Um... what is VJing?

VJing is literally mixing up visuals on the fly in real-time, reacting to the music and translating it into colour, motion, form. Synarcade throws in all sorts of images into the mix and also uses live camera feedback so that the audience see an extraordianry live audio-visual experience of the band or performer .
