FRAY Studio: Generative Content for Theatre


Previously we have been slaves to time code. If we wanted anything to land on the beat or significant musical moments Time Code was the only way. Musical directors changing BPM or adding bars causes havoc and often a lack of understanding of how other departments use time code leads to chaos; all of this makes producing content for live theatre or anything else a challenge.

On Frozen we wanted to create a living, responsive and seamless Aurora Borealis the was able to behave musically with no time code.  Learn how we used Notch to build the aurora and then make it perform like another character in the show.
