To have the whole show feel as one continuous flow, we came up with a detailed show plan. This show plan scheduled all tracks and visuals elements in such a way that all computer controlled elements could be automated. In every automation was the possibility to do a manual override to leave room for improvisation for the musicians.
The center stage was controlled with a standard lighting system. The projection stage and installation staged were controlled by two synchronised mediaservers which handled the projection playback, audio playback, kinetic control and lighting control.
The projection playback incorporated a scripted gradient generated. This gradient used an adjustable randomiser to animate begin and eind points. Running this gradient at 60 frames per second (the maximum refresh rate of the projector used) resulted in a fluid look & feel that resembled more like a light box than a video projection.
Kinectic and lightning control was done by creating multiple art-net timelines that synced together the movements of the installation and the lightning.
As lightning fixtures, we used special film lights. These lights allowed us to create a more intimate mood than standard LED disco lights.
