As we hurtle ever-faster to SuperByte 2015, J3WEL caught up with VJ Enterr ahead of his visuals performance at this year’s festival.
Tell us a bit about yourself, where are you from and how long have you been performing visual arts for?
I was born in the north of Spain and been living in Barcelona lately. I’ve been doing visuals and performing with Raquel Meyers and Goto80 (2006-2007) and later with Meneo (2007-2015).
I also did other shows and did visuals for DJs but yeah I guess I’m more known for these two collaborations…
As far as I remember my first show was along Goto80 in Elektro Circus Festival 2006 near Avignon in France, and my last upcoming show it’s this Sonar by Night Barcelona the saturday at 4:00 in the morning on the 20th of June haha.
How do you make your visuals, what software/hardware do you use to make your signature visuals and why?
I use whatever, I mean I get footage from different sources even games and software and hacking techniques and then join all together in my VJ homemade app on Adobe Flash. I’m not really into hardware… I use a lot of emulators and software and I do pixelated images.
Who are your main influences (if any) and what/who sparked your passion for creating visuals?
Well, I guess my deep influences are painters since I started studying painting at fine arts school, anyway I like hundreds of visual artists from the past and now… from Goya and Buñuel to Jodi and Eboy.
How are you feeling about performing at SuperByte this year?
I’m very excited to be in Manchester for my first time and meet a bunch of old friends, make new ones, rock the place and drink gin and tonics.
