Live Electronic Visuals

Heaven 17/B.E.F.: Electronica at the Roundhouse

British Electronic Foundation 30 year celebration, live at the Roundhouse in London. Live visuals and merchandising design for a 2 night show. Having previously created a number of live visuals for Heaven 17's 30th anniversary tour of the album Penthouse & Pavement, I was then asked to create the live visuals for this weekend.

A number of visuals were created as well as simplified signature graphics for each guest vocalist (including Green Gartside (Scritti Politti), Shingai Shoniwa (Noisettes), Boy George, Midge Ure, Glenn Gregory, Sandie Shaw and Kim Wilde).

The screens used are very low resolution LED strips, which up close are just vertical glass tubes with evenly spaced LED lights, this means that anything with fine detail could be lost, however, proved very effective with graphic images, viewed from the audience's p.o.v.
