From March 2020, the covid19 pandemic, set up a major change in the events landscape, moving everything online.
Here’s a selection of events where I created the visuals, sometimes it was live recording, sometimes live streamed, the content was prepared beforehand and sometimes, properly a real-time live streaming.

GLXY DJ Set – visuals by L’ Aubaine (UKF On Air: Hyper Vision) – live streamed 24 July 2020
Harriet Jaxxon DJ Set – visuals by L’aubaine (UKF On Air: Hyper Vision) – live streamed on 3 July 2020
For GLXY and Harriet Jaxxon sets, it was made with 1h non-stop of live visuals, mixing analogue video synth and digital techniques 2D, 3D, audio reactive. And post-edition to have the visuals on a white wall. Keying out the background behind Harriet Jaxxon, to place the visuals in the back of her. For GLXY, the keying was impossible to do properly, it’s for that reason that the visuals are on top of the djs, using different blending modes.

VJing remotely and live streamed required to think a bit differently and to adapt to the situation, latency, lost connection, computer struggling… :). Fun experience.

Technical explanations for the videos done for Middle East & North Africa Livestream Special
The event was streamed live with videos that were prepared beforehand.
First the DJs recorded their sets, by video, or just audio at home, in a studio, wherever they wanted. Then, the visual artists we received the video or audio of the DJ set.
Here are some steps:
– Listening to the set several time to get the feel and to get inspired.
– Creating new content that fit with the music.
– Organising the content in the VJ software, practising the VJ set (live visuals)
– Recording the VJ set in one go, non-stop. Redoing it if there was too many mistakes.
– Editing the final video, with VJ set, the DJ set (video or just audio) and syncing with the audio. Editing also by adding some effect, blending mode, etc or fixing up some bits, etc, adding the overlay with name, logos, etc…
For this type of work, it’s easily 3 days full time of work.
I’ve used footage that I’ve shot in Morocco, and made more abstract animations in after effects.

Born Twice & L’Aubaine at Dance Culture
Dance culture – Saturday Night Lockdown – 04.04.20
Here’s my VJ set alongside beautiful melodic techno DJ set of Born Twice.
The DJ and VJ sets were in real-time, live streamed. The recording of the visuals, were done projecting it on the wall and recording with a camera. And the dj set, was also recorded separately.
Online there was latency and many cuts.
Full set, with about 10min missing of the live visuals in the middle, but there’s some footages from the viewer’s side.
