Christie Solutions Deliver Spectacular Visuals as Singapore Counts Down to the New Year

Christie® technologies delivered spectacular visuals during a projection mapping performance that enthralled massive crowds that turned up at Singapore’s Marina Bay area on December 31 to ring in the New Year and officially kick-off celebrations to commemorate Singapore’s 50th year of independence.

The stunning spectacle was made possible by Christie’s rental staging partner Hexogon Solution Pte Ltd, which deployed almost 60 Christie Roadster HD20K-J 3-chip DLP® projectors for a projection mapping show where a slew of images and multimedia content depicting the growth and development of Singapore from past to present were projected onto the enormous façade of the famous Fullerton Hotel and the iconic Merlion statue. This is the largest number of Christie projectors ever deployed for an event staged in Singapore to date.

The eight-hour extravaganza, known as “The Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2015”, was the most anticipated countdown party to usher in the nation’s year-long golden jubilee celebrations. Besides the mesmerizing projection mapping performance, it also showcased outdoor concerts featuring a star-studded ensemble of local and regional artistes, as well as carnivals and waterfront bazaars. Among the other highlights were a magnificent musical firework display, and a floating installation of 25,000 wishing spheres that reflected Singapore’s journey in the last 50 years and its citizens’ hopes for the future.

“Our heartiest congratulations to our partner Hexogon Solution for being selected as the projection provider of this momentous event and setting up the largest number of Christie Roadster Series projectors ever for an event held in Singapore,” said Lin Yu, vice president, Christie Asia Pacific. “This is a wonderful achievement and we’re absolutely thrilled that Christie’s visual solutions have been used to deliver a fantastic performance for everyone who attended this large-scale event, and helped create high quality, innovative, shared experiences that our customers love.”

Fifty-three units of Christie Roadster HD20K-J projectors were used for the projection mapping in front of the Fullerton Hotel, while six Roadster HD20K-Js were deployed for mapping the 8.6-meter-tall Merlion statue located near the Neoclassical-styled hotel. Both projection sites were synchronized for the show, with corresponding contents working hand-in-hand with the Marina Bay countdown lightings and fireworks. It commenced at 11:55 p.m. sharp and culminated in a countdown sequence to midnight, followed immediately by an eight-minute firework display to the delight of revelers.

Adrian Goh, managing director, Hexogon Solution, commented, “We are excited to present this projection mapping performance using the world famous Merlion statue and façade of the Fullerton Hotel as the canvas for this highly-anticipated event. Due to the scale of this performance, it is necessary for us to set up almost 60 Christie Roadster projectors to cover the entire area.”

However, the team from Hexogon Solution also had to overcome a number of challenges to get the visuals right. Goh noted that while the Fullerton Hotel – an old colonial building with very complex architectural features – was good for architectural mapping and transformation effects, the multiple depths of the building had resulted in distortion of images to be showcased.

“That was why we had to run simulations and tests to ensure that we can achieve the best possible results. I’m happy to note that through meticulous image adjustments and alignments, we have managed to deliver a vibrant and engaging show that made the ‘Celebrate SG50’ a very memorable and enjoyable one for all Singaporeans. Of course, the reliability and quality of the Christie Roadster HD20K-J projectors also played a role in making this a success,” he added.

Christie Roadster Series projectors provide unbelievably bright images with stunning detail and depth of color, releasing pure power with purpose-built features. Designed with built-in handles, an improved airflow system and multiple rigging points, these powerhouse projectors stack up against the rigors and stress of rental/staging. Featuring high-quality optics, 10-bit image processing and a variable contrast ratio of 1600–2000:1 for brilliantly crisp, detailed images, these compact projectors deliver crisp, clean images with perfect color saturation and spectacular video.

Sounds from the Circle VII – the Celebrated Annual Compilation of Global Artists – Promotes Over Four Hours of Lush, Culturally Diverse, and Captivating New Age Music.

New works span the globe on Sounds from the Circle VII

The Sounds from the Circle are ever-changing, as evolutionary and endless as the Circle itself. Every year, new artist members join the unique online community and contribute to its annual compilation, while others take pause to rest and rejuvenate, awaiting the next calling of their muse. For the seventh straight year, the New Age Music Circle – an online community of over 1700 artists – releases a refreshing new sampler presenting a microcosm of today’s vibrant international New Age music scene. It is available from participating artists in CD format, as a SFTC playlist on Spotify and via special promotions on Twitter @SoundsFTCircle using #SFTC7. There is also a dedicated presence on Youtube and Pinterest, a new outlet for this year’s release.

