NIN’s Moment Factory
Nine Inch Nails were in town last week; a stop on their Lights in the Sky tour. And as good as Trent & Co’s music was, it was the on-stage light show that was truly spectacular.
I’ve never seen anything like it. The whole set was at times engulfed in light from no less than 108 backing spotlights. But the really innovative bit was three light screens which would descend upon the stage, sometimes behind the band and sometimes in front of them. The screens would alternatively display some beautiful ambient images and interactive walls. You kinda have to see it to understand it.
The show was created by Montreal’s Moment Factory and they’ve put together a short making-of video well worth watching. Highly imaginative and typically (for NIN) pioneering work.
