Creator’s Project: London Square Turned Into Kaleidoscopic Audiovisual Light Show
Flat Iron Square in south London was transformed into an immersive light show with deadmau5 providing accompanying audio.
On Wednesday night Flat Iron Square in south London was transformed into an immersive light show with deadmau5 providing accompanying audio. Marcus Lyall, from ML Studio who do tour visuals for the Chemical Brothers, was the creative director behind the project which he described as “like putting on a musical in the street”.
The show took the live music experience and mapped it onto the surfaces and textures that make up a typical street. Every conceivable surface was utilised from windows, trees, street lights, glowing wheelie bins, parked cars and mopeds, even fruit sat outside on a stall. It all became a visual component lighting up in time with the beats. Added to this visual synthesizer was some theatrics, like forklift trucks carrying mirror balls and a mock resident appearing in the window in their dressing gown, shaking their fist at the partygoers and pretending to call the council about the noise.
