“jaw-dropping" - The Independent

CONCEPT + DESIGN

For ODESZA's mainstage performance, the goal was to design elements that used automation + extended the stage, while still being able to deploy it during a festival change-over of 35 minutes. Working closely with the production team (Motion Music) and set builders (TAIT), the final design allowed for 20+ different looks utilizing a full 12 piece drumline, automated lifts, horn section on risers, acoustic b-stage, custom 10k visuals mixed with directed IMAG content and an automated "logo set-piece" running on automation. ODESZA's Coachella show was regarded as “one of the most-sought after festival acts in music" by Idolator, “jaw-dropping" by The Independent, and as a show that "will most definitely go down in Coachella history" by EDM.com.

"Time sped up and slowed down, hearts stopped and began racing all at once, and technological spectacle felt organic in ODESZA’s live performance at Coachella." - Dancing Astronaut
