Sci Fi dance club “Light and Loaded” experience hits Vision Club in Chicago with Filo and Peri

Light and Loaded @ Vision

Sci-fi DJ Dance club show at Vision in Chicago 9 April 2011

New York based Filo and Peri DJ duo are challenging the status quo of the traditional use of mixing consoles and turntables. On Saturday at the Vision Club in Chicago, they were determined to show the audience a new set, visual experience and technology set in a show called “Light and Loaded”, which is best described as a sci fi DJ dance club experience with a new visual experience not seen before.

The HoloGraphic (Hololite90) transparent screen and twin set of HoloDesk interactive consoles rocked the dance floor. Filo and Peri brought their imaginationa and skills together to create and realise a new experience for their fans.

Wikipedia describes Filo and Peri as a New York based production team. Filo and Peri have held the number one spot on the Billboard dance, as well as an entry into the UK National Top 40. Their debut artist album “Nightplay” hit shelves in November 2009 with the help of Paul van Dyk, Vandit & Unknown World Management, and Vandit Records.

Outside the studio Filo & Peri have been playing in nightclubs across the world. From Amnesia in Ibiza to the far reaches of Luxy in Taiwan, Australia and back in their home country at Nocturnal Festival, their blend of euphoric trance, driving techno, and exclusive edits and mashups is winning them an international army of fans.

Filo & Peri have come a long way from their humble beginnings to having built up a solid catalog of productions throughout the years on the biggest labels around the world.

Light and Loaded indicates a new stage set and move into a new look that have other DJs envious and fans exclaiming OMG.

So congratulations to Filo and Peri that you have raised the bar and joined an elite group of artists who believe that clubbers world wide seek a new visual experience … and you pulled it off.

For artists and bands who want to migrate to a new generation of control and visual systems we welcome your contact and interest. Further information on the HoloDesk interactive DJ Solutions visit HoloDesk. The HoloDesk Interactive systems are available in full built systems and DIY kits.

HoloDesk converges entertainment and technology.

HoloDesk technology

Worldwide DJ’s  have been enthusiastic about the virtual dual image HoloDesk interactive DJ surface that allows full manipulation by the brush of the hand, flick or drag of a finger and to create live dynamic music. HoloDeck places the DJ centre stage.

How two distant paths crossed from across the world with a global ambition.

12 years ago Ibza based Tom Trautsch had an idea after playing in front of 12.000 clubber in world’s biggest club: Privilege on Ibiza. How great it would be not only to mix several records together on five turntables, no, to go further and to mix and re-arrange in real-time: parts, slices, samples of different tracks and rebuild them to a new track with for instance self composed bass lines and other extractions like a saxophone-line or a synth-hook from another track. And the performance would be done by his hands on a big screen.

Minority Report“ was the visualisation of Tom’s Idea: Interactive Touch screen Technology to control the creative process. Direct Access to most important parameters.

A complete new world of creating music in a real-time mode. The DJ mutates to a new kind of arranger/remixer. The last years Tom’s idea got more and more real because of the tremendous evolution of music software. One of the biggest challenges was to synchronize all the different tracks/hooks/basslines/drumkits etc. and to get everything together in the right musically harmony.

Unbeknown to Tom on the other side of the world in New Zealand, Kevin Andreassend had approached the aspect of touch surfaces from the hardware and engineering perspective. Drawing on the interactive and display technology components that his company ICE AV Technology Ltd was already selling to clients world wide, Kevin set about to design a system that would create a wow factor in the entertainment industry.

It was not long before Tom and Kevin’s paths crossed and the spark of collaboration, became a real synergy to realise Tom’s dream of memorising audiences and redefining the DJ experience. The influence of Tom’s Know-How and the technological solution from Kevin brought them together for this big adventure:

Subsequently Tom Trautsch has been appointed as the European HoloDesk Product Amabassador. His non-sales role allows him to concentrate on the creative aspect on interactive DJ’ing, composing music live and perfecting the process. Kevin acknowledges that “Tom’s experience and expertise is a valuable cornerstone right at the start of the HoloDesk journey. We now welcome others to join us in this unique adventure and the first step in communicating the new way of DJ’ing

Tom will perform on Saturday 12th of February at in Düsseldorf, Germany and it will be the first time worldwide that a twin pair of the Edgeless Holodesk Surfaces will be used live.

The official HoloDesk is currently in production under the guidance of Tom Trautsch and will be online from Wednesday 19’th of January. Photos are already posted. Stay tuned for the beginning of a new decade of DJ’ing.
