Design realtime content for spherical environment.
Digital media offer a wide range of possibilities to bring out the relationship between sound, image and architecture, it allows music to be experienced as a total audiovisual experience. By working on spherical projection mapping during the last 3 years, multimedia artist, Maotik, has experienced the art of sublime live music through the image and light. This masterclass will teach techniques to build realtime content with touchdesigner for spherical environment. The participants will explore generative 3D animation to create immersive environment and perspective illusion. By using cube map render and shader distortion, participants will prepare their content for the video output and will be able to preview it using an oculus rift or an other VR device.
Digital artist based in Montreal, Mathieu Le Sourd (Maotik) focuses its work on the creation of immersive multimedia environments and generative visuals. His work has recently been presented in various festivals around the world, such as Live Cinema in Rio, the Plums Festival in Moscow, Visiones in Lima, Mutek Festival (Montreal, Mexico city, Barcelona and Bogota) and the British Film Institute in London. As lead of Moment Factory’s interactive team in 2011, Le Sourd produced large scale projects such as the multimedia experience in the new terminal at the Los Angeles airport as well as the visuals for Nine Inch Nails world tour. In 2013, he produced the critically-acclaimed immersive multimedia performance DROMOS, which was presented at the SATosphere in Montreal as part of the Mutek festival. Always in search of new challenges, Le Sourd designs his own visual tools by generating animations from algorithms and creating 3D worlds to transform perceptions of space. He collaborates with musicians, sound artists an scientists in order to continue his research into the relationship between art, science and technology.
