Astronaut Disco Visuals again had the privilege to get down with some collaged live, projected dancefloor eye candy for the best underground House Music getdown in LA. Scott K's We Own The Night has defined production value for LA's warehouse and unorthodox all night party space scene.
Enjoy this edited video featuring some of the moments of the visuals throughout the night.
On this magical occasion on Saturday, December 8th, 2012 we did the deal in an old church in downtown LA. I set up three projectors plus an overhead projector in the rafters above the dancefloor and hit two screens, one above the DJ and the other on the other side of the dancefloor. I also blasted the side wall with a wide angled projector to add movement and color to the stone and deteriorating cement wall across from where I was stationed.

View from where I spent the night working the visiuals gear. Here I'm playing with stain glass inspired collages with the overhead projector to pay omage to the history of the space which was once a Methodist church.
This is the view as you climbed the stairs to the main room. I set up a simple slide projector to place the flower on the wall at the top of the stairs.
DJ's for the night include WOTN party designer and LA deep house torch bearer Scott K, opening set from FunkyGraffish and a very special and rare appearance by Chicago House Music Legend and Pioneer Jesse Saunders.
I collaged a combo of personally created animations, homemade stills, found images, found videos, a load of effects all mixed live on the spot with much of the input and motion created live on the spot to suit the music.
