Best VJ — Individual - 2012
VJ Dizy Pixl
VJ Dizy Pixl (aka Alie Lane) may be a VJ based in Denver, but the excellence of her craft landed her a gig doing visuals for cEvin Key of Skinny Puppy on his tours, as well as for group tours with Download, Otto Von Schirach and Dead Voices on Air. At home, Lane is an in-demand VJ for various shows, mostly at events hosted by the Backwards Records collective and avant-garde musicians including Orbit Service. She was originally inspired by experimental filmmakers like Alejandro Jodorowsky and Stan Brakhage, whose own unforgettable imagery clearly informs her own approach. Her early interest in the visual presentation of bands like Meat Beat Manifesto and Skinny Puppy also clearly taught her a thing or two about fusing the visual with the musical, which you can see from her intuitive and interactive co-performances.
