If you haven't heard yet Krewella has embarked on a tour called, the ‘Get Wet Tour' in support of their debut album ‘Get Wet', which will be released September 24th. This tour features a state of the art Volcano…Yes Volcano. V Squared Labs in collaboration with Stefano Novelli are the ones responsible for creating the Volcano. Below you can read about the specifics of this Volcano, describing exactly how it is constructed as explained by V Squared Labs. Also, check out the video to see the Volcano from the beginning as a sketch to it fully constructed in action on tour.
The Volcano is a 30ft x 18ft superstructure incorporating reflection-mapped faceted crystals. The crystals are built out of a combination of one-way and two-way mirrored acrylic and were specifically designed to create contained infinite reflections. Each crystal is equipped with LED video access and/or interior LED tape, creating complex volumetric reflection effects which visually morph the structure from within.A central arc of faceted crystal clusters Make Up the base of the structure, grounding it to the stage like the base of a rocky volcano. LED panels peek out of this area like lava from within. At the apex of the structure are the performers, central to the entire design. Behind them an LED screen displays visuals and custom content while the corner crystalline pieces flanking them act as explosive fragments from the mountainous volcano of crystals below. Stage lighting is dispersed throughout to reinforce the form and composition, completing the dynamic design.
