Trivium Interactive collaborated with Hamilton County, Ohio, to celebrate local Black musicians at the Cincinnati Black Music Walk of Fame. The Walk of Fame recognizes the impact of the region’s Black musicians, songwriters, and industry professionals throughout the decades. Some of the interactive media experiences Trivium created include the Beat Maker, a guided drum machine experience with narration from American Hip Hop producer Hi-Tek, the Takeover, a site-wide video and light show that features local DJs (Don Juan Fasho and Lincoln Ware) and artists (Q Kidz and Dylan Morton) each evening, and the Interactive Dance Consoles, a motion-sensing program that reacts to people’s movements with different graphic effects to encourage them to dance to music by artists from the region.
On some interactives, Trivium worked alongside inductees and those familiar with their impact. We interviewed singer-songwriter Penny Ford, funk icon William "Bootsy" Collins, the Isley Brothers, LA Reid, and others for Meet the Stars showcase videos, and shot green screen footage with several for our AR Band Interactive. In this flagship exhibit, visitors can virtually join a band with Bootsy or become back up dancers for Penny with a download opportunity at the end.
Trivium collaborated with JRA (experience development and design), Electrosonic (AV design, engineering and integration), Abernathy Lighting Design & EOS Lightmedia, Messer Construction, and Universal Contracting Corp (general contractor) on this project.
This project won the 2023 Cincinnati Design Award.
