Aries Moross joined Rob Sinclair to design the first festival show for London Grammar in 2021 at All Points East. The show relied heavily on Notch FX and cameras working in tandem with the lighting design.
…The night belonged to London Grammar and particularly to Reid. From the dreamy opening chords of Californian Soil, the 31-year-old singer-songwriter – commanding, statuesque, with a voice as icy clear as a vodka tonic – held the crowd in the palm of her elegant hand, as her silhouette, burning red in a heat map, loomed gargantuan on the screens.
She and her bandmates, multi-instrumentalists Dan Rothman and Dominic “Dot” Major, mixed defiant, soaring melodies (Lord, It’s a Feeling) with hypnotically pulsing dance tracks (Lose Your Head, How Does It Feel). The result was a hauntingly atmospheric set, helped along by cleverly timed strip lighting in glassy greens and purples; at times, it felt like the field below the stage was underwater.
