Jackie Passmore is a talented VJ touring with Ladytron (and, in spring 2006, Stereolab). There are some talented genes in this family: her brother was the lead programmer of loop software Acid. Thanks to sponsorship from Korg, she accompanies her Apple laptop with a Korg video mixer and microKONTROL keyboard. The heart of the setup is the superb Vidvox GRID2 software; Vidvox has a great interview with Jackie. (Watch for our own profile here soon.)

Created Digital Music is starting a whole series on VJ's in art & music (and apparently will be starting a blog on the same topic, soon). It's an interesting series and since female VJ's hardly ever get blog-play, I thought I'd use this post to alert you to the conversation at CDM...
