Lady Gaga - Grammys
2016, Los Angeles

Lady Gaga hit the stage for a performance that paid tribute to the late David Bowie at the 2016 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. A key feature to the show was the trackable IntelCurie rings Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers wore during the performance; their 3D positions as well as a number of pre-defined gestures was captured in real-time and produced instant graphics using the visual engine Notch - mapped and played back by d3. d3 also triggered the robot animations, designed by andyRobot.

Being the link between the creative and the technical team Bild's David Bajt programmed and operated the show, integrated real-time 3d engine Notch, as well as planned and engineered the d3 media server system, together with Stephan Hambsch, Joss Gray and Troy Fujimura. The face mapping was created by the talented team of Nobumichi Asai.
