Sky Symphony is a light, water and sound installation on the Yarra River, created by Australian laser specialists LASERVISION, featuring the orchestral music of Melbourne composer Shaun Rigney.

Sky Symphony emerged from Shaun's desire to connect with people, and to work with the magic of lasers projected onto mist. Starting as a collaboration between the composer and a collective of twenty seven volunteer photographers, this event has grown into a synthesis of light, water, music and the sky.

The symphony, recorded for this project by the Orchestra Victoria, was composed in response to the images the composer requested from the public. Those images form the basis of the dazzling water projection created by LASERVISION. Starting from the question "how does a composer connect with listeners in the modern world?", Shaun considered one possible answer: Create something together. From the collection of three hundred images that he received, a symphony was born.

Then came a second question: How can we bring this project to life? This is where LASERVISION have transformed ideas into breathtaking reality, by creating an elemental choreography of light, water, music, and sophisticated laser and hydraulic technologies.
