New York-based visualist Joshue Ott creates cinematic visual improvisations, performed live and projected in large scale. Working from hand-drawn forms manipulated in real-time with superDraw, a software instrument of his own design, Ott composes evolving images that reside somewhere between minimalism, psychedelia, and Cagean chance, delivered with an inescapably human touch. Supple yet digital, ephemeral but instantly memorable, Ott renders sound into vision, yielding an immersive multi-sensory experience that is at once immediate and synergistic, a unique visual narrative born in the moment.
Performing with musicians from all genres between classical and avant-electronica,
Ott's visuals have been featured at Communikey, Mutek, the San Francisco International Film Festival, Yuri's Night Bay Area, Le Cube (Paris), the Playgrounds Audiovisual Art Festival (Netherlands), Boston Cyberarts, and the 2006 Ars Electronica Animation Festival. He has performed with the American Composer's Orchestra at Carnegie Hall; as part of the Boston Cyber Arts Festival; and frequently at venues throughout New York City, including Le Poisson Rouge, Roulette, the Knitting Factory, and the Stone. Upcoming performances are scheduled at MassMOCA and the Plateaux Festival in Poland.
He currently runs Interval Studios, a small web development company specializing in flash programming and all sorts of wonderful animation.
