XYZ experts have built and installed 3 sails, 18 meters high on the wharf that is advancing in the Bay of Gaspe. Those 3 sails are hoisted every day to allow the presentation of an immersive mega-projection. During the summer season, A Tale of Time and Tides multimedia show is featured every evening, in both Canadian official languages.
XYZ’s content production team has scripted and directed the audiovisual production by combining annals footage, historical scenes and computer-generated images. For 18 minutes, a Mi’kmaq sage named Mi’Gma’gi, the Spirit of the Earth, accompanies the audience throughout the main periods of Gaspe’s rich history. All along the experience, light and sound effects punctuate the purpose, and support the scenography. The show has been programmed to require as little technical manipulation as possible. All projection equipment is discreetly integrated into the buildings, to alter the places as little as possible.
In addition to the technical installation required for the projection, the team has integrated ambient lighting on the wharf, architectural lighting on certain elements of the public square and motorized narrow-beam projectors, which create a luminous signature in the sky of Gaspe. The project was entirely conceived and realized in four months, to be able to launch the show the year of the anniversary of the Confederation.
