Sounds Seen: Austin's VJ Competition
Alamo Drafthouse Downtown
Sunday, Nov 26, 9:45 PM
It's time for the Bi-monthly VJ competition at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema downtown. Vj-ing is a relatively new phenomenon which takes the art of the DJ (turntablism) into the video arena. Sounds Seen features local and regional VJs as they perform 6-8 minute sets of live-mixed video. The kicker, at the end of the night, the audience votes on who delivered the best performance and that competitor will walk home with $500 cash. The whole night makes for a pretty cool, unique eye-candy experience, so I encourage you to check it out.
Sounds Seen is sponsored by Livid Instruments and the New AT&T. Livid will have software demonstrations in the lobby and will also be giving away a copy of Livid Union to one of the competitors.
With the recent advances in low-cost, high-speed laptops, the computing power to join into the VJ fray is now within anyone's reach. As proof positive of that concept, I myself will be competing for the first time at this month's VJ competition. Please don't boo me off the stage.
