Singapore Bicentennial Experience – Time Traveller and Pathfinder

Ctrl Fre@k embarked on a year-long journey with the Time Traveller – an indoor, 60 mins timed experience and Pathfinder – an outdoor, ‘free-to-explore’ installation featuring state-of-the-art audio, visual and lighting (AVL) systems as part of the Singapore Bicentennial Experience (SBE). This flag-ship event marked the 200th anniversary celebration of the founding of Singapore by the East India Company in 1819.

From the beginning, Ctrl Fre@k were appointed as the system designer and technical consultant for realising both the creative design and technical execution of the AVL and Show Control solutions for the entire experience. Understanding the needs of the experience and to execute to the highest level, in terms of both quality and reliability, we had gathered our collective experiences through the years and followed through the whole process from design to implementation. Apart from system design, Ctrl Fre@k also provided lighting design (entire SBE) and sound design (Act 3 and Act 5 of Time Traveller) services.

Ctrl Fre@k worked closely with various AVL equipment suppliers and vendors to ensure effective deployment and accurate installation, from playback sources through networked infrastructure and ultimately, to fixtures and instruments. Ctrl Fre@k then provided the team for system alignment, tuning and calibration. Once all the creative content is loaded, Ctrl Fre@k then took on the immersive audio mixing / programming, video media servers and lighting control programming and ultimately show-control execution and synchronisation of the entire experience.

To ensure the experience ran 13 hours a day for almost 7 months, Ctrl Fre@k also provided a team of technical operations crew that worked in conjunction with an extensive team of ushers and guides. Weekly scheduled maintenance and ad-hoc troubleshooting ensured minimal disruption of the experience that was eventually attended by 700,000 visitors.
