E/T/C helps launch new aquatic centre

Large format projection specialists E/T/C London created spectacular 90m wide images and produced the soundtrack for a special large scale outdoor event to launch the new Sunderland Aquatic Centre, the North East’s first Olympic sized swimming pool.

Working with show producers Magnetic Events, the company interpreted an original storyboard to create a 15 minute collage of images based on aquatic themes, interwoven with water-related elements from the city's past and present, with 'the swimmer' at its core.

The show, entitled "A Poem To Sunderland", took an abstract, non-narrative format and the projections were beamed onto the side of the futuristic cylindrical building - designed by The Red Box Design Group - located adjacent to the city's Stadium of Light football ground.

E/T/C London supplied 6 PIGI 6kW projectors, all fitted with double rotating scrollers, and installed on a special projection platform constructed 165m away from the Aquatic Centre.

Using a unique projector design layout, four projectors were soft-edged together to compose the main projection, with the other two utilised for special effects.

The side windows of the Aquatic Centre were whited out to give a more uniform surface for the projections.

Water was also a common theme for the soundscape creation, with audio based on the storyboard and merging the sounds of industrial water-based elements such as shipbuilding and mining.

The soundtrack was played back from a 4-track A-DAT machine, to which the lighting was synchronised.

E/T/C London also worked very closely with the pyrotechnics crew from The World Famous. Many pyro cues were specific to the moving images, with flares going off as whales' blow holes spurted water off the top of the images and smoke effects oozed out of chimney stacks.
