Project #15.2 RT-MediaCycle: towards a Real-Time Use of MediaCycle in Performances and Video Installations


Residency at iMAL, Brussels

(This performance didn’t feature VideoCycle at the time.)

Behind the scenes

Interfacing with PureData and GEM


This project aims at developing tools to extend the use of the MediaCycle software to live performances and installations. In particular, this requires real-time recording and analysis of media streams (e.g., video and audio). These tools are developed as patches for the PureData (Pd) software which is widely used by the artistic community. This project is a collaboration with the Belgian video artist Bernard Delcourt in duo with Belgian musician Delphine Havaux. Bernard will incorporate MediaCycle in his interactive video installations and performances soon.
