We worked with artist Sam Conran to design a concept and build a stage lighting system for the band LOYAL. Five letters are covered in coloured lights that are animated with the music. Each letter splits into two and fits into flight cases, making set up and pack down quick and easy for each show.
Each letter has a few hundred addressable LEDs, with an on board controller generating lighting effects based on parameters sent from a control computer.
We worked with the band and record label to develop a concept, design the piece in detail and then produce it. This included mechanical design and electronic design plus a lot of wiring to connect over 2000 LEDs together. Once the physical build was finished, the firmware was coded to allow the effects to work seamlessly.
