WorldWide VJ Listings

I have done extensive research to locate VJ's the world over. -  This is our old listing, provided here strictly for historical reasons.  You really should look at our updated searchable VJ LISTINGS GLOSSARY.

Contact and link info included where known. Alias/Group name may be have only been used for one show on some occasions. Please provide us with updated info if you can fill in some of our blanks. Many links here are also in the main links area, which will be organized shortly.

If you want a dedicated page (or more) highlighting your VJ act, I require at least one picture, be it of you, your equipment, your output, or whatever. AVI's or other content 20 megs and under is also accepted for FREE hosting on our VJ server. Click on the "provide" link above to forward your info.  Note: Groups who have dedicated pages & content, have larger sized fonts.  Please consider counting yourself among them.

Brief Notes: Voodoo2/3 based 3D virtual performers dance to music. Custom Software, available by request to other VJ's.
Main Notes: Autopilot creates virtual go-go dancers for clubs, raves, parties and corporate events. The dancers are simulated and controlled in real-time, so they can respond instantly to the changing intensity of the music and the crowd. Our custom software runs on 3Dfx Voodoo accelerator cards and requires a Pentium-II class system or better. We've been running since October 1998 and in that time have performed at a number of events including Glastonbury, Burning Man, Tribal Gathering, Southport Dance Music weekender, Casio G-Club, Return To The Source, Wiggle, and many others. We will shortly be announcing a licensing program for our current- and next-generation software. We welcome collaboration and often perform as guests of other VJ companies. For a demo tape, contact demo@autopilot.co.uk

Mark is by origin a graphic designer and I have been trained as a network specialist. Everybody makes mistakes is all I have to say about that.

Contact: Maikel de Laat
Location: Eindhoven, the Netherlands
Email: Maikel.de.Laat@Bolesian.nl
website: very soon!
Info: I started in 1998 with live visuals for supporting the dutch techno/industrial band arte.fa(t 
( http://arte.fact.net ) At that time i wrote the first version of my custom software. The software enabled me to switch between 5 AVI files and add some simple effects. Right now, I work with some other bands also, and  i'm working on new software that has a modular architecture and interface. It will contain modules for AVI/MPG playing, video capturing, DVD playing, audio visualization, etc. It makes use of two monitors, one for the user interface and the other one for video output. The most interesting feature of my new program is that some effects can be controlled through a cell-phone connection. This means that a party visitor can dial in to my computer and control some of the visuals components themselves.

Nick Wallbank
Contact: Nick Wallbank
Location: Manchester, England, UK.
Phone: 0161 226 6520
Notes: I have been working with projected visuals for music for six years now and have worked with most major British electronica/dance acts including Orbital and Underworld. I originally worked on super-8 and 16mm film with the legendary Megadog organisation but now have my own digital video set-up which is far more flexible. I work both in clubs and with live bands but prefer producing a good, tight live visual set for a band as it is far more satisfying than sitting in front of a mixer for hours on end (although I must admit that I have yet to beat the feeling I experienced working from the top of a 20ft tower in the middle of 16,000 people in the main dance tent at the Glastonbury festival). My work is mainly based on a mix of motion graphics, mangled loops and samples and original dv footage. All my work is guaranteed 100% fractal free. Recent projects include the Total Eclipse Festival, a Ninja Tune European tour, working with Graham Massey of 808 State and providing projected video for Manchester's Millenium celebrations. Apart from music based work I am also a freelance camera operator, video editor and technician.

Nominum Ignotorum
Location: Vancouver, BC, CANADA.
Notes: Hi there.  We are a visuals team based in Vancouver, BC (for now).   We are drawn to the belief of producing high quality, professional, video art.  Our aim is to provide a multimedia event where the visual  atmosphere/environment plays a fundamental role. We do so through the use of slide projectors (for environmental effects) as well as a primary video projector which is connected to our computers. We are Visual Jockeys who believe in the visual aspect of music as much as the aural.  We treat our computers as the DJ treats his turntables and our videos like records; that is, we use software to mix and manipulate our visuals live to the music. We do not play "eyecandy" - pretty computer programs that run without assistance for long periods of time, irrespective of the flow of the music. Rather, we aim to bring visuals to the creative level of DJing.  We jockey visuals.  We do a live internet broadcast on Ninjatune's Piratetv  (www.piratetv.net), where our DJ plays off of our visuals just as much as we play off of his music. Check our website for further details.

