As d3’s creators, London design studio United Visual Artists use d3 for all their cutting edge installations. Being one of the most challenging live projects to date, UVA were asked to redesign the main stage of the Coachella music festival in Palm Springs during April 2011, as part of the Vice/ Intel sponsored Creators Project. With a specially commissioned soundscape by award winning composer Mira Calix, the cube-like structure was not just an elevated performance space for bands; the stage itself became the performer. The show lasted several minutes and was performed numerous times during the festival.
d3 did an excellent job wowing the crowds and changing the shape of festival stages for good. Only d3’s pre-visualiser could have made the show possible: from setup to audio sequencing to driving 810 Barco Mistrips and 184 Colorblast 12’s.
