Matt Pyke is a British artist and designer who creates astonishing computer generated video projections which are as impressive sonically as they are visually. He is also founder of the Universal Everything collective who are responsible for works such as the video backdrop to Coldplay’s Glastonbury set and the psychedelic backdrop to Primal Scream’s recent tour of Screamadelica.
There are a lot of videos and images on his website but the following video from his recent show in Paris neatly captures him at his best.