Sounds from the Circle VII is the seventh in a series produced by the founder of the network, New Age music consultant and pioneer, Suzanne Doucet of Only New Age Music, and associate produced by Beth Ann Hilton, of The B Company. If played continuously, Doucet says, Volumes 1 through 7 would provide approximately 28 hours of music, ranging from sweeping cinematic pieces to relaxing space music to exotic world beats. The producers and artists provide the compilation to hundreds of internet and terrestrial radio stations and websites around the world for airplay and giveaways.

Doucet says, “Each compilation takes on its own unique feeling, depending on the music submitted and how I am guided to curate it; this one, Volume 7, has a very lush sound to it overall. Since there is not one particular ‘New Age’ sound like in other music genres, our compilations are eclectic, yet carefully sequenced to take listeners on a relaxing sonic journey. When you look at the list of contributing artists, you’ll see that we include top composers from TV & Film, alongside GRAMMY® winners, ZMR Award winners and the best developing artists we can find from all over the world.”

Higher quantities of New Age albums than ever are being submitted to the world’s major music awards shows, and, Hilton – a media specialist in the niche — estimates, at least a dozen new media outlets dedicated to the genre have emerged in the last few years.

“New Age music is a very broad genre, and has updated its sound over time; it’s not what most people assume it to be,” Hilton says. “Most of the artists embracing the genre are individuals dedicated to making great music to help others – from either a healing or inspiring perspective – although others simply want to make incredible soundscapes. There is room for everyone. Many use their own time and money, self-publishing and self-distributing, because they can; they’re way ahead of the DIY curve. The best of this music has always been heartfelt, visionary, and painstakingly produced. You’ll hear achingly beautiful acoustic guitar, lush piano, didgeridoo, Native American flute, dulcimer, vocals, electronica, and sweeping instrumental pieces on SFTC7….and more. We’re very proud of these musicians and the music; they work very hard, and they have a lot of talent to share.”

Previous volumes of SFTC were lauded on renowned websites like New Age Music Odyssey, New Age Universe, and chosen as “Albums of the Year” by Reviews New Age and New Age World Music. In recent years, international radio programs such as Radio Despi’s La Otra Orilla in Spain or Radio Plenitude in France have dedicated entire programs to playing the compilation start to finish. Doucet and Hilton say they are eager to provide the compilation to any and all programmers who want copies for airplay and giveaways, available via e-mail request to bethhilton (at) theBcompany (dot) com, subject line: Radio Request.

The 49 participating artists and groups on SFTC VII’s include New Age Music Circle members (in chronological order) Ricky Kej & Wouter Kellerman, Fiona Joy, Minstrel Streams, Bryan Carrigan, Sean Christopher, Lia Scallon, Isadar, Spencer Brewer, Michael Dulin, Sherry Finzer, Jennifer DeFrayne, Pamela Jamian, Rupam Sarmah, Mythos, Lisa Downing, Peter Kater, Kristin Amarie and David Lanz, Denise Young, Anima, Merrill Collins, Bill Wren and Frank Ralls, Mark Pinkus, Tron Syversen, Louis Colaiannia, Michael Hoppé and Giuditta, Heidi Breyer, John Morgan, Joniel, Sensitive Heart, Peter Garnvik, Jerry Rockwell, 7and5, J. M. Quintana Cámara, Pete Calandra, Vibeke Sonora, Dr. Sounds, Michael Joseph, Anaya Music, Elise Lebec, Antje Nagula, Lynn Yew Evers, Natascha Wilczek, Tajalli, Zamora, Luna Blanca, Sunsaria, Suzanne Doucet, Jon Richards, and David Vito Gregoli.

This year, several thousands of the compilations are being distributed at music conferences such as MIDEM, the ZMR Awards and INATS, and conscious lifestyle events such as GATE, Sustainatopia, Whole Life Expo, Kirtan Festivals and more. Yoga Centers, massage therapists, office managers, and wellness practitioners who receive the album at such events enjoy the ability to play over four hours of relaxing music from a single CD.

The physical compilations, manufactured by TSI Digital Media, can be played in MP3-compatible CD players or in computer CD-ROM drives, and will download into iTunes. Packaging is a colorful eco-friendly cardboard sleeve with inserts listing each artist’s name, track, album title, cover art, and website address.
