I'm graphic designer and sometimes also work with after effect. I also make music and would like to create my own motion graphics for live performance or even video clips.

A lot of live performances like this are driven by what's called "VJ software" -- packages like Arkaos, MODUL8, Resolume, and others.

You could use an app like After Effects to create some of the source material, and then use the VJ app to mix multiple sources live during the performance.
