A four channel video projection casts the performance of Live Footage (comprising instrumentalists Topu Lyo and Mike Thies) on the walls of the venue through a layer of realtime processing. All material, both visual and musical, is generated live, and the projections foreground the physicality of the performers. Custom video software (including novel OpenGL filters hosted in Max/MSP/Jitter) facilitates a musical approach in which visual phrases are performed as part of the ensemble.

For LA shows, Sue Huang (of Knifeandfork) built a mobile camera unit which was passed among the audience, adding another feed to be processed and layer of immediacy for the audience. These shows also featured a set design of rear projection screens.
