Marcus Lyall and Adam Smith, show designers for The Chemical Brothers #MusicMonday
In a recent interview, Dezeen spoke to Marcus Lyall and Adam Smith who create the wonderful show designs for The Chemical Brothers.
In the live shows, Simons and Rowlands play keyboards, and add samples and filters over a pre-recorded backing track. Meanwhile behind them, a huge screen, measuring 20 metres by eight, acts as the main visual focus for the audience.
The shows, which Adam Smith described as “ridiculously ambitious for a touring festival production,” also feature a light show plus physical effects including giant mechanical robots that shoot laser beams from their eyes.
“We try and find a new physical idea and a new lighting moment each year,” Smith said.
