Cimatics presents
Cimatics, Brussels International Platform for Live A/V, presents a Masterclass Live Audiovisual Art, within the framework of the studio-program Experimental Media-art provided by the VAF (the Flemish Audiovisual Fund).
Because the biggest merit of live A/V is its cross-border and cross-disciplinary character the masterclass will challenge its participants to do just that: collaborate.

The goal of this blog is to generate an open-source effect: opening up the discussions from within the masterclass to the rest of the world. Let this be a call for everyone to participate and join or start a debate.
Eventually, this blog will be printed as a book. An additional DVD with the open-source versions (Creative Commons license) of the participants masterclass-projects will be available afterwards. So if you post something to this blog, you are co-authoring the book.

comments on Arnold's post

I would love to try the software tools that you found as downloads. I'm trying to think of what to prepare until next time, do you have suggestions?

I am totally amazed by the Khronos projector. I think it is both a very effective installation to be able to scratch and rub different layers of pre recorded material. As a performative thing it could be insanely beautiful to create a duet between the distorted image and the person touching the screen. I must admit that all technical possibilities make me slightly lost in what I can contribute with. But this Khronos thing is for example something I would die to develop material for.
I think what I can contribute with in a collaboration is unfortunately very basic; Performing/creating material, conceptual development and writing application;-)
Just one thing if one would like to develop a concept using the Khronos projector set up.
How much would it actually cost?

I can be available for a skype-session if there will be a group meeting tomorrow. If I don't hear anything else from you I'll be online at 6pm. My skype name is lottaruth. Further I'm in Belgium already on the 15th and would very much like to meet with some of you during the week-end before the new workshop session.

Looking forward to seeing you soon again. Lotta

Here is a link to a demonstration video of the Khronos projector and a link to a bit simpler distortion prop... my favorite... nylon stockings. I'd like to further explore them...

Noticed myself when looking on the demonstration video again.. that the real thing doesn't exist yet, or?
