Light Night 2016 - We Are Universe

07 October - 07 October 2016

Musicians from Leeds College of Music are joined by dancers from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, animators from Leeds College of Art and VJ Oscar Barany, for a Light Night spectacular; We Are Universe.

This collaborative installation of improvised music, dance, digital visual art and animation, explores the relationship between the elements in the universe and the human interactions which make up our communities.
Internationally renowned artist and Leeds College of Music alumni, Nicolas Dixon, has been commissioned to paint the 100ft wall inside the iconic Kirkgate market. To mark the unveiling of this stunning new work on Light Night, award winning Leeds based video production company Motiv Productions will be augmenting the piece with brand new animations. 

Oscar Barany is a third year student studying on the BA (Hons) Animation degree at Leeds College of Art. He has created a series of animations in abstract that are inspired by physics, geometry and colour, which will be mixed live alongside a multitude of different musicians. He uses audio reaction technology live to create a synthesis between my work and the musicians that are performing.
