AV SYNTHESIS: THE SIMULTANEOUS SYNTHETIC CREATION OF AUDIO AND VISUAL MATERIAL
From 1988 we started putting electronic visuals together with our music, making analogies and connections between DJing and VJing, audio and visual. Through the 90s with our Hardwire/Hex projects with Miles Visman, Robert Pepperell and Stuart Warren-Hill we developed these ideas into software like VJamm, AV live shows and pieces like Timber.

That period and a more general AV concept will have its own story on AHOT at some point but first we want to come up to date. with some new more specialised AV work. In 2014 we made a series of studies using parallel Midi control of Audio and Visual Synthesis. We use the term AVS to describe this and started the AVS project to experiment with the basic idea that a useful definition of Audio Visual Synthesis is the simultaneous synthetic creation of Audio and Visual material.

These studies are fundamentally AV work and can be viewed on our YouTube channel.

Ableton Live and its arpeggiators and effects were used for the audio component. Visuals were from the brilliant modular video software VDMX + Polyphonic 1.29, a custom Quartz Plugin video synth for drawing coloured shapes triggered by Midi (design by Matt Black, coded by Lukasz Boroz).
