I started VJing under the moniker Zentist in 1999 when I found myself with some other guys together in a soon-to-be club cellar room with an idea floating around of having something and more than just the back then obligatory scanners and strobes.
A short time after we started hauling desktop computers (VJamm!), monitors and hardware mixers into that cellar and the "some guys" become good friends whith whom I eventually founded the VJ Collective Impulskontrolle. And it went off from there - we must been doing something right because it didn't take long for us to be noticed outside of that club to the point where we regularily made our appearences in the end-of-year reader polls of De:bug (Germany's most renowned magazine for, I quote, "Electronic lifestyle")
As a pure VJ, I am not very active these days any more. I still do love visuals but I have somewhat grown out of spending nights in clubs - been doing this for years. I do still love visuals, though, but these days I am more into programming visuals instruments, going realtime all the way. However...
I'm more than happy to have some of that ouput - maybe - find its way into the work of my successors :)
for now, something to look at:
