“In my decades of experience in the lighting industry, this is the most exciting product that I have ever seen. I am impressed with the creativity and knowledge of the team at Limbic Media and I am thrilled to be partnering with them” — Darren Vader, CEO, Lumyn Immersive Media
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.”

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.
Location: Vancouver, BC, Canada
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)
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 Festival. Festival 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
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.
Location: Toronto, ON, Canada
Burning Man Rainbow
An Aurora-powered rainbow was installed at Burning Man 2017’s centre camp with support from the Phoenix Rainbow Project. Integrate Aurora into festival installations to engage attendees.
Location: Black Rock City, NV, USA
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!”
