Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains

The Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains exhibition, opening at the V&A Museum in London in May 2017 has been a long term touring project for Media Powerhouse, with the team being responsible for the design and installation of the exhibition AV systems to suit each tour venue. 

System design has been realised using Media Powerhouse supplied rental equipment including projectors, lenses and media servers for the duration of the tour.

The exhibition involved working closely with Sennheiser to implement the Guideport audio guide system, and the immersive ‘Performance Zone’ allowing visitors to experience the exhibition at their own pace.

The ‘Performance Zone’ features large format projection and 3D audio, containing over 20 independently controlled speakers, fully immersing the visitor in the last Pink Floyd Performance from Live8 2005. The team worked with the exhibition curator, Aubrey Powell, to design and deliver the AV system, included the design, editing and rendering of content live on-site for the ‘Performance Zone’ to ensure it lived up to the design team and the band’s expectations. 

Media Powerhouse were also responsible for providing technical crew to support the exhibition full-time in London and Rome along with remote support for the Dortmund and Madrid legs. 

For the Madrid leg of the tour, the Media Powerhouse Special Projects team implemented a comprehensive show control system to schedule the power on and off of the AV equipment and show lighting system following the venue opening hours. This allowed for a fully automated system, without need for daily technician attendance as in previous venues, with the venue team supported remotely from the UK to resolve any issues without costly site visits being required.

Media Powerhouse has had the pleasure of working on the Pink Floyd exhibition tour over the last three years, allowing the team to utilise their expertise in system design, configuration and installation to bring the show to life in a variety of complex venues across Europe.

“Imaginatively conceived, fascinatingly curated, beautifully designed and stunningly realised, the Pink Floyd exhibition is something of an audio-visual tour de force for a museum that has become adept at putting pop culture in a highbrow gallery space.”

Neil McCormick | The Telegraph

“The ending, a vast, four-screen projection featuring the band’s final live performance of Comfortably Numb before Wright’s death in 2008, remixed in 3D audio, is stirringly immersive.”

Ben Luke | The Evening Standard
