Massive Attack World Tours 2014-2016

For Massive Attack’s 2014 Tour we designed as part of United Visual Artists a stage with kinetic, rotating LED Mesh panels whilst also directing the overall visual design and sequencing of the Tour’s individual tracks. For the 2016 Tour stage design centred around a central protruding section of LED, reminiscent of the Google Search bar. Content was designed to interact with this physical statement.

UVA have a long and ongoing collaborative relationship with the band Massive Attack. Since their first project together in 2003, UVA have worked closely with Robert Del Naja developing concepts and designs for the visual aspect of their live performances.
The shows feature LED typographic displays that harness real-time data gathering. Often content is politically charged, topical, thought-provoking and with a strong social conscience, sometimes multi-lingual and location-specific. Over the various tours subjects have ranged from net neutrality, censorship, data privacy to corporate greed, the violation of human rights and the politics of war.
