MONTREAL, Sept. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quays of the Old Port and VYV are
proud to invite media representatives to a private projection of the Ephemeral
LIghthouse at 8 p.m. on September 25 and to witness the very first
architectural video-projection on the Quays of the Old Port of Montréal.
During this first initiative designed to showcase the heritage buildings
on the Quays of the Old Port, the Conveyor Pier Tower will be literally
transformed through the magic of sound and light. The Conveyor Pier Tower will
serve as the canvas for VYV Corporation artists, set to a soundtrack by Daniel
Bélanger. The visual concept developed by Cyrill Van Duynslaeger, VYV's
Artistic Director, is based on the powerful Photon software developed by this
young Montréal company that makes it possible to project video images onto
highly complex architectural "canvases."
The Ephemeral Lighthouse will thrill members of the general public on
September 26 and 27, at 7:30, 9:00 and 10:30 p.m., as part of the Fire and
Light event on the Quays of the Old Port during the Journées de la Culture.
