In june 2019 Walter Verdin contacted me to assist him in restaging his videoconcert ‘VIDEORHYTHMICS’ from 1984. There were some technical challenges to tackle: finding the right 4:3-ratio projector, testing vintage Barco SCM 2850 monitors and recreating a PAL environment on modern gear while eliminating all latency problems. The people at Vidisquare still had the vintage gear and peripherals in stock. Gathering the original band was impossible but most of the original musicians were back on the job. The two concerts at OPEK served as a testcase, the production is ready for touring. There’s a review (in dutch) about the piece and the new staging by Dagmar Dirkx. Get in touch if you’re interested!
