The AV Jam system is exhibiting at the beta_space facility within the Sydney Powerhouse Museum, Australia. AV Jam is a generative audio-visual system that is controlled by multiple MIDI sliders. It is designed to encourage collaboration by having 5 controllers, one each for Drums, Bass, Harmony, Lead and Video. It is a real-time system that allows visitors to the Beta_Space to create their own audio-visual performances. The installation will be open to the public for 6 weeks from February to mid March 2008.
The AV Jam system was developed in Impromptu by Andrew Sorensen and Andrew Brown based on collaborative research into interactive content creation systems with Steve Dillon.
The AV Jam system enables the performance of music videos such as this short example.
