We know Deadmau5 is always out to one-up himself, and this week Nokia in the UK offered him and his visual team a giant canvas. To celebrate the launch of a new handset on Monday night, Nokia set the world-conquering Canadian up with a stage under the Millbank Tower on the banks of River Thames in London. As the mau5 performed a half-hour set, the tower acted as the world’s biggest projector screen, as you’ll see in the video below.
In order to achieve the dazzling result, the building was blacked-out and each of its windows covered with vinyl. According to the Nokia spiel, “16 powerful projectors stationed 300 metres away on the other side of the river” then “beamed 4D images onto the structure”. Deadmau5 apparently created exclusive remixes of his tracks to accompany the visuals – and was no doubt paid handsomely for his efforts. After taking over the London skyline, how’s he ever going to return to this measly set-up?
