The Night Show of the Arteplage Neuchâtel was conceived as a visual and aural spectacular that all visitors would experience differently.
Thanks to a space-limited broadcasting system, six different soundtracks were played simultaneously to accompany a water, fire and light choreography.
As they move around the show site, the spectators perceived the show in a different manner as the musical score changed. Each score was inspired by scientific data regarding a natural phenomenon such as the tides at the antipode of Neuchâtel, starlights or earthquakes.
The Night Show Comme un étrange appel featured fairytale games with water, fire and light accompanied by music on the Arteplage theme of Nature and Artificiality.
