VJ Book - Audio-Visual Art + VJ Culture
The VJ Book is out now. Edited by Michael Faulkner at D-Fuse and published by Laurence King. Dienststelle is featured on four pages.
Page 104-105 in the germany chapter shows some stills of my videos and an interview, page 176-177 shows my setup from a year ago which is a bit outdated by now. There’s also a DVD inside with the Video of “Neue Stadt (Skizze 8)” (Music by Alva Noto).
A major change has taken place at dance clubs worldwide: the advent of the VJ. Once the term denoted the presenter who introduced music videos on MTV, but now it defines an artist who creates and mixes video, live and in sync to music, whether at dance clubs and raves or art galleries and festivals. This book is an in-depth look at the artists at the forefront of this dynamic audio-visual experience.
Crucially, it combines how-to, showcase and reference elements. It opens with a series of articles on contextual and historical issues. The central section showcases the work of over 120 international VJs and the last chapter covers equipment (hardware and software) and typical stage set-ups (explaining installing equipment, utilizing space, creating an environment to suit an audience, etc..), along with supplementary guidelines and tips on how to make a performance.
