In a first-of-its-kind immersive spectacle, dazzling digital imagery will appear to “bounce” between City Hall, the County Hall of Records and The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion as Los Angeles counts down to 2016.
HOLLYWOOD—On New Year’s Eve, three iconic buildings in downtown Los Angeles will provide the canvas for a projection mapping display unlike anything seen before. Part of the 3rd annual Grand Park + Music Center’s N.Y.E.L.A., the breathtaking spectacle of morphing light, color, shape and sound will envelop—and sometimes appear to travel between—the facades of City Hall, the County Hall of Records and The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and celebrate Los Angeles as it joins other cities around the globe in ringing in the New Year.
Conceived by Garson Yu, creative director of the multi-media digital design studio yU+co., in tandem with The Music Center’s Grand Park team, the projection mapping display will be the first ever to join three towering structures with synchronized animation. The more than 50,000 people expected to fill Grand Park, The Music Center Plaza and adjoining streets during the event will be fully immersed by the display with a theme of human connectivity and global celebration.
