Pyro-Musical & Concerts
Pyro-musicals are a favourite for spectators due to the extra ‘wow’ factor that choreography of fireworks with the music. The fireworks are either fired to a mix of pre-recorded artists or a live orchestra or band at concerts. Phoenix designers propose music tracks that would be appealing and synchronise the fireworks to fire for maximum effect.
The music can reflect the mood of the spectators with tracks that are current, exciting, fun and innovative, or to old classics that everyone knows and loves. However, not all songs are good for fireworks. For it to work well it needs to have dynamic variation. Therefore, choosing the music for a display is a two way process with the client and the designing team. Songs are suggested by both sides to find the perfect combination for the audience and the fireworks. The display is then designed by choreographing the fireworks on a programme called Show Sim 3D. The show is simulated and the client can see the show, or alternatively it can be left as a surprise!
Pyro-musical shows can be used for any event, from a concert to a wedding. Phoenix won the title of British Musical Fireworks Champions in 2007.
Phoenix will work closely with you to choose the right music to create a fantastic event that won’t be forgotten!
Firework finale’s for pop concerts and festivals to many well known Rock & Pop groups
Outdoor musical concerts with fireworks was first started in the UK by Ian Craig of Phoenix Fireworks.
He worked with English Heritage to start the Kenwood Bowl concert in London that was fired by Phoenix for 33 years and then spread it to other venues like Leeds Castle where it has been fired for 26 years by Phoenix. Crystal Palace was also one of the early venues to embrace the concept with Phoenix. Phoenix has performed with nearly all the UK Philharmonic Orchestras.