Info: My name is Steve Hendry and a friend and myself run a lighting and projection company called "PROJECT 7", based on the east coast of Scotland, Dundee. We have been into animation and video for about two years. At the moment our rig consists of a complete stage lighting rig, intelligent lighting, martin robo scans and the usual lighting fx's. However our speciality is in customised projection, We have eight bell and howell 16mm projectors, approximately 24, 35mm slide projectors, 4 martin image scans,etc, etc, etc, We did Scotlands first live internet club cast in febuary this year and have been moving into video projection in a big way since hiring in three video projectors for that event. Since then we have managed to amass loads of software and bits of hardware relevant to the video thing. Up to now we have had to film all our video work onto 16mm film as we can't afford a video projector yet this is very costly and not very reliable!!! Our main contract is with Dundee University Students Association where we have worked for about five years. It is currently getting a complete refit in it's largest venue and we were asked to design the lighting rig and projection screens. At last we are finaly getting a video projector and a wrap round projection screen that covers all sides of the dance floor for other projections. I also work with another group of video jammers in Dundee. We may have a video gig in Holland and the Brittany folk festival before the year is out. We usually have live video camera footage, live computer generated graphics and stream video footage all into a panasonic wjave 55 and then ontol arge screens and projectors. The main guy is Glenn Millar.

Notes: I am also a video artist and VJ, and have been operating out here for some 10 years now under many different aliases and am responsible for much of the visuals locally, as far as video is concerned in clubs and galleries that is. I am a chaos / random orientated organism that creates huge multi-dimensional television installations in clubs either temporarily or permanent. I do have projection abilities, however, i prefer the emotions induced by a massive quantity of television monitors as oppose to projections. Ironically, we also do pyrotechs as well. I fire breath and specialize in explosive fire orientated performance art (aka guerilla style).

The Force Quit Resolution
Contact: 999@ibm.net
Location: Berlin, Germany
Company: ®© Corperation
Website: soon to come
Affiliated with: Digital Hardcore Recordings (DHR) www.digitalhardcore.com , RC Corporation & Philipp Virus.
Info: The Force Quit Resolution is a project by 2 VJ's (former Art Centre Students) and took 2 years of preperative work. It is concentrated around the concept of delivering a complete audio-visual show which rather be enjoyed in cinema or theatre environement, LIVE of course. The basic idea is to use samples and own work in such a way that it can be seen as a movie-like experience. In other words: T.F.Q.R. will use specially selected material (motion, audio, speech, picture) from unlimited sources and fils the gaps with own stuff to mix a completely new 'movie' with new meaning, new story and new message. This stuff is omny-political. T.F.Q.R. intends to push the current limitations of copyright without hurting other artists rights in order to pave the way for future VJ's just like the first DJ's did in the 70's. The current show is called 'The Sleeper Must Awaken' and focuses on the 'special' times we currently live in, what the future can bring if we harness the fruits right which we hold in our hands, visible or not. Visionaries in it's purest form.

Tomorrow Maximum
Contact: Mic Berends
Email: mic@mindesign.com
Website: http://www.mindesign.com
Notes: I am a musician and performance artist doing work under the name of Tomorrow Maximum. Synaesthetic work is my focus, generally sound from images and images from sound, well synchronised. The best non-real-time tools for this are after effects on the mac and flint + maya on sgi, as you can use audio data to drive animation, effects, and plugin parameters. it's a bit tedious at the moment, because what i do is filter frequency ranges (i.e. low/mid/high) to get those channels but there are a number of ways you can interpret this visually, say a simple trigger, envelope following, etc. as well as how you subsample to frame rates and cross-modulated control rates. sound from images is another ball of wax altogether, in both of these it's mainly how you construct your filters and connections between elements to get pleasing slash meaningful slash harmonic output. I'm also working on a live performance using ideas that can be implemented in real time, which limits you a bit currently due to CPU horsepower. these will be controlled with the buchla lightning II infrared wands or the i-cube sensor net along with some MIDI "tap shoes". http://www.onadime.com/ has the right idea, i've suggested a number of things to them but they've yet to return my email. i've written quite a few visual programs companies with some ideas - i'm beginning to suspect they like the ideas but fear trade-dress implementation lawsuits if they communicate with me even though i've stated that i'd rather not do it myself! . Dave is just starting in graphics coding and this is a big project for just 2 or 3 people (my other mate Mike is writing the dynamics engine). The music is approximately a cross between orbital, underworld, and aphex twin. my voice is approximately a cross between dave gahan (depeche mode) and roland orzabal (tears for fears). currently seeking female vocalist for beautiful duet. I am equal parts technician and artist. I'm not terribly interested in the fame thing, but in our media-driven society there is not much other choice if you've a message to get across. to gain mindshare you need a voice and a face, i've become convinced. If i find someone with a stronger sense of purpose than mine i will gladly be support staff, but not having come across talented and willing collaborators, i expect i will have to do it myself. this makes me appear to move at approximately 1/6 the speed of the rest of the human race! i'm sure you can commiserate.
