Ben&Ben will step into another form of giving entertainment to the people. The Inevitable Drone Show- It will be the first time to present a music performance by the use of drone lights to highlights the Manila Skyline in coeval design.
Presented by SMART 5G, the environmental friendly and unconventional performance will no doubt hit the headlines as its nearest places including the Rizal Park will enjoy and have the priviledge to experience this modern light show LIVE on February 28 (Sunday) at exactly 7pm. The show will at the same time air on Ben&Ben’s official Facebook page. The award-winning Filipino collective will perform an extended version of “Inevitable,” the celebrated song which was used as a soundtrack and music score for SMART 5G’s romantic sci-fi TVC starring Korean drama big stars Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin, to complement the picturesque storyline in the sky.
For their part, Ben&Ben immediately said yes to participating in this initiative that explores the creative possibilities of aerial entertainment, easily becoming the first Filipino band to mount a drone show.
“The first and probably the most immediate reason why we accepted this project is because it merges different forms of art with technology to create a one-of-a-kind experience for our audience,” vocalist and guitarist Paolo Benjamin shares in a statement. “Some of us have experienced drone shows before, but only set to pre-existing songs and records. The opportunity to actually score and record the music and live performance to one such show was something we could just not pass up on.”
Ben&Ben’s percussionist Andrew De Pano takes pride in the fact that the nine-piece outfit are also involved with the visual aspects of the drone show, and not just the music itself. “The mere fact that it’s a drone show is definitely a first big difference,” Andrew says. “We also had to base our music performance solely on a storyboard, which was a new experience compared to the usual scoring of a commercial with more or less final video footage to reference off of. We hope that with the work we put into it, the audience experiences the story of our song Inevitable, set to a unique visual experience that even we are especially excited for.”
The Inevitable Drone Show is a collaboration between SMART 5G and Ben&Ben.
‘Inevitable,’ the song that Ben&Ben will be performing, is out now on all digital platforms worldwide via Sony Music.
