Plastikman & Derivative TouchDesigner contest

Derivative is pleased to announce the next-gen of their collaboration with techno-futurist Richie Hawtin who is unleashing PLASTIKMAN LIVE 2010 a much-anticipated series of live shows produced in collaboration with Minus & Derivative to launch at this year's Timewarp festival on March 27th, 2010.

The influential Plastikman performance at MUTEK 2004 was visually driven by Derivative's powerful software tool TouchDesigner enabling Richie to orchestrate sound and visual compositions generatively and in real time; the technology altering the course of how electronic music could be performed and experienced live.

That was then. With the current generation of TouchDesigner 077 completely reengineered, the team has built an information-rich bridge between Richie's Ableton Live rig and Derivative's TouchDesigner. Derivative will release the TouchDesigner-Live Bridge to its users this year. Hawtin's visual artist Ali Demirel has been working closely with Derivative's Jarrett Smith and Markus Heckmann in LA and Toronto to create the content and a custom performing interface for the shows.

Another Hawtin/Minus/Derivative collaboration invites the community to create their own visuals to original Plastikman tracks using TouchDesigner. Hawtin and Derivative have packaged and made available for download a complete toolset that includes a purpose-built TouchDesigner synth and four Plastikman tracks enabling participants with full support to produce visuals in the same real-time generative environment as the show's. Winning entries are to be incorporated into the live events. To read more about the contest please go to http://www.derivative.ca/Plastikman

In the Sonar Pub, the night of Friday June 18 (morning of June 19), just after Magda finishes impressing the crowds with her minimal interpretations on the decks, Richie Hawtin will once again partner with visual architects Ali Demirel and Derivative to present the ever-evolving Plastikman Live show. The experience includes a reinterpetation of his Plastikman productions dating back to the seminal Sheet One album from 1993, LED cage now being referred to as 'The Thunderdome' and an iPhone application SYNK developed to help close the gap between the performer and the audience, developed solely for this tour by Bryan McDade and R J Fischer (hexler.net).
