In this episode of the DubSpot Wireless interview series, Brian Williams, a.k.a. Lustmord, sits down with Raz Mesinai f.k.a. Badawi for an interview that touches on experimental and extreme creative processes in electronic music, sound design and composition techniques, live performances, visual composition, and more.
The Cadger Dubstep Christmas House – First Of The Year (Equinox) by Skrillex.
35,000 LED lights
64 Light O Rama channels
All done by me, a 16 year old, and my dad.
No, my electric bill isn’t that high, I’m on level pay all year for it so it’s cheaper.
And no, my neighbors don’t hate me, in fact, almost everybody within a 10 mile radius LOVE the light show,
And no, I don’t have anything against people with epilepsy…. I just enjoy making my lights flash a lot 😉
Nokia UK & Deadmau5 presented this absolutely insane presentation yesterday, Nokia Lumia Live, at Millbank Tower, London.
Millbank Tower served as the canvas for this spectacular light show. Each of the 120 metre high building’s 800 windows were covered with vinyl, as 16 powerful projectors, stationed 300 metres away on the other side of the river, beamed 3D images onto the structure.
We’d like to see this sort of technology applied to something greater than selling mobile phones. But, at least for now, it’s unlikely that you’re going to see something on this scale without a big corporate sponsor.
Check out the video and let us know what you think. And, if any readers were at the event, let us know what it was like to see it live!
Update: The light show was produced by Drive Productions.
Cell Phone Disco is an experimental installation made out of sensor equipped LEDs.
Here’s the artists’ description:
Cell Phone Disco is a playful experimental installation made out of ?ashing cells. By multiplication of a mobile phone gadget, only slightly altered consumer product, we created a space to experience the invisible body of the mobile phone.
Flashing cells basically consist of one or more LEDs, battery and a sensor that detects electromagnetic (EM) radiation transmitted by an active mobile phone. When the sensor detects EM waves it sets off the LEDs to ?ash for a couple of seconds. In general the ?ashing cells are enclosed in a plastic casing on a strap and sold as a fashion accessory for a mobile phone.
The Cell Phone Disco installation has two parts:
Flashing cells with sensors of higher sensitivity are used to detect electromagnetic radiation of active mobile phone in a range of approximately a meter. This way a sort of aura appears around the phone, revealing a part of it’s invisible body. While the user moves around talking on his phone, this aura follows the conversation as a light shadow through the space.
Much less sensitive cells are used to create a canvas for an inkless marker. The LEDs get activated only by an extreme proximity of the electromagnetic source. Moving the phone close to the cells therefore leaves a trace of light, an temporary electromagnetic drawing.
