A live visual VJ set for Meidän Festivaali celebrating Jean Sibelius and especially his wife, Aino. Together with my brother we produced visuals for 4 concerts in total.
We did not know of the performances in advance, so I built a live visual set capable of adapting to any type of music. All effects were reactive to the music being played and we could control things by hand as well during the live performance. 2 persons were required to control the visuals and keep them going at all times. It felt like playing an instrument as a member of the band. We could play off of the performers and they of us as they were encompassed by the screen.
I also designed the stage which was a first for me.
The animation that I created as an extra piece for my graduation thesis from Lahti University of Applied Sciences – The Institute of Design in 2006. The background painting was done by artist Pekka Veikkolainen and the sound design was done by Joonatan Portaankorva.
