2016 marked the 17th year of the famous Electric Zoo here in the United States.
Approximately 100,000 fans gathered together on the ‘Wild Island’, aka Randall’s Island Park, to experience the electric urban jungle that overtakes New York City.
The festival rang true to its promise of “new stage designs inspired by larger-than-life animals and the thrill of exploring new worlds…”, eliciting excitement from zoo-goers with an insane white and black cobra that was the main stage.
Approximately 70’ high, the cobra seemingly lurked until it came alive with lighting, video walls, and Pyrotecnico’s close proximity pyrotechnics, flames, confetti, and lasers. One of the most captivating moments was when the cobra beamed its bright green laser eyes out across the Wild Island, while lasers hovered just above the audience.
“Pyrotecnico FX is proud to have been part of Electric Zoo for a third year. Each year we strive to do something different and even more creative for our client and the audience. When we saw the stage design this year, our laser lead, Jesse Parker, saw the opportunity to bring the cobra “alive” in laser. Along with ten FX Series 20w RGB, and two FX Series 24w green lasers (for the cobra’s eyes), he used Pangolin’s Beyond software with FB3 hardware to design the effects and control the lasers to make this awesome effect.”, Pyrotecnico Creative Director Rocco Vitale.
