One of the great things about hosting Resolume workshops is you get to meet so many amazing people from all over the world.
One such amazing person is Danny Purdue.
After joining us for a session last year, he showed us the impressive work he was doing for Light Nightclub in Las Vegas. Soon after that, we got word he would be running Resolume for the visuals on the Aerosmith world tour. Live visuals are common in EDM and club scenes, but still a relatively new thing on rock shows, so of course we had to get the lowdown on this.
Here's the interview with Danny himself.
This blog is about Resolume, VJ-ing and the inspiring things the Resolume users make. Do you have something interesting to show the community?

This months' new releases go bang in a big way.
Newcomer on the label Ablaze Visuals is not just a foot soldier in the war on our pixels. He's general mayhem and he takes no prisoners.

So, the workshops at Res HQ are over for 2014, but you can still learn lots about VJ'ing.
The wonderful guys from Doc Optic have been publishing awesome video tutorials lately. In a calm and soothing tone, VJ'ing with Resolume is explained. The great thing is that the tutorials don't follow the 'this-button-does-that' format, but rather explain how you can improve your show using certain techniques and tricks.
Sometimes it's good to remember life is not all about optimized GPU codecs, gigantic LED walls and how many outputs you can run of a single computer. Sometimes life is about using visual art to transform spaces. And if we're really lucky, we can also use it to transform people.
Recently we received an email from Roxanna VJ Thai that reminded us of exactly that. And we'd like to share that letter with you all as well.
We don't care that it's gloomy and dark outside for us, because spring has arrived in the southern hemisphere. So this month we have some fresh and sunny releases for you.

Between all the EDM LED screen madness and the onslaught of geometric projection mapping, sometimes it's nice to see something completely different.
Such a thing is Landschapslumen by the Dutch artist collective Beeldjutters:
