Design stage visuals for HI-LO's debut show

Creators Selected On
December 23, 2015
Dutch producer Oliver Heldens invites filmmakers, animators, illustrators and graphic designers from around the world to create background visuals to be used in his first-ever live performance under his new alias HI-LO.

HI-LO's name, current visuals and music all emphasize contrast. (E.g. Really low basslines interspersed with high notes). Artists are encouraged to draw from the theme of "contrast" and submit a video (up to 10 minutes in length) of the visuals they plan on developing. You may include aspects of the HI-LO logo, but this should not have a predominance in your designs.

One Selected Artist will work with HI-LO's video jockey to bring their graphics to life and have them premiered at HI-LO's first show.
about hi-lo
With his mad filthy basslines and swinging techy beats HI-LO is going to blow a lot of minds very soon. His killer bass house jam “Crank It Up” has only recently seen the light of day, but is already being played by some heavyweights from different scenes like Diplo, Green Velvet, Flux Pavilion, Tiësto, Umek, Oliver Heldens, Kaskade and Knife Party to name a few. It seems the crowds are ready for some serious bassline madness, even though most of them might not be aware of this themselves... HI-LO is here to show them how it’s done, so prepare yourself to dance like a fool and rage like a maniac... the bass invasion is coming.
