Ongoing content creation for music artist Porter Robinson.

Most of my work focused around Porter Robinson’s sophomore LP, “Nurture”. Throughout its nearly year-long release, I worked alongside Porter and his team to create music videos, marketing content, and live visuals related to the album.

We first began by comissioning 3D visuals in the design style of Nurture. One of these visuals became the foundation of a lyric video for Nurture’s third single, “Look At The Sky”.

As the album neared its release, I animated marketing assets for the Nurture Deluxe Vinyl Box Set.

A team of artists including myself produced and edited the first iteration of “Nurture Live”. The show includes live music, MIDI instruments and vocals, as well as two large LED walls with synchronized visuals nicknamed the “laptop”.

Following the release of Nurture, and the debut of Nurture Live, Porter Robinson announced his Second Sky Festival would be returning to Oakland, CA.

The same team of artists including myself were called back to extend and improve the live show, and the first in-person Nurture Live performance happened at Second Sky Festival 2021.

Porter Robinson is currently touring Nurture Live worldwide at festivals and concert venues.
