I managed a sneak preview as they were setting up and testing today so have not yet experienced the full show with the lights sequenced to original music to make the figures appear to move. This sounds like something not to be missed!
Some of the figures look like rugby players which may reflect the upcoming Rugby 6 Nations – could this be Stuart Hogg preparing for Saturday’s clash against the auld enemy?
Or perhaps basketball players here…
Or even the Thin White Duke making his moves…
These ones look more like gymnasts.
This will no doubt be clearer when animated.
Scottish country dancing maybe?
2 stick-people chilling while watching the dancing.
Last night, the greatest cultural show on earth launched with a mesmerising spectacle, the Harmonium Project.
John Adams’ Harmonium performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Edinburgh Festival Chorus was set against a stunning projection of light and animations on the outside of the Usher Hall in front of a crowd hypnotised and delighted in turn.
I have just switched from a Nikon (D3200) to a Fujifilm (XE-2) camera and now getting used to new buttons and dials. As we had some rain, I was doing soggy testing (me, not the camera), at least with the benefit of some nice reflective surfaces. The Fuji is much smaller and lighter than the Nikon, but, so far, I’m impressed with the quality of the images and, as previously posted, the low light capabilities.
This is St Andrews Square in central Edinburgh, looking across the tram tracks, towards the Harvey Nichols shop.
And looking down the throat of an incoming tram.
And finally, looking across shiny and reflective bike stands towards the ongoing demolition.
