VIDEO RECORDING FROM LIVE PERFORMANCE_
Improvisation & Live Video Performance by VjThai
with Dj Yesca (Mx – Sistema Local)
At FORUM Foro Universal de las culturas. Zona FORUM. Parque Fundidora.
Monterrey, México. 2007.
Live Performance for me has the quality of ever changing its form, it depends on the music, the artist, the place, the projections, and the public, and the combination of them always give different results.
This video is the only memory of that Audio Visual perfect moment of creation of live videoart through improvisation and combinations of videoclips of my creation, that seem to fit perfectly with the music around many issues that were awakening in my mind through various years of the exploration of video without any boundaries.
Using my video recordings of nature, vintage documentaries on the human body, refractions and reflections and live camera, to try to create this connections on all levels from a micro and macro dimensions, levels of meaning in a mixture of science and transcendence.
I had been working with Sistema Local (SLSS) crew and Dj Yesca for a long time through different multimedia projects and happenings. As they explored into the deepest hard to find vinyl records for an eclectic sound, Yesca and I explored the visual side of music through design and moving image. It all happened so natural that with them having hours of spinning records, I had hours of live visualizations, and as the djs changed, I kept on going and had to improvised through different styles without ever knowing what could sound next.
This performance had place in ZONA LOUNGE, as part of the FORUM activities in the city of Monterrey. The visuals were seen by a few in 8 proyections of 3×4 meters distributed around the place. It is an industrial warehouse where there use to be a fabric of steel, and now there is a park area called Parque Fundidora.The place was transformed for this FORUM event, and it existed only 4 months, 2007.
