HORIZONS, presented a “visual journey” through a live video mixing performance in collaboration with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, July 30, 2014. The large-scale architectural projection upon the Wisconsin State Capitol Building concluded the WCO’s final summer concert for a 35,000 audience. Roney mixed live animations with the chamber orchestra and guests.
Roney looks to embrace great public gathering spaces where local place meets global interest – virtual and physical worlds combine. HORIZONS, presents a spectacular array of animated vignettes activating a performative, time-based spatial experience to surpass architecture’s static structure; creating a more fluid communicative infrastructure for placemaking and destination development.
A true collaborative vision with the City of Madison's Economic and Community Development Department, the team integrated the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra and Wisconsin State facilities and officials over a two-year period of planning. CODAworx also contributed to the community documentation during the performance evening. Roney's projectionist team was led by LPE, Atlanta with Bruce Harlan, Production Manager; Tony Wallace, Projectionist/GoPro Camera; and Matt Bailey, Grip/Handheld Camera.
Horizons have always been an inspiring point of visual perspective – where the sky meets the Earth, where the land meets the sea – a point of infinite possibilities and a reminder of our place in the world; where “the beyond” is a place of wonder and excitement. This frontier can be expanded as our physical and virtual worlds overlap and further our interactions with one another in creating a sense of place. HORIZONS, responds to these potentialities inspiring fresh perspectives of discovery while redefining the places we meet.
