Tanya Concert LEMURIA
蔡健雅 列穆尼亞演唱會


Singer Tanya Chua's 2016 World Tour LEMURIA revolves around the myth that in ancient times the earth was stunningly beautiful and replete with abundance; disease and violence were absent. When disasters later struck, the Lemurians entered the center of the earth to protect our world. Chua is one of these messengers, who uses music to soothe human beings and teach us how to love with her voice.

We were responsible for the visual designs of the three electro-style opening songs: "Strange species" (異類的同類), "Aphasia"(失語者), and "Film"(菲林), as well as the ECODOT LED Display in "Blank Space" (空白格).


蔡健雅 2016 的世界巡迴演唱會主題是「列穆尼亞LEMURIA」。這是一個古文明神話,描述當時的地球豐盛美麗,沒有疾病和暴力。直到災難來襲,列穆尼亞人才進入地心守護地球。而蔡健雅可能就是地心使者,用音樂撫慰人心,引導如何去愛。

團隊製作開場前三首電子風格的歌曲〈異類的同類〉、〈失語者〉、〈菲林〉的影像視覺,以及〈空白格〉中LED矩陣的即時影像。






The Songs as the Essence


In the beginning of the creation process, the team talked about how the melodies and lyrics of the three songs made us feel and how they inspired us visually. We brainstormed and came up with a few keywords and put these words into context for the storyline and the aesthetics settings.

一切從歌出發


一開始,團隊即討論三首歌旋律與歌詞帶給我們的感受與視覺想像,拋出了許多關鍵字後,整理脈絡,才製作故事腳本與美術設定。





Particle System


We developed a particle system to faithfully represent our aesthetic ideas. Point clouds were utilized as the key component of the visuals, simulating smoke, wind, and fractals to create a dynamic, psychedelic ambiance. With the use of Kinect v2, we are able to retrieve the point cloud information from performers in real time, thereby simultaneously layering the performer's action on top of the pre-made particle landscape.

粒子系統


因應美術的需求,團隊開發了一個即時粒子運算系統,運用點雲做為視覺主軸,可模擬煙、風、碎形等特效,營造出動態感強烈且迷幻感十足的現場氛圍。

而且透過 Kinect v2,可以取得現場表演者的點雲資訊,即時反應表演者的動作,疊合於預先製作的粒子地景中。






Photogrammetry


The storyline of "Strange Species" begins in a wasteland, and the traces of human existence are revealed one step at a time. We utilized aerial survey techniques to record landscapes in Taiwan, even going as far out as Penghu Island. We documented various forests, valleys, and abandoned buildings, and converted them into 3D landscapes.

攝影測量法


〈異類的同類〉的腳本設定場景從荒原一步步發現人類曾經存在過的痕跡。我們利用航空攝影測量的技術,使用空拍機橫跨台灣各地,遠至澎湖,從自然的森林山谷到各式的廢棄建築,並將這些素材建置為 3D 地景。










Sound Visualization


Sound is the key ingredient in concerts. In order to better relate the images to the sound, we entered the data from the drums, vocals, and other instruments as three different sets of parameters to correspondingly alter the motion of the particles.

聲音視覺化


演唱會中,聲音是一個非常重要的元素。為了賦予畫面與聲音有更多的連結性,我們將鼓聲、人聲與其餘的樂器共三軌的音訊作為參數,改變粒子的動態行為。


Fractals


Fractals are replications of patterns that look exactly the same at every scale; its idea is simple yet itself is by nature complicated. To truthfully represent the nostalgic ambiance of  "Film", we zoomed in and out to create a time-travel feel and used photos Chua's from daily life to form fractals that were then interspersed into the 3D landscapes and the main visuals.

碎型


碎型的特性是,在所有大小尺度下都顯得相似,但卻是無限複雜。記憶亦如是。為了表現〈菲林〉一曲的回憶氛圍,透過持續拉進畫面鏡頭,一如回憶的走馬燈,並將蔡健雅的生活照,實驗不同的碎形構成穿插在地景與畫面中。




ECODOT LED Display


With "Blank Space" (空白格), we projected 3D images of the live performance onto a 3x3m and 10m height LED cubic column.

立體 LED 顯示


在〈空白格〉一曲,我們將蔡健雅現場表演的 3D 影像,投放於十米高、三米見方的立體 LED 矩陣中。
