The visual artist who collaborated on this project was Mike Kluge (MKAV), an audio/visual artist living in Nashville, TN who works on freelance projects such as music videos, live visuals, art installations, interactivity, and content for tours told us a bit about how it all came together.
I was contacted by Michael Eades (YK Records) to do content for his label. He offered up a couple tracks, and I decided on Uncle Skeleton, whom I was familiar with and who's work I really enjoy.
It was understood ahead of time the video for "Jeux" was going to be an abstract visualization of the song, which I think is one of my strongest techniques. I mapped out the parts via MIDI in Ableton and sent them to VDMX.
I like this technique because after I program the song and effects I can just hit play in Ableton, record the pass and its done. Only one edit happened in the entire video. I grew up editing music and programming midi so this approach is intuitive and convenient for me.
The hardware used was Macbook pro, alias 8 midi controller, analog video devices and for software VDMX, Ableton & Max/Msp/Jitter.
