Society Visual Music continues to explore the social and cultural repercussions of the pandemic through video and sound. The project was formed by the limitations of the pandemic, particularly the need to communicate electronic music performance in video packages. As we begin to physically gather together again, everything is not the way it was. Among other schisms, we are divided between our digital and physical selves more than ever. In order to make this change visible, Society Visual Music’s Odyssey will be projected on a screen located outside at Iris Film Collective in Burrard View Park. The projection of a DJ set will stand-in for a physical DJ and set-up. Society Visual Music will film the audience and space during the casual screening event. The live footage will be combined in real time with the Odyssey projection using TouchDesigner, immediately turning the experience digital and 2-D, equalizing audience and performer on screen. We propose a fun, interactive and experimental film screening to be part of Capture Photography Festival.
