With a simple brief to create a high impact visual show, Notch artist Jason Steel got to work to enhance the ‘break the mould’ mentality that orchestra Synthony embodies. One of the most famous orchestras across New Zealand and Australia, Synthony is known for marrying classical music with modern dance music, utilising traditional instruments, and bringing a fresh take to the electronic dance scene. Steel wanted to enhance this, bringing a large scale nightclub feel in his designs to take the audience on a journey throughout the show.
All the content was either entirely made in Notch or rendered in Notch, making it an indispensable tool for this show. The show was then programmed through Disguise, utilising 12 NDI POV Cameras on stage, 1 PTZ camera and a box lens.
In addition to being the creative tool, Notch was chosen because of its ability to export real-time content as Notch Blocks, which was used throughout the show for live camera treatment, and brought together the content for the entire show seamlessly.
