Nathan Taylor is the stage designer on the Creative team at Hillsong for the band’s world tour.
Nathan said they were influenced by modern architectural trends, ‘Mount Zion’ is one of the most unique creative expressions over the conference to date. Modern architectural trends?
I think he means architecture from ANCIENT Egypt!?
How then did he come up with the concept of ‘Mount Zion’?
“I was playing around with shapes and experimenting with the possibility of using them on stage as a projection surface. Mount Zion came quickly after the United album and Bobbie was inspired by Isaiah 52:7, “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”“ 16
Where are the tidings of Good News? This is just wishful thinking? The stage design looks more the 3 Pyramids of Giza?? A mountain that turns out to look nothing like a mountain, and therefore the message must be nothing like the gospel.
As cited previously “The pyramid exemplifies the initiation stage… it is the house of initiation, in which the candidate confronts the world of darkness and enters the world of spirit. By passing the tests of the elements, the candidate is initiated into the realm of higher consciousness.” (Hieronimus ibid., p.92)
So this is the gospel according to HILLSONG? Why is Hillsong dabbling in this mysterious unknown energy of the pyramid?
You know how you don’t want to create a conspiracy where there isn’t one, however I think I can finally put the theory to bed, and know for sure that Hillsong had only ONE source for its’ ideas and stage montage for its 2013 ZION Tour, — THE PYRAMIDS OF GIZA.!
Still not persuaded? Here’s Rihanna’s stage set from one of her concerts.
