Creating Visual & Sonic Experiences by Software Engineering Apps.
– Immersive Audiovisual Performances to Illustrate Powerful Life Changing Stories with Projected Visuals + LED’s. Creative Coding using sensors to make them interactive to my movements, the sound of the audience and the Music in real-time. Dance choreographed moves to tell a story in sync with the projected animations / music.
– Magical Worlds of Spiritual / Sensory enchanting journeys: Interactive Environments and Installations.
Using architecture + building Sacred Geometry based structures to create Interactive Immersive Environments.
“The music is as important as the visuals.
As a musician and a Creative Coder, I do not see a separation between ‘disciplines’ but an opportunity to unite them.”
Headquarters: Los Angeles

The Immersive Audiovisual Performances and Interactive Environments open a new dimension in the psyche, where through the stimulation of their senses, the audience enters a new reality of wonder.
Writing software to create Innovative Visual Graphics, Animations, and Interactions to Perform my Music, do Projections on and within Architectural Spaces as well as built Structures, and creating living worlds where interactive walls, sounds, and lights take you to a new planet.
“My work is inspired by my heart. The heart connects us to our spirit. So do our intuition, gut feeling and emotions. Our actions play a vital role in the fate of humanity and the environment. I realize that I have an impact on the planet, humanity, and thus the cosmos. I chose to purposely not do projects for certain companies and institutions whose motives are polluting the atmosphere, torturing animals and selling the most unnatural lab fabricated disease generating chemical-based products.
As a human living in the West, I am interwoven in many of the things that from my observation, are destroying us as human beings, as well as animals and the ecosystem of the planet as a whole. The industrial revolution came with a heavy price of mass pollution and extreme toxicity. The dichotomy is that I love technology. I live to find a balance in my own life. What role do you play in humanity’s history ? The moment you realize that the power is within you and not external, you start taking actions towards the reason why you are alive here on earth. I work to bring humanity together because we are all connected… as one.”
What is your purpose here on earth in this incarnation ?
As humans, how do we live in harmony with our environment, while advancing technologically ?
How do we live in a biodegradable & conscious way ?
“In the mid-eighties, I lived in the heart of Hip Hop Kulture, and it hit me in the heart when he was very young. The sound of Hip Hop Music resonated with my soul more than anything else on Earth at that time.
I started Deejaying Hip Hop records at 11 years old living in Union Square West, Manhattan.
I did Graffiti in the Paris subways at 13 years old while also break dancing. This is when I started writing Hip Hop songs daily to artistically express my frustrations with the limitations of society and an educational system which turned people into sheep unknowingly lead by fear instead of love.”
“We are not separate. We are all unique and biodiverse while being interconnected to all of life.”

Creating art to enhance the Human Experience. The focus is to thrive beyond. WILLPOWER STUDIOS uses Technology to create innovative mind blowing Cutting Edge Art to touch people through a captivating interaction, bringing all walks of life together.
“What inspires me to create projects that unify different types of beings was seeing so many closing themselves off to others out of fear and conditioning. There is so much classism, racism, sexism, egoism, and other isms, that it is time for us to realize… we are one.
“The work is made via Creative Coding… Software Engineering to create Interactive Audiovisual Immersive Experiences.”
Creative Coding is the use of Code or Programming in a Creative way, which differs from its typical use.
The image above this text shows what coding a Graphic User Interface in openFrameworks (oF) via a library named DatGui looks like.
oF is an open source C++ platform.
WILLPOWER LIFEFORCE focuses on using Open Source frameworks to create his Art. Open Source is free and allows people from all over the world to share information for free without the limiting affects of Patents & Copyrights, which tend to slow down growth, learning and sharing for the majority.
