invsys 3.1 - brk_b.t setup, gent, kunstencentrum vooruit, 03.12.98

the setup consists of two computers with keyboards in front of two retro hewlett packard monochrome displays. one of those terminals controls the drums, the other one the bass. d&b basically. both have a beta version of the brk_b.t software running, one with breakbeat drumloops, one with darkstep bassloops (no u-turn/optical style). synchronized to the sound there is a realtime videoprojection that is envisioning diverse parameters from the sound source. technically spoken there is the brk_b.t software sending midi signals to a pc running a custom app using a 3d accelerated graphicscard.

the "sample it" party was the final event of a sampling workshop that took place at the kunstencentrum and was organized by gerd keunen.
