Vigilante is currently on tour with his show "Revolution Is Now" for the first time across countries like USA, Russia and Poland. The show is an explosion of passion and adrenaline on the stage, backed up by powerful visuals mixed live on stage with ArKaos GrandVJ.
Musician / producer Ivan Muñoz (aka Vigilante) is a Chilean Industrial / Metal artist. With his mix of electronic and metal, he has been able to conquer audiences of Chile, South America and the world.
In 2006 and 2010, Vigilante achieved being the only Chilean musician to participate in one of the world's biggest festivals, known as Wave Gotik Treffen, held in Germany. In 2008, Vigilante was the supporting band for Nine Inch Nails in Chile. His work has had him collaborating and sharing the stage with some of the most influential bands in the Industrial music scene.
“ArKaos software have always been a great solution for our live shows. On stage we don't use a live drummer so visuals are like the 4th member in our line up, it has always been a very important aspect of our show.”, explains Ivan, which is supported live for this tour by Christopher Calise (Guitar/Keyboards) and Mike Pimentel (Guitar/Keyboards) in USA and Raphaël Verbiese (Keyboards) and Olivier Lecanu (Guitar) in Europe.
“When touring, we need a solution that is extremely stable, versatile but also easy to transport, so GrandVJ was perfect for us: we just had to take a Novation USB MIDI controller and a Vaio Notebook and we were all set! With VGA and RCA outputs we could easily connect to most LCD screns or projectors in each venue, and during the show, our Keyboardist simply triggers the sequences and the visuals for each song in real time.”
During this tour, Vigilante will perform songs from previous albums like "The Heroes code" or "War of Ideas" but will be mainly focused on presenting themes from the latest album "The New Resistance".
“We were already using ArKaos VJ in the past and we now have naturally switched to GrandVJ. We've been amazed by the number of options and parameters that can be setup in GrandVJ to create amazing effects, it really allows us to innovate, to get creative and achieve better results than what was initially expected. For the next tour we are working on incorporating a wireless camera in a fake gun to point to our audience and include them in the live visuals.”
