In 2013 we were invited to create a one off visual show for The Cinematic Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House. The live performance was part of Graphic festival and featured 40 members of the Sydney International Orchestra. The visual show had to sit within the stage design for the 4 day festival, and we worked with the local lighting crew to create a cohesive production.
The visuals needed to have an overarching theme which was flexible enough to follow the very dynamic and eclectic setlist and tie all the tracks together. We also wanted to create a set of visuals with enough space to allow people to imagine their own narratives. We settled on the theme of “Light” with each track exploring a different aspect of the subject.
