Biography of Soichi Matsumoto: 

Soichi began as a freelance video maker/editor after completing his MA in DMI (digital moving image) at London's Guildhall in 2001. Quadroptica was set up by Soichi and his colleagues as a one off VJ outfit in 2002.  The success of his first gig was so huge (much to do with his totally unique film take on VJing) it lead to bigger and bolder projects. A new found passion in live visuals has kept Quadroptica going ever since, performing countless shows at many of the biggest festivals and clubs across the globe including four years residency at the UK's infamous Glade Festival. In the last four years, Soichi has expanded from live visuals to video designing music videos, concert visuals, brand launches and fashion shows. In 2006 he founded Ever Changing Scenes with Carlo Rossi.

MITSUBISHI iCAR press launch from Quadroptica on Vimeo.
We were approached by Rouge to create a visual show for the press launch of the 
Mitsubishi Hybrid iCAR. Our brief was to show the iCAR in relationship to Japans 
urban and future-looking youth culture and to challenge the auto-marketplace to 
think outside of the cultural boundaries that often blind them to new ideas. 
Utilizing the iCAR's ad-campaign graphics and cinema/tv ads we were given free 
reign to deconstruct and animate their graphics and ads. Delving into Japan's 
passion for design we chose to juxtapose imagery of iCAR's hybrid technology and 
Japan's Y-generation and their breaking of tradition and reinvention of world fashions.

E:Cube Relaix and Chateaux from ECS on Vimeo.

ECS were commisioned by Evensus Events to create an 15m video art installation 

inside an inflatable white cube that moonlighted as a shell fish bar and concert space next to the 

Serpentine Gallery. The E:Cube opened from November 21st 2010 through to January 5th 2011 

and had over 5000 attendees. The installation explored the theme of winter. The  installation was 

sponsored by Relais Chateaux and the super car company E-Curie 25. We also created soft 

advertising ads (above) for the sponsors that would appear every 30 minutes.

Direction: Soichi Matsumoto / Carlo Rossi.

A Night of Exploration & The National History Museum from ECS on Vimeo.

Celebrating 100 years of exploration we were asked by the NHM to create a visual 
journey through man's exploration into the unchartered. The film covering the ocean,
highest mountains and space was performed at the anniversary party held at the NHM
with The Organic Jam. 
Direction: Soichi Matsumoto / Carlo Rossi
Editor: Carlo Rossi.

GM Style 07 Dubai from Quadroptica on Vimeo.
Vivacious Events approached us to put together a live visual show for GM Style 
event that would combine Dubai's embracing of its past and of its future. We were 
commissioned to edit and fuse the imagery from such ground-breaking films as 
Baraka, Powaaqatsi and Koyaanisqatsi, in order to convey their subconscious 
message; the world as one organism. We selectively mixed together imagery 
of Arabic culture and sustainable natural resources that are ever so presently 
becoming the future energys of the world. Showcasing GM's concept hybrid - 
the Chevrolet Volt, the event was held at The Madinet Jumeriah where Soichi
VJ'd the visuals to The Organic Jam

Direction: Soichi Matsumoto / Carlo Rossi

Teletext relaunch. from Quadroptica on Vimeo.

We were asked by Teletext to create an environmental space that showed
the new teletext to be as simple as water, always fluid and filling every 
space it inhabits while always being as clear as sky. The relaunch was held
at Sketch in Conduit St where they have 12 projectors that project onto all 
four walls to crate an overall feel of being immersed inside water. The visuals 
were mixed live by Soichi to set by The Organic Jam

With Pommery’s Brut Royal in full flow, an indulgent bar menu on offer and performances by The Organic Jam, a collaboration of London’s top DJs and live musicians, the ‘igloo style’ E:Cube will be the coolest place to eat, drink and play this Christmas.  Located in the park's Winter Wonderland, the E:Cube is an entirely white, innovative structure, designed by Evensus Creative Event Management to host a wide range of events throughout the year.
