Over the last year I’ve been working like a crazy person with Chris Vik on our company Ethno Tekh.
It has taken us all around the world doing interactive audio visual performances and installations. While this has been an amazing experience it has meant that I haven’t had a lot of time to develop Splash but that is all about to change. We have learned a lot over the year of intensive work and are now reworking our entire audio visual approach from the ground up. This means that Splash is now being rewritten from the ground up and will be our primary visual tool for all of our Ethno Tekh work.
The rewrite of Splash has been given a working title of ‘Splash: Labs’ as it is a slightly different approach to the original Splash and is still quite experimental.
Labs will have a much more traditional VJ software influence in the say it handles layering and triggering of generative visual elements. Throughout the development I will be adding back in more of the real time compositions and drawing aspects from the original Splash experiment.
I will be running an open development of Splash: Labs, meaning I will be doing regular updates, keeping a rough development blog and allowing anyone to download and use it free for non commercial purposes. If you want to know more about Splash: Labs, jump over to the about page (still being built) or the video or screens page to see it in action.
