A bit of a #laterpost of some tech we created while producing Gawker Media's HUSH Silent Disco event. With a lot of DJ experiences these days there are elaborate visual shows that accompany the music. Since we did not have time to work with the DJs prior (DJ Kalkutta, Dapwell from Das Racist and Chris Keating from Yeasayer), we created a suite of creative visuals with all of the movement within them generated by the frequencies of the music itself that the DJs were playing. We then integrated social scraping with a simple iPad moderation tool and ended up with a dynamic and generative visual dispay that was as unique as the silent event itself.
The Silent Disco visual experience was coded in Cinder.
