Swisscom's Expo 02 pavillion, The Empire of Silence.

Another project for Stage One that required a show control system capable of running four independent, but interlocked time lines, handling around 1000 events in a twenty minute period which ran continuously throughout the day. Most commonly used communications protocols were pressed into service for this event including DMX, midi, RS 232/485 directed over kilometers of cabling. Many long nightly programming sessions tuned this remarkable show into an invigorating experience enjoyed by over 5,400 visitors a day.
