Custom Videopak for the groundbreaking OP-Z audio / visual synthesizer by Teenage Engineering. OP-Z iOS App 1.1, 1.2 (This videopak is formatted for iOS) (I haven't tested in Mac app 1.1, but it should work. The newest Mac app 1.2 doesn't recognize the videopaks.)

About the artist:

Naomi Oliver is an award winning multimedia artist from Australia, working mainly from the Blue Mountains, NSW. Studied BA Electronic/Fine Arts at the University of Western Sydney 2003.

"My major in my university studies was video art, when VHS was just starting to be superseded by DV tapes. I loved editing with VHS in particular, as I learned to embrace inherent fragility and failings of image and sound with this medium. Presumably because of this, I have always had a high tolerance for bad radio reception, walkie talkies picking up other signals, worn audio cassettes/video tapes, crossed phone lines. Over the years I have spent time experimenting with different computer programs to see how far they can be pushed, or used in a way not intended - such as sound pieces produced by exporting Microsoft Word files as audio. I have always loved short-form video art, so GIF art is the perfect medium for me."

"Great film clips are one of the most impactful of art forms as far as I'm concerned. The combination of amazing visuals and audio have the potential to elevate each element and create an even more visceral experience."

Artist Series videopaks are based on the GIF Looper template. The GIF Looper videopak is loaded with 14 GIF or video loops that repeat endlessly. All time is mapped to the average BPM that is sent from the OP-Z app. There is not a hard start / stop for the loops, for several reasons. The loops start when the app is enabled but the screen is black until you trigger a loop. You can trigger the 14 loops from the bottom 14 gray keys. You can trigger them at 1/2 time by pressing shift, then the loop key. 

There are effects you can enable from the numbered black keys. Some are multi effects and some effects use knobs to adjust parameters. The last two effects buttons “9” and “0” are multi-effects. “9” will randomly turn on/off and stack effects. This happens based upon the midi notes that your OP-Z is sending. Each note triggers a random number that might fall into the threshold for a given effect. So the more notes that are played the more likely effects will be turned on or changed. “0” functions the same way but for triggering the loops. If you want to just play music and let the visuals surprise you, record the Loop randomizer “0” for the full length of the motion track.

Effect button “7” turns on analog glitch controls. The button must be held down or recorded to keep the glitch controls working. Control the amount of glitch by the WHITE LED knobs. Effect button “8” turns on color controls. When first enabled, the screen will be black or all gray. You need to adjust the GREEN LED knobs to control all aspects of color. There is lots of power in this one setting.
