Mid-America Emmy award winning composer Julian Bickford, collaborated along with Quixotic's Shane Borth on a custom score to celebrate Union Station’s 100 year anniversary at the Kansas City Chiefs' kick-off rally on September 5, 2014.
“The Monument Comes Alive” was a never-before-seen high-tech journey created by Quixotic & Bazillion Pictures to show 100 Years of Union Station History. Using state of the art projection mapping and twelve 20K digital projectors, the exterior of Union Station was transformed into an enormous 3D digital canvas that soared a full ten stories tall and one city block wide.
From George Guastello, president and CEO of Union Station Kansas City:
“We have created an event for the entire community that not only pays tribute to Kansas City’s most iconic landmark, but celebrates our shared history. That history has been captured and brought to life by the creative visionaries at Quixotic, who took the crowd on a fully immersive digital ride the entire city will be talking about for many years to come."
Original music composed by Julian Bickford of BicMedia and Shane Borth of Quixotic, brought the visuals to life.
Bickford is co-owner at BicMedia, a Kansas City Crossroads based audio-visual production studio, composing music for use in video, film, and national brand advertising. He has won several awards for music production, including regional Emmys, Addys, & Tellys. Bickford is also the lead producer of Cool Jingles.
