7 Wonders Designers Butch Allen, Bob Bonniol, and Pablo Molina teamed up with Bruce Rodgers and the phreaks at Tribe Designs to create a hard hitting show for Paramore. Butch and Bruce worked to shape a fractured space full of LED, light, and levels. Paramore is nothing if not LIVE, but this thumping rock band wanted two things from video: Raw and primitive looking IMAG, coupled with content as tightly cued as if it were running to timecode. Bob and Pablo, working with the MODE Studios team, designed a system of 24 lipstick cameras, coded a custom media server, and created a suite of procedural music driven content code that sampled from 16 tracks of live input to create content looks on the spot and totally interactively. The result had fans shrieking with delight across the globe…
