A Symphony of Lights

A Symphony of Lights is a synchronized building exterior decorative light and laser multimedia display, featuring 44 buildings on both sides of the Victoria Harbor of Hong Kong accompanied by music.  The technology was developed by Australian firm Laservision and cost approximately 44 million HK dollars.  It has attracted over 4 million visitors and locals so far, and is held every night for ten minutes.

 

Guinness World Records has named this the ‘World’s Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show’.

The show creates an all-round vision of colored lights, laser beams and searchlights performing a stunning, unforgettable spectacle synchronized to music and narration that celebrates the energy, spirit and diversity of Hong Kong.

There are five main themes — Awakening, Energy, Heritage, Partnership and the finale, Celebration.

The Hong Kong light show is a 10-minute display that takes place every evening at 8:00.  It uses 1 million watts of electricity, requires a full-time maintenance team and some of the light bulbs cost over $2,000.

I have never heard so-called environmentalists calling for Hong Kong to end this “waste” of electricity and resources — but they are trying to legislate what kind of light bulbs I’m allowed to use in my home.  What’s that about?
