An interpretation of the tale of Turlough O'Carolan, a blind Celtic harper considered Ireland's national composer. His story is told through the use of DMX lights, and colors and timing was integral in ensuring all the story beats were hit.

Due to the set up of the themed space, the design of the lights was integral as we had to direct the guests' attention from one side of the room to another; to get guests to turn around, we would dim the lights in the region they are currently facing and use peripheral lights to guide them into the correct orientation. "Moving" the lights by slowly illuminating sections of the room at a time was also employed to direct guest attention.
