Gyz Gates


On the day Hamas had a ‘landslide victory’ in the Palestinian elections —about
which especially Benjamin Netanyahu (who else?) commented in a really bizarre
fashion— I’m taking y’all log readers to places you probably never went before.
Step into a world of MX50’s, video loops, video ‘hangovers’ and stuff that’s
especially funny when played backwards. You guessed right, todays’ field trip
takes us into the weird world of VJ-ing.

Gyz will soon post something useful on his last dropped knowledge bomb called
‘GZA version 0.3’, but I’ll try and explain what’s so damn good about it in plain
ignorant non-VJ lingo. The thing is, Gyz (technically backed up by his pals at
Telco Systems) came up with a way to broadcast full PAL —which means ‘the
full size of your TV screen’— looped playbacks, real time. Simply slide your
selected movie-clips in the herefore designed ‘box’ and watch ’em go.
Apparantly NO ONE before had ever come up with the luminous idea of creating
such a handy tool. Pretty strange, huh? I mean, looping stuff is pretty much
‘what a VJ does for a living’. At least, it is in my conservative mind.

Anyway, if you’re not VJ-ing often, check out the manual to the GZA v. 0.3
software anyway. Gyz got into that whole ATARI 2600 games look and I can’t
say otherwise than that it looks rad!

Where can we find all this suave material? you ask. Easy, on the brand new
‘Gyz La Rivière’ website. Up and running, baby.

    5 jaar geleden heb ik een noodoproep gedaan op forums of dit principe uberhaupt mogelijk was; want arkaos en 1/4 pal was het gewoon niet. Ondanks dat de lezers blij waren dat er nog iemand was met dezelfde vraag, bleef het antwoord NEE, niet mogelijk.

    5 jaar later hangt mijn MX50 inmiddels in de bomen en heb ik de roteb blij gemaakt met 150 videobanden. Wat gebeurd er; GYZ en Telco komen met een antwoord waar ik lang geleden tevergeefs naar zocht. Vervelend? Te laat? neu, we gaan gewoon weer beginnen. Maak je borst maar nat, Ted! Werkt als een trein, boys!
