A reloaded version of ‘Nightscape’ is coming to Longwood Gardens

With three new elements and further music synchronization, this year's exhibit is even trippier.

The trippy Nightscape exhibit which wrapped light and magic around vegetation last year is returning to Longwood Gardens for a new season, and it’s bringing some fresh music and installations with it.

Aug. 3 marks the inauguration of the Klip Collective creation at Longwood. This year, music will play an even more central role, with synchronized strains of Bach, Brahms and Debussy — performed by Philly musicians — playing seamlessly off each other.

The soundtrack for both years of the exhibit will be made available in digital download, and there’s even a limited-edition vinyl album available at the GardenShop and online. (Full disclsoure: Longwood ran a sponsored content campaign with Technical.ly last year, which you can read about here.)

There are three brand-new core elements to the installation.

  • Exhibition Hall in the Conservatory, which features a “kaleidoscope of light and sound”
  • Mediterranean Garden, with blue and green hues playing off the foliage
  • Waterlily Display, which has elements of light reaching out from the waterlily pools

“The addition of new, imaginative installations means that whether you have never seen Nightscape, or if you have seen it many times before, there is something new for everyone to enjoy,” said Longwood Gardens Executive Director Paul Redman.

A whole calendar of activities has been created around the exhibit at the 100-year institution, which has been flirting with the tech scene for some time now. Details in the link below.
