Synergia Synergy between DJ and VJ


Project Info

DJs and VJs unite!

Synergia let’s you control parts of each others performance. The aim was to enable the DJ to manipulate the visuals and to give the VJ some control over simple musical parameters. The music no longer dictates the visual. VJ and DJ work together.

Through a virtual midi cable the VJ’s midi controller can be assigned to musical parameters on the DJ’s machine. The same goes for the DJ’s midi controller concerning visual parameters. You can assign the same knob to both musical and visual parameters at once, so the audiovisual feedback feels very homogenous.

How much control is outsourced depends on the performers!

About

Who I am and what I do

Profile Picture

About Me

I am a creative technologist and motiongraphics designer based in Vienna. I love creating visually pleasing content and building engaging interactive experiences. I am passionate about the entire open source movement, be it soft- or hardware, and enjoy developing concepts that transcend the barriers between art and design.

Experience

During and after my Mastersdegree in MultimediaArt (MMA) in Salzburg I have worked for Red Bull (Salzburg), Strukt (Vienna) and Gate11 (Munich). Additionally I have worked on Exhibitions for Waldklang in Salzburg and various independent projects. Scroll down for "hard skills".

Philosophy

The best ideas develop in interdisciplinary environments. The old can become the new by mixing and matching diverse mindsets in creative teams or rethinking and transforming existing concepts. Communication is based on a clear mutual understanding between creators, clients, and users.
