To have this whole show feel as one continuous flow, we came up with a detailed run of show. This plan scheduled all tracks and visuals elements in such a way that all computer controlled elements could be automated. For every automation there was also the option to do a manual override, to leave room for improvisation by 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 generated gradient . This gradient used an adjustable randomiser to animate begin and end 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 a huge light box then video projection.
Kinetic and lighting control was done creating multiple art-net timelines that synced together the movements of the installation and the lighting.
For lighting fixtures we used dedicated film lamps. These allowed us to create a very cinematic intimate color mood.
