Hi, my name's Oliver. I like to make stuff.
Here are some of the things I've been up to recently.
Array, 6 music videos for Aether Pilot
'The sounds of vacuum tubes and transistor rhythms'. This album represents Aether Pilot's vison of a distopian future. All visual material is computer-generated using a custom program I made in Quartz Composer, and composited in After Effects.
Mutek 2012, Montreal, VJing at Metropolis
This is the opening sequence of Matt Thibideau's live set at Mutek festival 2012, Montreal. I worked with VJ Gridspace to create audio-reactive, computer-generated graphics that we mixed together with video footage in VDMX.
EcO, architectural installation at Concordia University
The question behind this project was: how to bring vitality to a space by modifying it in some way? You can dicover more about this project on the EcO website.
Stars, my first computer game
Use both left and right mouse buttons to navigate (right = switch target, left = jump). Collect as many blue stars as you can and then get to the black star before the time runs out, but be careful to avoid the deadly yellow stars!
And here is some of my previous work
Pinpeat, animations for the Quai Branly Museum of Primitive Arts, Paris
These animations were made as part of an interactive display for an exhibition at the Quai Branly Museum on Pinpeat: traditional Cambodian ceremonial music associated with the Angkor period. Graphic elements are syncronized with sound frequencies using Adobe Soundbooth and Adobe After Effects. Art direction by SHIC.
The Clock, music video for D&AD student competition
A dark and moody vision of a world on the edge of collapse. The Clock got more than 19,000 hits on YouTube!
Ida & Gaspara, website for Monsieur Max
Loosely inspired by 14 asteroids in our solar system, Monsieur Max takes the listener on a breathtaking journey into space. You can listen to the music on the Ida & Gaspara website.
Due East, personal project
Made in collaboration with London-based poet David Slovak, Due East is a process of discovery by allowing for inspiration without trying to force it. We cycled due East through South London at 5 in the morning with a compass to guide us. We used a film camera and a dictaphone to document our journey. Later we transcribed the experience onto crude printed cut-outs of the photographs taken using a typewriter.
