Research Salon Music Video, Visual Music and Interaction
Andrew Bucksbarg aka N_DREW creates audio-visual/VJ performance and interactive works, exploring digital-organic forms, live A/V processes and participatory technoculture, enthralling audiences with images, beats, ambient sounds and pixilated atmospheres.
Finding visual inspiration from experimental animation and cinema, as well as music inspired by club beats, pop musics and video game music, N_DREW's recent work explores moving images from custom video footage, mobile phones, the Internet, video games, wild flowers in southern California and simple techno-digital patterns and animations manipulated in real-time.
The artist performs with custom interfaces and game joysticks to mix and manipulate audio-visual material.
As a researcher and writer, Andrew reflects in an innovative way on networks and technology within social structures. Bucksbarg's practice is informed by and informs his writings.
Hosted by iRes researchers Ana Carvalho and Brendan Byrne as part of their ongoing research into VJ Theory.
