Observers of last year’s CWA ceremony will remember 2007 Best Resident VJ nominee Marina Rao, aka Psyberpixie, for her “micro” cuts and technospiritual montages of ancient cultures, cyberpunk and psychedelia. But after four years in the game, Psyberpixie hasn’t been sitting still: She’s moved operations from Ft. Lauderdale to Miami, where the Opium Group’s multi-nominated Set has given her a balcony from which to command her audience. And since taking on new management, she’s also brought her imitable style to Mexico City, Los Angeles, and any other venue searching to have its consciousness and visual decor properly expanded. -JHRead More
Psyberpixie, Revolution Ft. Lauderdale
Looking like she stepped out of a fast-action anime, Marina Rao, aka Psyberpixie, is an emerging VJ whose on-the-fly blends splash across Revolution’s many plasmas and single centerstage big screen. Her show combines a montage of fast “micro” cuts with lots of frames, depicting a techno-organic blend of visuals pulled from multiple video sources, graphics and 3D animation. The goal? “To make a visual symphony of thought-provoking pixels.” Fast on the rise in the South Florida scene, Psyberpixie has provided visuals for Carl Cox, Crystal Method and Josh Wink, as well as corporate events for MTV and Reebok. –DS

If you’re a VJ, looking for ready made material, then these two downloadable ‘content packs’ might be just the thang. In contrast to some of Arkaos’ content packs, which contain very raw footage, South Florida based VJ, Psyberpixie’s packs are the finished article, consisting of ready mixed, multi layered, effected clips.
The first of the two, ‘Psyberpixie by Psyberpixie’, open with proof that Psyberpixie gives good head…as brightly posterised Wharholesque heads on a trio of TV screens jump back and forth in the opposite direction to the stone carved Javanese temple heads above them…a theme that is reprised in the following clip, albeit with a different colour scheme.
Next is a clip of a street in a China town, with added shake…at least I think i...Read More

The fascinating thing about the VJ market is that it is still completely under. yes, you have some name guys out there, like Vello Virkhaus of V Squared Labs, but for the most part, you’ve never even heard of or, better yet, experienced the majority of talented artists out there. Check out Benton Bainbridge, Feedbuck Galore, Grant Davis or Psyberpixie to name a few.
With Edirol, Pioneer, Numar, Korg and other large manufacturers making new products for VJs, its only goign to be a matter of time before this market explodes and you have big-time VJs demanding the same fees as top-ten DJs!
Are you ready?

Stay tuned for an interview with this artist who paints with digital media on screens soon here on Raves.com!

An internet radio station takes the sounds of South Beach global
by Joanie Cox
A DJ positions himself between two turntables, his body jerking back and forth in time to the breakbeats rumbling from the speakers set up in one corner of the room. The msic is so loud that the floor is shaking, but this doesn’t deter a petite you woman with butterfly wings attached to her back from running in to the room and reaching for a Red Bull.
“Can you belive the energy in this place?” Vanessa Picart, 33, asks as she puts her drink on the ground to adjust her wings and bust into an impromptu dance. “I’ve got these on because I’m ready to fly tonight.”
Marina Rao, aka VJ Psyberpixie joined The Womb in October and has become its official resident VJ...Read More
