Teenage Engineering's Musical Chandelier

Installation features eight OD-11 speakers controlled live from an OP-Z      18/10/19

Some of you may be interested in seeing this is action. This is what Teenage Engineering told us about it...

as part of london design festival we were invited by tom dixon to collaborate at the coal office. together we created a concept for an OD-11 musical chandelier, controlled by OP-Z, to effectively blend sound and light into a never seen before performance.

built and designed by louis yearwood, tom butterfield and george lazenbleep, the whole thing consists of eight OD-11 speakers, mounted upside down in an 80kg frame of aluminum, standing on the floor, as well as mounted in the ceiling. 16 rgb flex led strips run along the sides, all controlled live from an OP-Z using the enttec dmxusb pro, via a 24 channel dmx dimmer.

for the music we had a custom designed table, where all the equipment was laid out. all in all we used two OP-1:s (one stationary and one free, to be able to use the accelerometer), four OP-Z:s (one together with the oplab module to control the pocket operator modular 400, one for dmx to control the led strips on the chandelier, and two for main audio), and a PO-32 tonic, triggered via another oplab module. everything was played freely or synced via the oplab modules and lined out into a soundcraft signature mixer, using its built-in effects. from there the audio was fed directly to the eight OD-11:s in the chandelier as well as into a 12k watt custom sound system.
