Rogier Van der Heide, and his multi-skilled design team in collaboration with the BEP production team, including Wardrobe Engineer Tom Bennett, developed the technical concepts and facilitated the practical integration of the LEDs, OLEDs and the CRMX OEM wireless technology into the costumes.
75 OLED panels sparkling like mirrored glass were carefully applied to Fergie’s leather cat suit. The panels were wirelessly controlled through a specific software to orchestrate patterns and lighting sequences synchronized to the music; resulting in a truly innovative and integrated performance of music, lighting and technology.
apl.de.ap wore a leather LED suit designed to mimic a graphic equalizer with an integrated Philippine flag as a reflection of his national pride and love of music. Taboo’s unique suit complimented the group’s futuristic style with silicone studs to diffuse the light of nearly 1,000 LEDs moving in patterns across his body and wirelessly synced with the rest of his band mates.
