HEXPIXELS the “C++ Punks” is a unit for realtime visual performance by Satoru Higa, an artist/programmer renowned for his contribution to openFrameworks community (core addon (ninja) developer), and sound artist/vj/programmer Kezzardrix whose works range from his own interactive installation to live visuals VJ for artists like SJQ++. Based on their diverse backgrounds of interactive programming, they probe & experiment the creativity of realtime rendering with shaders, physical models, game engines, and above all with their own repositories.
Most recently, the duo has performed at the Meme City: Hacking Realities, Media Art Festival @Hangzhou, China on December 24th, 2015. Their performance system comprised of a Blackmagic Switcher (ATEMTelevisionStudio) which controls Max/MSP and lets 3 PCs output auto-switch to Audio Reactive with a special addition of RICOH THETA S which is used as a realtime video feed via MaxMSP and openFrameworks.
