Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Getaway Tour

Red Hot Chili Peppers in a multimedia jam session

Kinetic installation is synced with digital content on stage and responds to the rhythm of the show.

It was an honour to collaborate on the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Getaway Tour. The fruit of this collaboration was revealed in September 2016 with the launch of the Peppers’ arena tour, in Budapest.

Moment Factory had the opportunity to work with TAIT’s kinetic light installation comprised of over 1000 Nano Winches and connected LED fixtures which hang above the band and the audience in sweeping waves of colour. It moves 60 feet vertically and as quickly as 10 feet per second creating 3D shapes, textures and movement.The installation was conceived with the band, TAIT and Scott Holthaus, as a way to bring fans even deeper into the music. So as the audience is surrounded by live sound, they also are immersed in colours and shapes inspired by each song on a new set list drafted each night.

For the largest kinetic installation produced for a tour, Moment Factory’s contribution included the design and creation of the content displayed in the kinetic installation as well as the LED screen behind the musicians. In collaboration with Scott Holthaus and Leif Dixon, Moment Factory designed a multimedia toolbox that crafts a dialogue between the playback and TAIT’s Navigator Automation Platform in order to create shapes on the kinetic installation. This ‘dialogue’ extends the band’s live presence and energy from the stage out over the crowd with an ever-evolving set of surprises.

The result is especially exciting because it creates a unifying, organic link between the installation, the audience, and the band. We were thrilled to contribute to an unforgettable fan experience while developing the next generation of live shows.
