Nicholas C. Raftis III Demo Reel

Nicholas Raftis IIII like to get some variety up here by featuring projects from big post houses, cool student work and some interesting techniques and styles that I've never seen before. This one came via Charlie Forbes, one of our Toolfarm Forum Experts.

Nicholas C. Raftis III, a fellow Michigan artist, is a video/audio artists create inherently fused synaesthetic animations and music, via programming generative systems in Max/Msp/Jitter by Cycling 74. I have no idea what that means, but the result is really interesting and fun. His work deals with abstractions of space and reality.

He has performed live music and video under the pseudonym "OOO" at numerous large scale electronic music shows, alongside notable artists such as Juan Atkins, Wu-Tang Clan, Jimmy Edgar, Richard Devine and more. He has done interactive audio/visual installations, published albums of music on many record labels, and screened films in festivals worldwide.

This is Nicholas' Demo Reel. I would like to point out the twisting effect on the city scape and the cool graffiti effects. Very cool, indeed.

Note: Link to video fixed. Sorry.
