reconsidered thoughts on VJs, via Chromaphase/a bunch of music

i usually hate on VJs*. in clubs, i like dark rooms with big subwoofers. i can’t tell the difference between a dvd of doraemon or lupin and a real life VJ manipulating some cartoons and video clips, because i’m not looking at the screen. for me, clubs and dance floors are a rare haven from the ever-pervasive screen.

but this dude Chromaphase gets a pass, cause he’s on some next level shit. like, if Actress was teaching trigonometry‚Ķsomething like that.

Actress – Wrong Potion.

no idea how this works because there was only one projector. sometimes different images flashed around each individual panel simultaneously. the coolest sequence showed a map, then a building-level flythrough of that city, then a faster flythrough of what looked like the cyber networks that connected the city. props.

haven’t posted much music lately, but i’ve been listening. here’s a bunch of tunes i’ve been feeling.
