Indoor projection mapping

If you’re going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you’re going to be locked up.
– Hunter S. Thompson

Because the next hip thing in Veejaying is mapping, and since I’m still a professional VJ, it is about time that I presented my first Mapping project. Now truth be told, I’m a bitch in these things, and won’t get out of bed unless somebody pays me an insane amount of money for these stuff like this. But our Sales-Samurai got Adobe crazy enough to sponsor a mapping project for something called “the National Publishers Convention 2011” at the deFabrique </mandatorynamedropping>

Let me fill you in on “Mapping”, it is the art of using everyday walls and buildings as a projection screen, where one uses the distinct features of the wall or building in the visuals. Simple idea, you have to be French to come up with it. Long story. As I said, it’s the next hip thing. And I must admit, it is very cool.

Now they wanted me to give a quick overview of communication media. I can do that. And with Peter Ankone and Max Sombroek at my side nothing can really go wrong. Except that Peter overslept and missed his own project. Jinx

Then the world changed…

I didn’t do anything, as we were to busy smelling each others farts.
-You, probably me, talking to your kid in thirty years time. Explaining why it is such a mess then.

This is one of those posts, that should start with something about how long I haven’t posted  on this blog. Although that would be true, and it would make an okay opening I guess, I am starting with something else. Something you’ve all heard about by now, even those suckers who are trapped on this page by a Google on ‘ duct tape’ .  I mean you, accidental visitor who searched for duct tape. And who choose ‘images’ on Google to search. And couldn’t help yourself when you saw this picture on page 2. And thank you 14000 visitors a month.

Yes, now you are here on a completely different subject. It is not what you are looking for, but read on anyway; All of you who read this, just click ‘more’, and read on for a bit. It is needed and it is important.

I can haz Audiomixer?

audioChannels

Ok.

So we are tinkering with this interactive video platform, Marduq, and I wanted to make an Mp3 player, to go with your video. Or slideshow. Or whatever. Like so. But you may notice that if you start fiddling with the volume, the system breaks. Crashes. Burns. Death. Agony.Wailing.

This is because in Marduq, we only have 1 channel of audio mixing, ie. the video-soundtrack. But as research of Surfinnetje showed over a year ago: Watching snowboarders in a half-pipe and choosing different mp3-files is fun. So we needed a way to track different soundtracks in the system. Both mp3, system sounds, ambient sounds, youtube sounds and video sounds. And of course a master.

Well. Here is the prototype.

* applaus *

This thing mixes a youtube channel and flash net video together with a couple of mp3 files. The mp3 even have balance dials The youtube and the master have balance dials, but they do nothing. Also. The video and youtube can not be paused in this prototype. The PlayheadController will take care of that.

And when you start-up, everything is ON . TOGETHER. Making NOISE!

And some props. On a side note. I can now also build twoyoutubevideosandafuckingcrossfader. Now if only I could get those youtube players to pitch… hmm…
