Bio VJ NEEF (Richard Neef)
After finishing the Art academy in 1997 (AKI Enschede) Richard Neef started working on video installations and live video experiments with poetry and dance.
After a long time of discovering the technical and poetic qualities of the medium video and some performances which showed these, he decided to use this knowledge to become a vj and create a very personal style of mixing. When he entered the Dutch/Belgian "Visual Sensations" vj contest this style was described by the jury as "It is music that you see". With raw and subtle images and the use of video-feedback and a lot of analog machines to mix and transform these, VJ NEEF won the Visual Sensations 2006/2007 final in Amsterdam.
After and before that VJ Neef performed at Transmediale Berlin. Robodock Amsterdam, Impakt festival Utrecht, Club11 Amsterdam and has worked in projects with or for: Tomato, De mislukte zigeuner, Playlab, The scandals, The Hans Werner Henze festival, Merlijn twaalfhoven and more.
VJ Neef is located in Amsterdam and working on building a Linux based computer program to create interesting patterns for live video montage and projection.
