The era of CDs is nearly over and that is precisely why, live concerts and performances are becoming increasingly important for music artists. With this increase in the demand and popularity of live performances, they have greatly evolved, turning into a huge show of light, music and entertainment from mere singing.
A lot of artists have tried to introduced innovative light shows during their live performance. This is because normally, when people sign up for a concert, they expect much more than mere singing – they look to be entertained. And that is precisely why the technique to produce light shows for concerts have improved significantly over time.
Creating a 3-D sound-visualization show:
For instance, a design studio ‘Futura Epsis 1′ has now produced stunning 3-D light shows to go with Danish electronic artist Red Baron’s new album called Floating. The interesting thing about this 3-D light show is that it is entirely created using an iPad!
According to the Head of Development at Futura Epsis 1, Andreas Rothbaug, “We came up with the idea of a realtime 3-D sound-visualization as an installation for concerts and live-events as well as interactive installation for clubs.’ The best thing about these visualizations are that they are truly real-time, partially affected by the sounds of the music. The user can tweak the colors of the lights, their rotations and similar other tweaks.
Rothbaug further says, “The control protocol of the visuals is OSC (like the network version of MIDI), creating the option of controlling the visuals with a variety of controllers. For example directly out of Ableton Live, MIDI controllers in general.”
The best thing about this extra-ordinary show of light and music is that you can create your very own show simply by downloading the app. You can download the app right away from App Store here.
