The Wall

So! I went to the Roger Waters show last night at the Rod Laver Arena. Awesome show, he played the Wall, and well, built the Wall. Nice special effects on their projections. What really flipped me out was his relating the story of the Wall to the modern social situation of the world (capitalism, modern war). The faces of war victims were projected on the wall. This leads me to the Wall itself. As the Wall was being constructed during the show, every brick must have been made from some phosphorous material. When each brick was placed, it was not immediately "active" with the projection. It took a few seconds for the brick to become fully illuminated. Really cool effect. Oh yeah, and there were indoor fireworks, awesome music, and of course Waters! -Matt
