London   |   2023

During Live Again flocking ribbons of light flow to synthesizers and lead through to an infinitely growing forest in our work for The Chemical Brothers tour.

We designed and programmed a real-time flocking simulation in TouchDesigner that flows and undulates towards the stage center in time to the audio using the same rules and conditions that starlings would use in flight and trailing the movements to the distance.

For the forest scene we worked with various point clouds of plants and re-composed them into an infinitely growing scene that the audience could fly through.
