AUGUST made this interactive video installation for the music-devoted Tjing Tjing bar in Cape Town. It integrates information about the music playing with a mix of pre-recorded video footage.
AUGUST produced the video and wrote the software for the program that pulls information from iTunes and slots it seamlessly into the video to create a practical piece of entertainment. The current song information displays every 30seconds so bar patrons don’t have to ask what’s playing.
The video footage, shot at Tjing Tjing, features close-up clips of a number of their regular customers. A program cycles these clips in random sequences that appear to be timed to whatever song is playing.
