    070430 Coachella
    Project: Design Media Arts at UCLA
    Tuesday began the one week journey into the intensely immersive experience of Coachella. I was one VJ on a team of five who performed in the dance tent (Sahara) with every DJ/band for the full 3 days(except the few that brought their own people).

    We had the opportunity to work on two 20x30 ft LED screens, plus curtain with an embedded LED grid. In addition to our visuals and the music, there was a full light grid, laser light system, and gigantic disco ball.

    It helped me better understand the effect of immersive events on the audience. Each layer of visual and audio elements intensified the their reaction. Timing and moments of transition was important in creating tension and anticipation to draw out strong reactions.

    It was a really amazing experience being connected to both the audience and music in this way and I look forward to doing it again next year.
