Leo Mayberry has been composing, coordinating and performing live video for over a decade. Projects have varied from improvisational explorations with Steve Fisk and Greg Gilmore to complicated theater performance with the Degenerate Art Ensemble. Custom applications in Max/MSP/Jitter, and an eclectic catalog of material to draw from allow the flexibility necessary to thrive in environments from gothic ambience to breakcore meltdown. Use of mirrors, motors, and non-standard screen compositions are all ways he’s working to shatter the screen and release the image.
Since 2000 he’s performed in Seattle’s Major venues: Showbox, Chop Suey, NAF Studios, The Sunset Tavern, The Hi Dive, CHAC, Lower Level, the FUNC, El Corazon, Tost, Consolidated Works, The Hall, The Columbia City Theater, The Tractor Tavern, The Premiere, Nectar, EMP Skychurch, Re-Bar, EyeSpy, Crocodile Cafe, The Fenix Underground, The Bohemian and Neumos.
Leo acted as the Decibel Festival Visual Coordinator for the 2007 and 2008 editions.
