Video Rodeo is the name of my custom live video performance
system. Actually its much more than that. Its really Evel Knievel,
Monster Trucks, Harry Houdini, bull riders and more all rolled
into one. Presented as a live maverick video spectacular. I wear a black Stetson when I perform and I mean it.
Performing with The Video Rodeo I have complete non-linear control
of computer playback broadcast quality video. I'm able to mix
it live with other video sources, creating an ever changing
tableaux of moving images. With the touch of a button I am able
to summon any video clip I desire and control it (speed, direction,
loop, loop length and position, etc.) completely on the fly.
I mix live, the computer controlled video with other prerecorded
video sources through a video mixer which allows me to manipulate
and process the multiple simultaneous layers of moving images.
I display the video using multiple large screen projections
in conjunction with a second video switcher to route discreet
video sources to different projection screens at different times.
Among other places, the Video Rodeo was the engine behind the
video projection system for STREB's
internationally touring show ACTION HEROES.
