Beginning on May 25th, the opera house was cast in 3D projections mapped to its universally recognizable facade and synced to an ethereal soundtrack produced in part by Eprom, along with UK producer Air Max ’97, and Canadian producer x/o. The display, which will run multiple times nightly through June 16th, is part of the Vivid Sydney Light Festival, which brings various luminous wonders to the Australian waterfront city.According to Billboard, the 15-minute audiovisual display, dubbed METAMATHEMAGICAL, was spearheaded by multi-discipline artist Jonathan Zawada, who also designed the cover art for Flume‘s award-winning 2016 album, Skin.Digitally mapped 3D projections have become increasingly popular in recent years, but the boundaries of the technology are still being pressed. With the unusual structure and shape of the Sydney Opera House as a canvas, the artists were able to take it to some truly incredible places. As Eprom notes, “The installation will play as part of Sydney’s Vivid festival, as versicolored 3D images transform the sails of the Opera House into something entirely otherworldly.”Strap in an watch the amazing video below via Eprom (skip to 13:30 for the start of the show)… You may have seen a light show projected on a building before, but you’ve definitely never seen anything quite like this.[H/T Billboard]last_img read more
