Wednesday, the Empire State Building displayed a light display and New Yorkers were surprised and wondering what it was all about; the news has created a buzz Thursday. The light display was synchronized to “Girl on Fire” song by Alicia Keys. The Empire State Building released a press release this week explaining the incredible new light display using a Philips Color Kinetic lighting system that allows:
customized light capabilities from a palette of over 16 million colors in limitless combinations along with effects previously not possible such as ripples, cross-fades, sparkles, chasers, sweeps, strobes and bursts. In addition to greater control and management of the lighting, the new computerized system will deliver superior light and vibrancy levels in real-time, unlike the previous floodlights.
Alicia Keys had this to say about the new Empire State Building light show:
The Empire State Building has always been a symbol of what’s possible in New York. And all the dreams that can come true in this city that never sleeps. I’m so excited to unveil the new tower lights that are going to illuminate the city below like never before—shining bright with inspiration. As a proud New Yorker, I’m so honored and humbled to be a little part of its history.
See the video to the left to see the light show synchronized to “Girl on Fire”.
