Experimental Ghent-based popband UMM asked us to create visuals to accompany their live performances. Before we could even utter ‘umm’ Kru was part of the band. We invaded their backstage, set up a projector, plugged in our keyboards and played our freshly developed web-based visual instrument while the band blasted on stage.
The visual instrument consists of a variety of exciting animations that can be manipulated at will to give to each song an organic yet unique visual component during each individual performance. It is expandable to be used for future songs and even suited to create full-fledged music videos if the band would be so inclined. The illustrations were done by the talented Emily Lefèbre.
