Just saw Dj shadow last night in cincy, very nice. He had some awesome visuals, and i feel like i owe whoever did them a compliment. Anybody out there know who did them? I think he said "Doc" or someting, hard to say. Rockin set. He played for about 3 hours... f*ck yea.

Yup I saw him in Spain last summer, very good visuals and excellent synchronisation with the music. And since I've always been a big fan of the music, this was like a dream :) The crowd was completely ecstatic too. Unfortunately the concert only lasted 1h30 because it was on a festival and other artists were scheduled next :( (all others concerts sucked compared to this one... LOL)
As for who did this, I think the name was mentionned on the eyecandy mailing list a few times but I don't remember it, maybe you can do a search there.

yeh saw that in norwich uk a few weeks back the visuals were pretty intense, especially the zoom in from space on the vinyl and the black guy driving, i thought the vj was called ceo or something but searched over the net and found nothing hope u have better luck

i saw him too (this summer in NL) it was nice, but there was a lots of live-camera switching (his hands, the crowd) - i didn't like that since people were not dancing/moving, they were just standing in some kind of nirvana stage, so there was no interesting materials for the camera...
but hey... with this music, you can forgive anything:)

Haha myself I heard it was "Chris", I wonder if he gives a different name on each concert ;) Anyway I just checked the eyecandy archive and it is supposed to be "Ben Stokes" of Tino Corp who is behind the visuals... so we were all wrong :p

Also saw the Shadow live thing here in Norwich, UK.
Will - need to hook up - will PM you
V V V impressive.
> good content (crisp/clear/sharp & funny/moody where need be), nicely timed, looked v v good (3 screens, 3 big barcos (?) with w/a lenses, 2 large face sculptures with projs on 'em) & shadow had a bash at a short av set using 'learn to play drums' type vids.
V V Good
He kept on saying big-up C.O.D for the visuals but chatting to them afterwards it was indeed the guys behind Tino Corp out of SF.
They were using a midi keyb triggering 3 diff (mac) laptops - each
hit would trigger diff clips on ea. laptop for ea. screen (wether it
be 3 diff images or 1/3 of one big image). Didn't get software name but i wanna know..... think they said something they'd made in MAX..
as well as 2/3 cameras, mx20, matrix , normal vid switcher & a tbc
was about all we could see/work out/get out of them.
Excellent visuals, made our night. Good to see big name DJ 'working' with visuals & actually having a go himself (think he was tapping out midi rythyms on some form of drum pad with alterable speeds for the av bit @ the end).
Great show - if you get a chance. Do it........

Yea, since yesterday I've confirmed it as being C.O.D. The clips were all great, lots of work done to crank them out. I liked the time lapse idea, which was sold short at some points, but by no means was it a bad show. That show will bake my brain for a month, props to shadow and cod for pulling of one hell of a portable euphroic experience. Peas.
