Ron Arad’s Curtain Call
– In August 2011 Internationally renowned artist, architect and designer, Ron Arad invited his favourite musicians and friends to create unique works for Curtain Call, his 360° interactive installation made of 5,600 silicon rods, suspended from a 18 metre diameter ring – a canvas for films, live performance and audience interaction.
Alongside creating our critically acclaimed artwork Waking Dream, we worked closely with Ron Arad, the Roundhouse and technical partners Blitz Communications to guide other artists through the process of producing work for this cutting edge system.
‘There’s a video collective called SDNA without whom this project would be on its knees still. SDNA have assisted and advised half the artists on the rostra. SDNA have been working alongside Javier Mariscal, Christian Marclay, Steven Isserlis, and Hussein Chalayan, to name but a few. Their expertise in everything from camerawork to this kind of unique post production has made the process a thousand times easier.’ – Associate Producer Tim Wilson
We had the great pleasure of visually accompanying internationally acclaimed cellist Steven Isserlis in concert, designing 360° surreal landscapes that complimented the music’s mood, tempo and narrative of Bach’s Solo Suite No 3, Britten’s Solo Suite No 3 and Carl Vine’s Inner World.
We also designed the visual backdrop for the London Contemporary Orchestra‘s concert, mixing images of giant insects with animated graphics to accompany a 20th-century repertoire for strings, interspersed with a selection of Thomas Tallis’ choral masterpieces.
