Why use Scalable Vector Graphics (SVGs) for live visuals?

  • SVG is an open standard
  • The format is supported by most vector graphics drawing apps
  • Vector graphics are very light and flexible, quick to create, and easily animated
  • There is a long tradition of using simple geometric elements for visual music
  • “Less is more” approach, instead of / in addition to using more powerful tools
