The beginning of the Sydney Vivid Light show is an excuse to see the city lit up with an array of lights, music and artistic flare.
Today, we spoke to the music contributors teacher Kerry Furlong and students Perry and Donny for the ‘Electric Forest’ from Sydney Ultimo TAFE.
Visitors to the Electric Forest will walk through a strange world of illuminated plant life: from bizarre hanging ‘fruits’ and deep rumbling storms to schools of fish and cunning optical illusions, highlighting the fertile imaginations of the Live Production Design Students.
Finally, an unusual psycho-acoustic offering from the music students provides multiple soundtracks to the activation, so that when the animation loop repeats, it does so to different music. Apart from ‘keeping it fresh’, the audience will experience first-hand how different music can sometimes can change the entire meaning of a visual narrative.
