So, uh, we can't stop staring at gorgeous light sculpture and projection mapping videos. It's like getting your fortune told and finding out you're gonna get magic powers. Our industry is already pretty fun, but now that this kind of stuff is moving from "experimental" to "mainstream", A/V and production design is about to go spare. Join us while we ogle the future and applaud the architects that are making it happen:
Decibel did a little review on the 2014 Country Music Awards a few months ago, drawing attention to the LED video wall behind Dierks Bentley during his performance of "Drunk on a Plane". We said it and we meant it: get ready to see a lot more LED-everything, and particularly LED wall backdrops, in 2015 and beyond. We dug up some videos showing some interesting, experimental or just plain pretty approaches to LED walls - get ready to get inspired.
Heard of this trend? Silent Storm, a dedicated provider of silent disco sound equipment, describes the format as "a unique way of experiencing live music – whether it be a DJ or even a live band. Guests wear wireless headphones and a silent atmosphere instantly transforms in to a high energy musical performance."
If you're familiar with some of our audio-visual work, you'll know Decibel has done some interesting projects in the past on projection / facade mapping, and we frequently draw inspiration from cross-disciplinary visual artists. These five videos are stunning examples of using light and video to create brilliant and artistic spaces. May they inspire you in the creation of a unique visual environment at your next event.
At its most basic, pattern projection and mapping is a stage lighting design technique in which a decorative pattern is washed over a large surface area to create a visual effect. In the past few years, stage lighting technology has developed so drastically that's its now capable of lifting cartoon characters out from behind screens and beaming them into real-life.
Not all DJs are created equal, and there are considerations above and beyond which version of the Macarena is gonna get dropped. Here are a few tips to help you hone in on the perfect DJ for your event.
