40 types of fireworks for Marina Bay Singapore New Year's Eve Countdown 06/07



SINGAPORE: Usher in 2007 in an explosive and dramatic way with over 40 types of fireworks igniting the Marina Bay skyline come New Year's Eve.

The 8-minute display promises to be even grander than before.

If the sky's a canvas, then this year's fireworks display at Marina Bay could count as a masterpiece, spanning some 600 metres across the waterfront.

At the stroke of midnight, the sky will be glowing red, blue and gold. Some 1,000 shells of fireworks will be used in the display and it will also feature 300 special effects including outdoor pyrotechnics.

The dance between the fireworks and music is choreographed by 33-year-old Gideon Chiam.

It took him about a month to plan the visual treat, using fireworks and pyrotechnics from China, US and Europe.

Mr Chiam, who has worked on eight National Day Parade fireworks segments, says the display at Marina Bay this time is special in many ways.

For one, it will showcase interesting types of sparklers, some of which linger in the sky for up to a minute.

The Fireworks Choreographer says: "We are using the golden palm watershells. It's going to be launched from the land directly into the water, and when the shells touch the water, they will explode. There will be stripes, lines that you see, like leaves of the plant, which is in gold."

Another first is that the fireworks will be launched from two skyscrapers - One Raffles Quay and the NTUC Centre - to offer a different visual impact.

But the 8-minute segment, choreographed to Iskandar Ismail's music, is more than just a feast for the eyes.

Esplanade says it is a dialogue between people, man-made elements like the buildings, and nature, namely the sky and water.

Benson Puah, CEO, The Esplanade, says: "There is a wonderful element about having buildings involved, which are inanimate, but then the heart beats within these buildings and the fireworks really brings life to a building."

Expect the first few shots to be fired from the NTUC Centre as early as 10.30pm, building up to the grand finale at midnight.

Another prelude lasting 30 seconds will launch from One Raffles Quay at around 11.30pm.

Over 160,000 people are expected to countdown to the new year at Marina Bay this year. - CNA/so
