VJFleet [redux], audio-video urban performance, 2006-2009
Simon Overstall, technical collaborator
VJFleet [redux] is a mobile video and sound performance situated in the streets and public spaces of a city. Serving as hybrid forms, a fleet of customized cars equipped with interactive, audio-video technologies cruise the city seeking engagement as urban performance. During a VJFleet [redux] performance, video of driving routes in a host city are manipulated by interactions between the car and driver to create effects on the videos. Audio aspects of the engine and voices of the drivers/guides from the host city are recorded en route to be remixed at chosen performance locations. Here, the audio and video recordings are mixed into a new live cinematic display.
