Continuing to pair visual with sonic aesthetic, I was asked to develop a live video component for my friend/roommate/biz partners’ band, Convoys.

Things that were great about this opportunity:
• Cinecycle is the venue with 80″+ screen and HD projector
• Convoys play garage dance music – this made sourcing highly dynamic video for FX processing a very fun and entertaining task
• The crowd makes the movements; I just cue up and play along with the band, timing visual jumps in time with the rooms’ energy
It also helps that it was Movember and Jason’s (lead singer, Convoys) moustache was in “full” effect.

Played the Supermarket venue in Toronto’s Kensington village last night. Supporting Megan on drums, we opened the night for Mandippal and The Love Machine (from Ottawa).
The show was captured by three cameras set up by the sound tech (Johnny – a true sound tech with the stereotypically kooky character I’ve come to accept from most live sound engineers).

The show was streamed online and my Mom was able to tune in up north, so that was great that family could connect despite the geography between us. It’s got me thinking about future shows and expanding reach. If the iPhone does it (which is safe to assume it does), then drumovision may be coming soon to a FB event page near you.
