The huge atrium at the tail end of SkyAvenue has been the main attraction to many visitors since it opened last December. Thanks to its giant LED screen shows and recently added winch Installation performances, the SkySymphony.
The giant LED screen shows, an electronic mood board consists of three-storey high LED walls made up of small LED modules to form wraparound screens, is the biggest in Malaysia if not the world. The biggest of these screens is 25m x 12m and are placed in a way which immerses visitors into panoramic sight and sound presentations.
The result is a panoramic, immersive, nature-themed electronic presentation which runs throughout the day, mesmerizing visitors, to the point that some hang on the balustrade rails of the different levels of SkyAvenue just to experience the visual spectacular. For the presentation to be its most inspiring, visitors need to enjoy the music with the motion on the screens.
While guests have been impressed enough with the giant LED screen shows that it figures extensively in many a selfie or wefie, the latest is the largest winch installation display in the region. The show named SkySymphony consists of Kinetic balls which are plastic globes with an LED light inside. Each ball moves independently on a long cable attached to a motor which controls the height of a ball's descent or ascent.
The balls move vertically in order to be assembled into a series of programmed shapes. Each of these balls are suspended from a four-story high ceiling and is the fastest programmed winch speed at 17.5 meters in six seconds. This show is by far with the largest number of kinetic balls used in one single fixed display.
Together with the LED screens, the 1001 kinetic balls form the world's first electronic art installation which will see storylines projected on the LED screens while the kinetic balls move to form shapes to support the story's premise or trajectory.
SkySymphony is the largest permanent winch installation and the first multimedia winch attraction in Asia. There are currently three inaugural shows namely the Forest, Urban Symphony and The Goddess.
The Forest is a bioluminescent universe, where endangered species unique to Southeast Asia comes to life. Colourful and fluorescent 3D gesture drawings are used to demonstrate a striking coexistence of these diverse exotic populations, including the Sumantran tiger, Bornean orang utan, Asian elephant, Sumatran rhinoceros, and the hornbills.
While the Urban Symphony showcases the daily chores from waking up to going to work. Light-hearted take on live in the big city is part of the show paired with a jolly selection of music, adding a new groove to the daily grind.
The Goddess is inspired by a magical kingdom above the clouds. The Goddess is an imaginative narration about the beauty of creation. Real actors play the role of creators who conjure life forms into existence.
Shows are scheduled throughout the day, with different presentations on a rotation. It starts from 10 am to 6 pm with every two-hours intervals. After 6 pm, the show will be available hourly until midnight.
