A major change has taken place at dance clubs worldwide: the advent
of the VJ. Once the term denoted the presenter who introduced music
videos on MTV, but now it defines an artist who creates and mixes video, live and in sync to music, whether at dance clubs and raves or art galleries and festivals. This book is an in-depth look at the artists at the forefront of this dynamic audio-visual experience.
Crucially, it combines how-to, showcase and reference elements. It opens with a series of articles on contextual and historical issues. The central section showcases the work of over 120 international VJs and the last chapter covers equipment (hardware and software) and typical stage
set-ups (explaining installing equipment, utilizing space, creating an environment to suit an audience, etc..), along with supplementary guidelines and tips on how to make a performance.
