Good Djs are a key element for the positive outcome of a party. Vjs represent the add on to the whole musical experience. We work around our customers, we research and develop around the commissioner's various requests whilst we suggest new ways of communication.
Visuals that aren't merely projections of sequential videos but are instead a synergistic mix of a perceptible show. We have expanded our comfort zone from the 2D representation into the 3D mapping concept. Videos that take stage on physical objects such as blinds, cubes and spheres working as a support to the 2D performance. Transforming the artificial object into an animated one that communicates with the music and its whole audience.Want to add a Visual Show to your next event?

Red Bull Revolutions In Sound 2014
Back in November VAMA Visuals teamed up with Anomalous Visuals and Red Bull Music Academy as they returned to the EDF Energy London Eye for an epic celebration of UK club culture with Revolutions In Sound.
All 30 of the Eye’s capsules were separately curated by a legendary club night who brought their original line-up of resident DJs and some superstar guests, including The End, The Haçienda and Bugged Out! through to Fabric, Blitz Club and Boiler Room. Streaming all capsules simultaneously, the event was ground breaking on many levels and showed that dance culture is more successful now than it has ever been.
At the base of the London Eye another impressive array of DJ’s delighted the 1000 strong ‘silent disco’ dancers, while live feeds from each pod and helicopters circling over the Thames were spliced together by VAMA & AV with our own archive of London club culture and graphic visual wonders.

Butterflies Origami Installation - Projection mapping
This installation sees the usage of the ancient origamivtechnique applied to an oversized butterfly structure. This re-adaptation of the paper folds has been so far the most effective as conveys the full potential of the 3D mapping methods. The inspiration of this piece travels many miles across the Atlantic Ocean into the Monarch sanctuaries of Mexico where this kind of butterfly has been migrating for million years. The sole natural spectacle of these creatures has generated the idea for the piece, which revolves around the absolution of the paper folded butterflies into digital shows of light.
Photon 1.0 - Event organized by VAMA Visuals
The Photon project revolves around the theme of visual arts and its continuous expansion as an increasingly recognized multifaceted discipline. Photon 1.0 showcased some of London’s best projection and performance based visual artists, expanding public awareness to the infinite number of possibilities that this medium has to offer.
The selection of our artists (Junk Beam, Prickimage, Apparati Effimeri, Anomalous Visuals...) was made in order to give a varied view of contemporary products and techniques available in multimedia performance.
Secret Garden Party 2013 - warming up
For this year’s Secret Garden Party, VAMA Visuals together with Anomalous Visuals teamed up with Ethnobling to curate a stage named the ‘Ethnobling-etarium’ in the Rejenr8 tent. A visual creatives dream, the tent is dome shaped and is designed to project 360 degree visuals as part of an immersive experience that has to be witnessed to be believed...
Last June over 1000 people passed through the doors of the recently renamed Lambeth in Brixton to witness a 12 hour musical and visual extravaganza hosted by Anomalous Visuals in association with VAMA Visuals, Ethnobling and The Secret Garden Party. The event was an incredible success, with many people declaring it to be the start of the great British Summer and a fitting warmup for the main festival itself.
Secret Garden Party 2013
Definitely one of UK’s best-known summer festivals for the past 5 years.
Started small but now rocking its last edition with more than 26.000 visitors and 15stages. VAMA Visuals joined the festival in one of the most amazing visual settings seen so far. An impressive 360 degree immersive dome, where we developed an intrepid visual show pushing the boundaries of experimentation and kaleidoscopic effects. After this experience we now want to permanently adopt a dome, simply amazing setting for a visual show.
VAMA Visuals is looking into an explosive 2014 full of dates and collaborations. We strive to keep all our pages up to date so that you can follow us around the London nightlife and arts events. WATCH THIS SPACE!
