Lasers de São João, was the first of the Laserfield series.  It was an immersive laser installation created in the city of Porto to commemorate the city’s patron, São João.

The visual and sound content was predefined in a timeline, running in twenty minutes’ loops. The score was divided in four sections, each one related to four different  S.João’s folk and pagan traditions (bonfire, waterfall, summer solstice and fireworks).

In each section the colors, visual shapes and soundscapes were different relating to the section’s theme.
