Re: OT NINE INCH NAILS in Concert tonight in Oakland: ASTONISHING LIGHT SHOW

More skinny on the show's production:



"For the most part, those visuals come from Reznor and Rob Sheridan, Reznor's creative partner and the art director for NIN. But the two had considerable help from a few outside parties in putting together the production.

Roy Bennet, a veteran lighting designer who worked with Reznor on the Downward Spiral and Fragile tours, designed and put together the LiTS set according to Trent's initial specs.

It was also Bennet who suggested bringing in the other key part to the show, a company called Moment Factory."

Quoting Rick Walker <looppool@cruzio.com>:

I know this is a bit off-topic,  but
I just saw a truly amazing show tonight:

Nine Inch Nails at the Oakland Coliseum.

I have to say that this show had the best, most modern,
glitchy and inpiring light shows I've ever witnessed.

I'm actually more turned on by the Lighting Director as I am
by the crack band that Trent Reznor had assembled on this,
the 2nd to last show of his long current tour.

The guy did the whole show with thousands and thousands of
small LED lights.    The design was just brilliant and frequently
it was interactive with the band.

There was a huge LED array behind the band and then there was
a secondary LED array on a huge see through curtain that went
all the way across the stage so that you could see the band
THROUGH the light show.

In one segment,  the drummer came out and , by touching,
large white squares on a gigantic see-through curtain,  the lights turned
red and he programmed a drum maching in real time for the piece that
was playing.

I wish I could describe more of it, but I felt like I was watching the future
of large scale concert presentation (especially, visually).

.....and Reznor (who was in fine voice)  didn't even introduce the L.D.
at the end of the
night in his introductions.    Shame on him (unless the guy didn't want
to be introduced)

The guy is a genius.
