Eric Barry Drasin @ Glowing Pictures BEMF 2013 Realtime Visuals Excerpts from Eric Barry Drasin on Vimeo.


Eric Barry Drasin did a VJ performance for Glowing Pictures at the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival Glasslands Stage. For this performance he used ZERO pre-recorded video content. All video was created in realtime and looped to go with the music that was being performed on stage. This video is a compilation of some of the content that was created over the course of the evening.

Music by DJ Sliink from his Soundcloud Page.


Fast Food Music Video

By | 2012




FFMV is an experimental platform for DIY music video production and distribution. We are trying to change the idea of what and how a music video is. Developing a concept called social cinema, we employ radically different techniques towards the creation of music videos involving audience participation, cutting edge technology, Absurdist spectacle, non linear story telling, collaborative process and the distribution power of online publishing.

Brooklyn Night Bazaar December 16th, 2011.

By | 2011, commercial

I constructed a live processing system using a wireless barbie camera and a wiimote nunchuck so that I could have a sweet video jam with Matthew Caron on December 16th, 2011. It was at this huge warehouse in Williamsburg called the Brooklyn Night Bazaar and it was presented by Brooklyn Vegan. Matt had the foresight to bring a VHS deck with him to record what we wound up doing that night, and also managed to get a clean audio recording off of the soundboard. HE combined a recording of our output along with audio from the soundboard to create this instant music video of the bands. Here are some of the videos.

Cameron Wisch Collaboration

By | 2009

I created a performance with drummer and friend Cameron Wisch involving acoustic drums, glowsticks, fog machine, live camera, projection, audience participation and audio reactive light processing. Cameron performs on an acoustic drum kit along with laptop
computer as Eric Drasin beams laptop projections onto the audience and
stage. A camera captures the movement of the audience and is analysed
by the laptop to form a ‘feedback loop’ of light, echoing and
enhancing the energy of the room.
