Double Negative Tour


Stage, LED

Indie rock veterans LOW contacted Smooth in 2018 with the goal of stepping up their live show to coincide with the release of their groundbreaking new record Double Negative. They needed something minimal in footprint but with a huge impact. Together we landed on a design consisting of 3 monolithic video-controlled LED towers. Each would serve to backlight and silhouette each member of the 3-piece live band, along with enough resolution to convey actual video scenes and images.

Smooth meticulously engineered the towers specifically for the touring world. Each tower was fully collapsible into a standard keyboard flight case and could be pulled out and re-deployed within minutes. Low successfully toured this system around the world to praise and critical acclaim, and were thrilled with the impact it had on their show.
