About The Musicon Path

Along the pump track in Roskilde's creative quarter Musicon Bydelen, Liquid Light® creates a visual environment with its own unique expression.

The main theme of the project The Musicon Path is: play and learning. The idea is to simulate the movements of water because water is highly interactive and responds in different ways to different forces, and thus “inviting people to stay and play”.

The lighting concept is Liquid Light where the lighting is designed to have smooth intensity transitions with large variations. The concept consists of two layers of light. An architectural layer combining functionality and aesthetics, responsible for sufficient visibility of the users and for the general appearance of the area, and a behavioural layer responsible for the playful interaction, both direct and indirect, between the users and the pump track expressed as a flowing wave of light.
