One of the pioneers of audio visual performances, video artist Stuart Warren-Hill, got in touch with Televisual late last week to let us know about his new project, Holotronica, which, he says, involves using “self-created holographic visual synthesis” to create futuristic looking, attention-grabbing live 3d holographic performances.

"Holotronica is a groundbreaking a/v concept combining analog synthesizers with realtime midi triggered holographic visuals," adds Warren-Hill.

The results of all this are pretty stunning – see below for some examples.

Warren-Hill is no stranger to forward thinking audio visual work, being half of Ninja Tune a/v duo Hexstatic, the act behind the first entirely audio video cdrom album release, Rewind back in 2000.

Holotronica is doing a free live 3d holographic a/v performance on Saturday 13th November at the BFI Southbank, as part of (London-based moving image and digital arts organisation) onedotzero’s ‘adventures in motion festival 2010’.

Judging by this performance at the Kinetica Art Fair earlier this year, the BFI show should be well worth a visit.

Here’s a short clip from another Holotronica track, with Warren-Hill creating a real-time composition, triggered via midi from Ableton live.


And another one…


Finally, this is Warren-Hill performing with a weird musical instrument called the Eigenharp, creating live 3d holographic audio visual material at The Hospital Club around this time last year.

As well as the forthcoming gig, Holotronica is launching a 3d website, which goes live on 8th November at
