âThe Blue Note Mysteryâ? is an amazing new evening show devised by Yves PĂŠpin 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.
âThe 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 Futuroscopeâs 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 âuniversesâ? 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 (28mÂ˛) ; 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.
ÂŤ 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 âThe Blue Note Mysteryâ? show was obvious.Âť, says Nicolas Paineau, E/T/C head programmer.
ÂŤIndeed, the use of Medialon Manager offers lots of flexibility and real-time testing which are ideal for this type of show.Âť, concludes Nicolas Paineau.
E/T/C has also designed remote control user interfaces thanks to Medialon Manager PANEL software to allow Futuroscopeâs 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 PĂŠpin 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.
