alto Electronic Music Device

Back in 2017, Alto was made in the context of my Art & Technology Bachelor degree at the Erasmus University College Brussels. You can read all about it on this dusty blog page.

Around 2019, Alto was disassembled to be used again in the form of a physical photo-booth controller. Using the LEAP-motion technology that was previously embedded in Alto, this resulted in a bunch of funny distorted snapshots [reload page] taken during the FRIS #8: See For Yourself event at Westrand, Dilbeek.

Now in 2022, Alto is finally remade again. Using a similar process like back in the day during my Bachelor's. I will be using this device once more, but now repurposed in the context of my Master studies at LUCA School of Arts Brussels. Stay tuned folks!

I was invited on the ‘Gene Zever’ Podcast

Last Wednesday I was invited on this local podcast hosted by three lovely guys to talk about the past, present, and future, of TROWFLOX.

What struck me the most was how they seemed to be prepared very well! They threw in a couple of questions that really made me think deeply about my creative experiences so far. They clearly did their homework! And I enjoyed every single bit of it. ^_^

I'll make sure to keep you posted whenever the TROWFLOX episode gets released. ;-)

Gene Zever is a Brussels based podcast hosted in collaboration with BRUZZ 5+1.
