The Wall of Sound - LausanneSound design - Synchronisation - Technical directorA Dufour, Maison de création showA one of a kind experience, The Wall of Sound is a pyromusical show that amazes with its unique conceptual and scenography approach. Perched in an 18 meters high by 27 meters wide scaffolding wall, 300 choristers and musicians revisit popular musical hits. Their voices echo in the night while the Wall becomes an imposing projection surface that serves as a vehicle through which the story of each song is laid out in images and punctuated by pyrotechnic bursts. As the party mood sets in, icons of the local scene join the choir, to the greatest delight of thousands of spectators. Endowed with an evocative power, it is literally a human wall that stands before the audience with all its warmth.
