The Los Angeles Philharmonic kicked off its 100th anniversary season with a free concert for 18,000 fans at the Hollywood Bowl. The celebration marked the first project for Xite Labs, which used two disguise 4x4pro media servers to map the Bowl with dynamic projections and real-time visual improvisations for performances by Katy Perry, Kali Uchis, Yola, LAPhil, Herbie Hancock and John Williams.
LA-based Xite Labs is a design studio focused on creating immersive visual and auditory experiences. It was formed by content creator Greg Russell and visual artist Vello Virkhaus, who have headed their own separate companies for the last 20 years. “We met three years ago, started working together and found a great partner in each other,” says Vello. “The Hollywood Bowl concert was the first project under our new Xite Labs banner.”
