ABOUT THE INSTALLATION
Transforming Marischal College into a giant interactive laser light synth show
BAFTA award winner Seb Lee-Delisle brings Laser Light Synths to Marischal College. A touch-activated light installation that will dazzle you with thousands of super bright LEDs. As you play the custom-made synths, powerful lasers project animated visuals that respond to the music and cover the entire college with shimmering dancing lights.
The synths have been designed to use a carefully selected musical scale so that they remain perfectly in harmony with each other. This makes them easy to play (there are no wrong notes) and yet expressive enough that you feel in control.
