The critically acclaimed A/V single Timber won the MCM Atlas [French national TV] Award for Best Video Editing (1998). It is the third part of the Natural Rhythms Trilogy, Stuart Warren-Hill's first experiment in video sampling, the first piece being Frog Jam and the second being Natural Rhythm. Although Stuart was the main architect of this trilogy, it was created with the support of Coldcut and Greenpeace.

Here are just a few examples of Hexstatic's ground-breaking audio-visual work.

Seminal UK VJ outfit Hexstatic are Stuart Warren-Hill and Robin Brunson. They are pioneering AV artists who work with video samples, mixing both recorded and computer generated visuals and sound to create synchronised AV tracks.

Much of Hexstatic’s AV work involves integrated visual experiences, and both of their main album releases have been CD and DVD combinations; Master-View [2005] includes 3D "anaglyph" versions of some of their music videos and comes packaged with 3D glasses. Hexstatic has also been instrumental in developing VJ equipment, including the Pioneer DVJ-X1 professional DVD turntable.

Since their art crosses a lot of boundaries Hexstatic have performed at art galleries and cinemas as well as festivals and smaller clubs. After viewing Timber, David Byrne asked Hexstatic to do the visuals for his performance at the 1998 Lisbon Expo. Since then they performed the first ever live AV gig at the Guggenheim in Bilbao as well as at the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. In September 2005, they projected video on a huge water screen over the River Thames in London as part of the Thames Festival. They also have performed at the huge Electraglide raves in Japan for over 10,000 people.

Heads up: the shoutbox will be retiring soon. It’s tired of working, and can’t wait to relax. You can still send a message to the channel owner, though!
