This City is an audio-visual piece performed as musical alter-ego Mark Eats. It explores what happens when a soundtrack controls the world as much as the world influences its soundtrack. All effects are in‑camera and controlled live. Both visuals and music were created in parallel, the imagery forming part of the composition process. Custom software was built using openFrameworks that operates much like a game engine. This is influenced by MIDI data from the hardware synths and controllers.
