LET THE TRUMPET TALK – new music video from Matt Von Roderick – directed by Kristin Hanggi. Projections by Jon 9

Check out this new music video from jazz trumpet artist Matt Von Roderick, directed by Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages) and featuring psychedelic projections by JON 9.

Matt has a unique musical talent – a composer, lyricist, trumpet player AND singer — seamlessly blending elements of jazz with an R&B vibe… VERY danceable… (When’s the last time you could say that about a JAZZ TRUMPET video ??)
Lots of great creative fun working with Matt and Kristin and the crew… Looking forward to more collaborations.

HOLONYNE TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASE:  HIPPOTIZERS

For the last four years I have been working with Hippotizer Media Servers from Green Hippo in London, distributed in the US by TMB.  There are lots of cool reasons (besides the name – who doesn’t want a green hippo ??) why I have used these servers in two major commercial installations and lots of art projects, nightclub gigs, and production scenarios.

SOME HIPPOTIZER PROJECTS

 

HOLONYNE SYSTEM DESIGN: HI-PERFORMANCE HIPPO SYSTEM
(1) Hippo HD w/ HD-SDI input
(1) Panasonic digital image mixer

FLO: PROMETHEON

In 2004 I created an HDTV video art show called FLO for broadcast on the first hi-def 24-hour satellite netowrk, VOOM / Cable Vision.

This piece, PROMETHEON, was our first show and features Courtney Marit displaying her art as a fire dancer and discussing her thoughts as a performer and artist.
(Part 2 below)

“While I was heading up LAB HD, a channel devoted to video art, I commissioned a sequence from FLO, an HD video cycle created by Jon9.  It was a remarkable feast for the senses, integrating hypnotic video with original music compositions, and it proved to be one of the more popular broadcasts that year.
