Even after 20 years, VJ-ing still lacks real control over beat synchronisation and that means that VJ-content, which is meant to contribute to the excitement of music and is driven by a dominant pulse, cannot react to the rhythm. Jaap Drupsteen has been working on developing music visualisation as an art form in order to make the audience listen with greater concentration, allowing them to hear more details, making any performance more exciting. Recently, through the the Videosync plugin - presented in ADE Beamlab 2015 by the developers Mattijs Kneppers and Hidde de Jong with a demo by Kölsch - the production and live-control of precise and long lasting sync-to-the-beat music visualisation has become possible. Jaap Drupsteen will show excerpts of his recent show at the Gogbot Festival, which is a compilation of his VJ-works The Rhythm Painter which is being exhibited at the Rijksmuseum in Twenthe until November 6th.
