It’s the ninth time that the later summer event “Mystic Nights” has taken place in Bad Zwischenahn in Germany, with this year’s themes being “Poetry and Eroticism“. Happening over three evenings of the second weekend of September, the event brings fascination to thousands of people. Come nightfall, the parks landscape melts together with impressive light installations, large objects, mysterious shrouds of mist and mystical music, brought together into the largest artistic light production in the north-west.
Open-hearted presentations of blazing life could be found in the large European parks of rococo, baroque and the renaissance. Owner of the executing agency, Gundel Latanza, said that nowadays parks are only produced for sports, games and excitement and that they want to bring back the philandering and the coquetry.
The main objective for the use of LED technology was the reduction of energy consumption. Since the weather is never reliable, the organisers decided to use weatherproof LED technology by SGM. The energy consumption was reduced by two-thirds and significantly less cabling had to be used. Longtime co-operation partner Active Blue GmbH & Co KG positioned about 450 floodlights (most of them IP65 certified) as well as a dozen fog machines. They therefore used P-5 RGBW LED wash lights of SGM suited perfectly for several applications.
Four P-5s illuminated the look-out, which was also decorated by twenty neon tubes. SGM’s wash lights provided an impressing result with a colour spectrum from tender pastel shades to an intense blue and red tone. Beside several colour atmospheres, a high degree of brightness was also needed, therefor the P-5 has been the first choice. The smaller P-2’s, which are based on the technology of the P-5, were mainly used to illuminate smaller plants and sculptures. Obtaining the perfect angle of radiation and the desired view turned out to be easily achievable, thanks to the 3 different lens kits in 15°, 21° and 43° variations, which were used on both the P-2 and the P-5.
Twelve SGM Q-7 were utilised to evenly highlight tall trees, groves and areas, due to their 110° lens. Thus, they were placed on the roof of the nearby garden restaurant together with two P-2s. A unique light object, which wasn’t only illuminated, but which also delivered an active light-show could be found on one of the many large lawns. On a rondel, 10 SGM G-Spots were placed with even gaps to illuminate the silver gleaming object, as well as the night sky and the large lawn with static and dynamic looks.
SGM’s G-Spot is the first professional, weather-proof profile spotlight that exists. The main reason for the use of G-Spots was the fact that this moving light is protected from jet water, dust and sand.
