Interactive Chandelier

The Aurora-powered interactive Chandelier is a permanent fixture in the lobby of VIATEC (Victoria Innovation, Advanced Technology and Entrepreneurship Council). VIATEC is the hub of Victoria’s $6 Billion high-tech industry, it serves many roles including, providing co-working space, running accelerator programs and mentoring for start-ups, and hosting industry workshops and courses. VIATEC were looking for an activation that would create a memorable experience for their many visitors and residents including a variety of tech industry investors and executives.

“Anybody can go online and order a color changing light bulb that connects to an app, but what about 500 of them suspended together that are sound responsive, interactive, frequency driven, percussive. That’s not something you get on Amazon, you need to work with real artists and real innovators to do that. We are really excited about what that says to the people we work with and what is provides them” – Dan Gunn, CEO Viatec

Interactive Public Art Wall

Limbic Media was hired by Belford Properties to realize the first of three Aurora-powered, high-impact interactive art installations near British Columbia’s largest shopping centre, Metropolis at Metrotown. The Interactive Public Art Wall mapped LEDs over a graphic background to simulate rainfall. When viewers make donations to a coin box for a local organization, they are rewarded with a light show—literally “making it rain.”

“With the addition of these beautifully installed LED lights around the drawings on the wall, we are able to raise public awareness not only in the daytime but also attract lots of attention at night. Our Art Wall has soon become a popular sight visiting point in the area which gives us chances to interact with the public. The lights are one of the key elements in this charity fundraising event.”

Interactive & Immersive Tunnel

The Immersive & Interactive Tunnel @ THEMUSEUM gave guests an unparalleled, deeply emotive experience. Driven by the Aurora System, children (and some lucky adults) were given the magical powers to create a lighting show in real-time by playing the piano. Using the Aurora app, it was easy for THEMUSEUM to setup the display themselves, dialing in colors, effects, and specific parameters that govern how the music effects the lights. Furthermore, when there is no piano playing, music can be streamed to the tunnel to bring it to life.

Location: Kitchener, ON, Canada

Creative Retail Facade Lighting

Western Canada’s largest Canadian Tire store harnessed the power of the Aurora system to design and build a high-impact, low-cost, facade lighting experience to attract more attention to the store. The store owner can easily modify the lighting design and effects using the Aurora mobile app. Aurora’s interactivity features can also be used for their special events.

” We were looking for a high-impact display to grab attention from pedestrian and car traffic in front of our store location. The Aurora interactive lighting display gave us the attention we wanted in a big way. App control makes it easy for us to design and customize the colors and lighting effects, keeping the installation fresh and engaging. Feedback has been very positive. The installation provided the “shopper-tainment” value we were looking for!”

TED 2018 – The Age Of Amazement

TEDGlobal needed to amaze their high-profile guests at the TED2018: Age of Amazement Conference. Two Aurora-powered, sound-responsive canopies were installed at the Vancouver Convention Centre alongside traditional scenic lighting to create a large-scale, immersive effect.

“We worked with Limbic Media to install an Aurora lights activation at the opening night of TED2018. It was important to bring innovative and cutting-edge ideas to this crowd, and Limbic Media helped us to do this.

The Aurora lights were a huge hit, wow-ing this VIP crowd as they changed colour in time with the music, and added an additional layer of immersion as they rapidly change colour coinciding with our fireworks display. As an added bonus, we love working with the Limbic team – their can-do attitude, amazingly creative ideas, and high customer service levels never disappoint.”

Singing Tree

Interactive art installations benefit cities—they help foster a sense of community placemaking and increase foot traffic to areas of a downtown core to improve public safety and local business. Singing Trees invite the public to interact with a lighting scheme in real-time by singing, clapping, or yelling, creating an unforgettable and magical experience for participants.

The Aurora-powered Singing Tree has been deployed in a number of cities across the USA and Canada including New York, Seattle, Dallas, Los Angeles, Orlando, Victoria, and Vancouver.

“Limbic Media turned a cherry tree into a Christmas Tree with hundreds of light bulbs that change colour and intensity depending on how high or low you sing. It’s the most fanciful addition to Centennial Square this year.”   

—Ken Kelly, General Manager, Downtown Victoria Business Association

Locations: Across North America (including New York, Seattle, Dallas, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Victoria)

Piano Chandelier

Aurora-powered, 3D Chandeliers add a sophisticated and modern ‘WOW’ factor to any space. This specific design was commissioned for Chris Donison, renowned composer and director of Music By The Sea Festival. Shaped to a grand piano, the 3D lighting array responds intelligently to the frequency and rhythm of a piano performance. The piano chandelier’s inaugural performance was at the Victoria International Marina.

“Aurora! I love her, she lights up when i enter the room”  – Chris Donison

Globes Garden

A world-renowned botanical garden wanted to bring in a cutting-edge interactive art installation to wow their guests during an annual winter light-up event. Aurora performed a real-time, 2D-mapped light show with the garden’s sound system music lined-in. No technical expertise or custom programming was required.

Location: Victoria, BC, Canada

Large-Scale LED Towers

Limbic Media worked with Hfour Productions and Heineken to bring two large scale, Aurora-powered LED towers to the Escapade Music FestivalFestival attendees were invited to sing into a microphone and interact with the installation. The towers created a popular focal point over the course of the festival.

Location: Ottawa, ON, Canada

Show Me

Limbic Media developed Show Me, a state-of-the-art Voice Recognition technology that recognizes spoken phrases to help participants navigate media collections. Show Me can be easily integrated with Aurora to incorporate sound-to-light technology—say snow to trigger the movement, colour, and effects of a snowstorm for a winter-themed installation, for example. Show Me is a fun and magical way to interact with images and video, and can easily be set up to work with any word-image/video pairings.

Distant Grand LED Wall

Distant Grand, a two-piece live electro-soul band, wanted an intelligent and unique lighting solution to amp up their live performances. Limbic Media helped them design and build an Aurora-powered LED wall that responded in real-time to their music.

“Going from concept to design to final build was a total breeze using the Aurora system. Its real-time capabilities allow us to spend less time thinking about the lighting and more time making music!”
