i´m a student for visual communication in berlin (udk) and also new into this field of media arts and realtime visualization. I´m doing my final project right now (only 2 months left) and i´m not sure what is the best solution for this case.
The project is about a costumade dj/vj perfomance, which allows to play as a DJ and a VJ at the same time but with keeping the focus on the music so that the visuals (live generated and pre-produced clips and images) follow the parameters and metadata of an ableton dj set.
I design a couple of themes for different genres in the electronic music dance music field. Disco, House, Techno, Minimal, etc. Each with a unique design that include additional parameters like label or dedace info to catch the mood of the sound. For that kind of design i´m not sure if i really need a modular system like max msp / jitter or could I also use a "normal" vj software like resolome? I never saw vj softwares with live generated graphics. Maybe someone could me a tip, what is possible here. I have no experience in programming and definitly need a programmer or better a programmer who is also a vj.
I have my doubts that a normal vj software allows costum live-generated graphics and automatically follows the ableton parameters. And as an ableton user the bridge to max was for my logic consequence.
You also can PM me.
Thanks a lot for your feedback
