An epic journey of light, space, and sound. 18 October 2018 – Empress Ballroom, Blackpool

Conceived by Alex Rinsler, Director of Lightpool Festival, Light Odyssey was a technical and creative collaboration between QED Productions, the BBC Philharmonic, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and an incredibly talented team of digital artists, to mark the official launch of Blackpool’s Lightpool Festival 2018.

Music that changed the world when it was written was experienced in an entirely new light by the sell-out audience in the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens on the evening of October 18th. The spectacular 90-minute show of the breath-taking projection mapping and live performance by the BBC Philharmonic was also recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
