"Coming through the rock, the crazy alleys, it was just like “what is that?” It’s like straight out a film."

FRAY Studio joined MDLBeast and Cassius Creative to create real-time visuals using Notch for Azimuth AlUla 2022 Festival.   We projected a 220m wide canvas over a sunning rock formation that frames the sun rise and sun set. The two day Festival took place in the majestic desert area know as AlUla, surrounded by Saudi Arabia's first UNESCO World Heritage Site and historical ruins dating back to 6th century BC.


FRAY Studio designed the visuals for Azimuth AlUla 2022 Festival.   We developed a visual narrative drawing inspiration from the location's nature and landscapes, the Festival's identity as well as the time of day since the festival took place from dusk until dawn. Utilising FRAYs extensive real-time toolkit, we designed over 20 unique looks, all created in Notch, which could be dynamically altered live to respond to the music, lighting and action on stage. FRAYs visuals were also used as a backdrop to performances by Kelis, Damian Lazarus and other musicians throughout the festival.
