A Gigzine add-on, called AudienceVJ, ran alongside the launch performance; allowing attendees to develop animation loops that were synchronised to the music. We emailed the audience as they bought gig tickets explaining about the event and detailing the playlist titles The Bays were using. We also encouraged them to email us images that could be used in the performance in response to these (we had several hundred sent to us!).
AudienceVJ itself comprises of a two channel animation system and dedicated server software, each animation is made up of an 8 image loop that was synchronised to Andy Gangadeen 's (The Bays drummer) actions. Audience members were able to select images from playlist-linked image banks and submit them live to the audienceVJ server for display.
