Pioneering real-time computer graphics

Through the early to mid 1990's "Tim Gruchy designed and conceptualised the interactive components and videos [for the Australian band "Vision Four 5"]. Their live performance had them standing on stage, waving arms in the air in front of large screens, not just for that 'put your hands up in the air' rave momentum, but also to use their bodies as controllers for triggering the sound and visuals via digital interactive computer systems – video cameras converted into real–time computer graphics which triggered midi sounds and visual trigger points adding extra layers to the live performance."

Nam-June Pike TV Cello

"In the late 1960s, Paik combined performance's expressive capacity with the technological possibilities of altering TVs and creating videos. Charlotte Moorman, a cellist, performance artist, and producer of the New York Avant–Garde Festivals, became one of Paik's most significant collaborators as they continued to produce work throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s. Paik designed sculptures from variously sized TV monitors that Moorman would wear and interact with during the performances. Among the video works resulting from their collaboration were TV Bra for Living Sculpture (1969), TV Glasses (1971), and TV Cello (1971)."
