The game jockey is a practice between video games and disk-jockey. It is a live performance with a crowd playing a mix of game samples performed by a jockey.
I study this new form of video game live performance with my research-creation. At the beginning, i was interesting in outdoor games, new electronic devices and a live performance of game creation. In my phd thesis (2016), i experiment theses ideas.
Today, i’m exploring game jockey with differents sub-themes :
- Technological devices for live performance video games
- Video games samples mixing problem
- Aesthetics and artistics practice with game jockey
I’m doing most of the artistics shows in France :
- « Polarizon », Sceaux, 2018
- « Alineaire x Chienpo », Lyon, 2018
- « Multiprise », Paris, 2019
- « Sortie de Cours », Cergy, 2019
You can contact me if you want a game jockey performance in your city.
I also published on the game jockey subject :
