Gala of Lights is Moment Factory‘s newest permanent attraction for Hong Kong’s Ocean Park. The experience includes four multimedia shows: a 12-minute acrobatic show produced in collaboration with the circus troupe The 7 Fingers, a 5-minute mapping show using the entire façade of the site as a canvas, and two water fountain and light shows.
Troublemakers was mandated for musical composition, orchestral recording, sound design and on-site integration of audio content.
As Troublemakers’ first project on Chinese soil, Gala of Lights is set apart by the opportunity to compose for a troupe of circus artists. The relationship between music and acrobatics is so intrinsic that the composition work was done between rehearsals over a period of almost six months, with some last-minute changes even during integration. These last-minute changes were an added challenge when handling on-site orchestra recording sessions with more than 20 musicians!
