Happy new year everyone. LOOK AT THIS LINEUP. We’ve been working hard and against many odds trying to get the annual BL_K Noise show ready – and we’ve finally arrived. If you’re around the Los Angeles area that weekend, especially for NAMM – come out, hear amazing music, and most of all, lets have fun.
The 8th annual convention inspired event will present an amalgamation of Audio / Visual live performances from various corners of North America. Showcasing avante garde, left field and thought provoking sound, BL_K Noise’s musical program will focus on artists that implement video along with their sets for a full immersive experience. Every performer will be accompanied by expert content manipulators / creators. Oktaform, Effix and others will administer their high caliber compositions live. This will be a unique nightlife experience. Attendance very necessary.

Steady State Fate
Last track of my live modular set at Tokyo Modular Festival 2014. Mesmerizing laser visuals by BR-Laser. The module used is a creation from BR laser, and makes a laser projector work in the fashion of an analog oscilloscope in X/Y mode. The signal flow from the interface module to the laser is fully analogue, because of this the visuals are extremely responsive, and the module can connect to RGB laser projectors.
