Bucharest Sings

The New Year’s Eve Concert is already a tradition and also a challenge for our team at 360 Revolution. The concert is one of the largest events every year, and it takes place in Bucharest`s largest square, Constitutiei, right in front of the second largest building in the world, The Palace of Parliament, where more than 50,000 people gather.

Our challenge for this year was to make the entire city sing on stage and also in the public. We had to design a special layout so everybody could sing together with the live artists on stage. For this we used eight large LED screens with various video formats and contents, just like a puzzle, visible in every corner of the square, with the lyrics shown on the top of the stage.

In order to synchronize the video content, we used an Apple Mac Pro with six DVI-out with Modul8 software. To control the live signal from ob-van, we used Analog Way Diventix II and one Edirol V440HD. All of these were controlled and synchronized through an Apple iPad 2, a MacBook Pro, and S1 MIDI Trigger software by creating a MIDI-over-IP network. The New Year’s party atmosphere was completed by the traditional fireworks and a special laser show design.
