Valy at the Genesis Centre’s Feature Gymnasium

On January 3rd 2015 we had the distinct pleasure to work with Valy a multilingual musician who currently resides in Herat, Afghanistan. You can check out a few of his high production value YouTube videos on his label’s YouTube channel here.

We outfitted the Genesis Centre’s feature gym with a complete QSC sound system featuring four QSC KW 153 series tops and four QSC KW 181 sub woofers for mains. We also provided six 15mm birch wood cabinet QSC HPR 122 speakers in which we used four as monitors and two for front fills.

Our lighting rig consisted of twenty four feet of Soundking truss ground lifted on twelve foot lifts. The trussing was outfitted with six Par 56 LED 3 Watt fixtures and 4 Chauvet Intimidator Spot LED 350 movers.
For front wash we provided two ETC Source 4 on a crank stand from the mix position and all of the lighting was run from our four DMX universe pearl 2010 lighting controller.
Lighting Console
I was thankful for the ability to easily control the movers positioning on the fly with the lighting console as the lead singer would often mingle with the crowd while singing. The back lighting from the intelligent fixtures had a very nice affect, although when we next work with this artist, I will most certainly arm my crew with a follow spot just in case.
Sound and Lighting Production
I was particularly happy to see a convenient loading dock and plenty of available power for the new venue as it was my first time working in the Genesis Centre’s new "Feature Gymnasium".

The show went off without a hitch and our staff were able to enjoy some really nice Afghan inspired food.
We are looking forward to working again within this community and are very pleased with the new event facilities available in this bustling north east community center.

Driven 2013

Filed under: Events — Tags: , , , , , , — Kyle Napier @ 11:26 am

Last Saturday, we worked with Urban Audio to set up for Toyota Scion’s presentation at the Driven 2013 car show.

Congratulations are in order for their Best in Show awards – both Interior for their 2011 Scion TC and also Commercial Display which we’d helped to coordinate.

2011 Scion TC – Best in Show – Interior – Mike Boldt/Stampede Scion

2011 Scion TC – Best in Show – Interior – Mike Boldt/Stampede Scion

Best in Show – Commercial Display – Stampede Scion

We ran 10 Chauvet SlimPAR 64 LED lights across a 32′ horizontal lighting truss and six uplights at the bases of each section of vertical truss. When the lights are aimed right the truss illuminates the vehicles and keeps the audience’s focus on this display.

After setting the most accessible light to serve as the Master, the other lights followed suit for a steady lighting fade and gradient into various themed colours.
