Light Show on King’s College

As part of the Cambridge Festival of Music a light show called “PLENUM” is to be beamed onto the east end of King’s College Chapel. They were setting up and testing as I walked home from a ghost tour this evening.

The show runs from 7pm to 10.30pm this Thursday and Friday night. Best viewed from King’s Parade.

It is a computer generated light projection created by Simeon Nelson, with a soundtrack by Nick Rothwell and programming by Rob Godman.

15 minute sequences show a series of illuminated dots, with no two sequences the same. Apparently inspired by Simeon’s conversation with astrophysicist Professor David Wilkinson and “accounts of how the world came into being and how the cosmos maintains life and consciousness …WOW! That’s well over the top of my head but I’ll be heading down tomorrow evening with the grandchildren as I just know it’s going to be spectacular!
