Monday, November 28th: Nokia Lumia Live – Millbank Tower on the banks of River Thames was turned into a living, breathing entity as Nokia celebrated the launch of the Nokia Lumia 800 smartphone with the most spectacular light show the capital has ever seen.
Millbank was plunged into darkness with the iconic Millbank Tower acting as the canvas for a never-before-seen spectacular. Each of the 120 metre high building’s 800 windows were covered with vinyl as 16 powerful projectors, stationed 300 metres away on the other side of the river, beamed 4D images onto the structure, making it seem like huge butterflies were flying across the London skyline and that the tower was spinning around. Billed as the “future of live events”, the spectacular show was accompanied by music from super producer Deadmau5, who created exclusive remixes for the performance – adding the 4th dimension.
I’ll be back soon, I promise with a lot of long overdue music posts. A few more days and this school releases it’s grasp on my freedom for winter break, who else is ready?
