â€œThe Blue Note Mysteryâ€? is an amazing new evening show devised by Yves PÃ©pin and produced by ECA2 for Futuroscope theme park in Poitiers, France.
E/T/C, specialist in high power AV projection, has been called by ECA2 and has selected Medialon to be the main controller of the show.
â€œThe Blue Note Mysteryâ€? is a visual extravaganza that transports spectators into a magical realm of sound and music.
Every evening, in front of a 5,000-seat open-air amphitheatre at Futuroscopeâ€™s lake, Mike, an exuberant DJ, and DJFX, a mischievous cartoon character, dive into the very heart of their own dream, sweeping visitors along with them as they head off on a madcap adventure into a wonderland of sound waves and music on their quest for the Blue Note â€“ the mythical sound that every musician dreams of finding.
The 25-minute show, which takes place on a 7,000sqm aquatic stage, displays an exceptional array of technical features including pyrotechnic effects, monumental water effects, lasers forming arabesques, shrouds of mist, a multitude of twinkling lights, gigantic flames and more !
During the show, giant images are projected onto two 25-meter and one 35-meter high water screens, and propel spectators into a three-dimensional universe: the secret world of musical creation.
One Medialon Manager PRO and one Medialon Manager LITE Show and Media Control Software control the entire show.
Four show control â€œuniversesâ€? have been created on Medialon Manager: one for the water illuminations, one for the water-jets, one for the pyrotechnic and flames, and a fourth one for the general show lightings.
Medialon Manager controls and synchronizes the following devices: 3x cinema projectors (35mm 7Kw); 5x doubles rotating PIGI (5Kw) ; 1x giant LED screen (28mÂ²) ; 3x color lasers (10-12 watts) ; 2x 25 m water screens ; 1x 35 m water screen ; 70x monumental fountain jets (45m high) ; Water effects: 300m line of mist ; Water effects: 7x geysers (8m span) ; Special effects ; 300x pyrotechnic effects fired ; 16x flame projectors (8m high) ; 2x flame projectors (17m high) ; 1,500x light reeds.
Â« Using a Medialon system has been a natural choice for Futuroscope theme park. They already had Medialon systems running for some of their attractions, and integrating a Medialon system on â€œThe Blue Note Mysteryâ€? show was obvious.Â», says Nicolas Paineau, E/T/C head programmer.
Â«Indeed, the use of Medialon Manager offers lots of flexibility and real-time testing which are ideal for this type of show.Â», concludes Nicolas Paineau.
E/T/C has also designed remote control user interfaces thanks to Medialon Manager PANEL software to allow Futuroscopeâ€™s technicians to easily control the entire show, check all the A/V devices working, and make updates of the show if needed.
This is the third time Futuroscope has asked ECA2 and Yves PÃ©pin to create and produce an evening show for the theme park. Over 50 people, ECA2 collaborators and partners, contributed to this new production over a 13-month period to offer visitors to Futuroscope a night-time show fitting for a major international theme park.
