Insomniac events executive team challenged our team to create a post apocalyptic, projection mapping experience for the 2012 EDC Las Vegas Insomniac Bassrush stage. The structure which was designed by SJ Lighting and made out of scaffolding, skinned with scrim material and moving lighting fixtures was a perfect canvas for our mapping technologies.
V Squared Labs rose to the challenge and brought this incredible, immersive 3D projection mapping experience to life. Our team programmed, installed projectors and operated the Insomiac Bassrush stage for all 3 days of the electronic music festival. Utilizing a custom adaptation of our EPIC media server software we produced multiple HD outputs using 35k Christie Rhoadie projectors. The result was a real time, audio reactive visual performance that blew people’s minds.
V Squared Labs also booked VJ’s and managed artist content for all 5 stages of the festival. EDC is one of America’s largest and most successful EDM music festivals founded by Pasquale Rotella. The festival and has featured our visual artistry since some of the first events appeared in southern california.
