WALL OF SOUND

DRUMSOUND & BASSLINE SMITH

Longtime Drum and Bass legends Drumsound & Bassline Smith approached us with a view to create a visually spectacular backdrop to accompany their new live show. Over the course of a year, we devised a design, built the Wall of Sound structure and worked closely with the guys in developing videos for each of their songs on their new album, as well as others which would be included in the live show. Each video consisted of 3 parts to sync to the drums, bass line and either the vocal or synth from the tune. Using Ableton Live for the playback, MIDI notes automatically trigger the corresponding video for each stem, and play it back accordingly and in time with the music. As the set changes and develops so too does the imagery; the vocals of one tune fade out, so too does the video for that section.
