Welcome to Fall. As the days get darker, things at Limbic Media are lighting up.
Aurora, our sound reactive lighting system, is getting major attention across North America with holiday installations planned in cities from coast to coast.
Last week we unveiled our latest project the Innovation Tree, a testament to Victoria’s high-tech innovative spirit. The Innovation Tree was made possible through a collaboration between the DVBA, the City of Victoria, and VIATEC.
The Innovation Tree is located at the bottom of Government Street near the Empress Hotel. The Innovation Tree is powered by Limbic Media’s sound reactive Aurora lighting system. The Aurora system controls 1000 LED lights in the tree and responds to the sounds of the City to create intricate and beautiful patterns of light.
At the launch the Innovation Tree came alive to the music of the The Jonnie 5 brass band and even Mayor Lisa Helps was moved to dance in the street alongside the other revelers!
UPDATE: Innovation Tree now programmed with Halloween colours 🙂
Sound Reactive Lighting Algorithm Development
On another note, the amazing engineers and lighting designers at Limbic Media have been developing the audio analysis algorithms that drive the Aurora product. Here is a video demonstrating its power using our large globe-style fixtures.
The lights in this video are 100% controlled by the music in real-time no designer needed.
High Density 3D Volumetric LED Display
Recently we have been experimenting with an amazing new 3D LED display.
For the Integrate Art Festival we built an installation using more than over 1000 individually controllable 360 degree LEDs, mapped them into a 3D geometry, and used Aurora to analyze and visualize the incoming audio stream live from a DJ (Arya from EMP Productions).
The result is mind blowing…and this is just the beginning 🙂
