RAYA LIGHTS & SOUND SHOW 2012

RAYA Lights & Sound Show is a 1-night event aimed at promoting heritage through new media technology, video projection mapping (VPM) at its best combined with traditional Boria. It becomes a celebration of lights and sound as colorful visuals and kaleidoscope patterns are projected onto Penang’s Town Hall. This Penang State-initiated event was especially organized in conjunction with Hari Raya and the Malaysia Day celebrations, held on the 16 of September 2012 from 8.00pm to 11.00pm at the Penang Town Hall, Pulau Pinang. It was organized by DAM Productions, commissioned by Penang Global Tourism and main anchor sponsored by IJM Land. The event was launched and officiated by the respected Penang State Minister, Dato’ Lim Guan Eng.

During the Boria sketch performance, the VPM projects a face onto the building and it slowly begins to ‘interact’ and ‘respond’ to the actor’s dialogue. The VPM had repeated threetimes throughout the night starting from 9.15pm, 9.45pm and 10.15pm.
