Last year I was invited to make visuals for an old acquaintance, Michael Morton, who is a musician. Displacer is his stage name. Last year, I hemmed and hawed about helping and just couldn’t commit. As a freelancer (or contractor depending on your preference) it’s not a good idea to accept work (free or not) and not do it. It reflects poorly on you.

He was releasing his latest album, titled Night Gallery and re-contacted me about doing visuals for his performance. This time, I said absolutely and just put my head down and did it.

Displacer and I had our first show on August 11th and were both really pleased with the result!

I worked in Processing, using the Minim FFT library, Daniel Shiffman‘s Wander and Flocking classes and an OSC protocol for Processing, oscP5. Finally, the controller was an iPad running TouchOSC with a simple layout made to give me access to opacity and saving a print, etc.

Mike has a show in Montréal in November I’d love to be at. Commence “Operation: Wear Wife Down”.

In an effort to keep track of what I was doing and Mike abreast of my progress, I made several screencaps of the project.

  1. Thanks, Ronald. After a quick look at what you already have going on, I think you’re doing much cooler stuff. Are you in town (TO) for Deadmau5’s big finale tonight?
