What’s a VJ or video Jockey?
A VJ is a performance artist who creates moving visual art on large displays or screens, often at events such as concerts, nightclubs and music festivals, and usually in conjunction with other performance art. This results in a live, multimedia performance that can include music, actors or dancers as well as live and pre-recorded video.
VJing is part of a world wide movement redefining the live music experience. VJ’s use specialised software and hardware to mix video and lighting “LIVE” in realtime for music and theatrical performances. Its humble roots began in the early rave scene and made its way into the mainstream through musical acts like U2, BJORK and other well known artists. Today VJ’s are a must have for large festivals and concerts.
