HARMAN’s Martin M6 Console A SMASH Hit In European Debut

BRISTOL, United Kingdom – Creative visual design company SMASH Productions has ordered and taken delivery of the first HARMAN Martin M6 lighting control console in Europe, making it readily available for rental and deployments for assorted shows and productions around the UK.

SMASH, headed by Alex ‘Junior’ Cerio and Tim Smith is known for its innovative, imaginative and fresh approach to production design, creating fabulous environments by combining lighting, video, visuals and scenic elements for any type of live event. Their work has encompassed many genres and styles, from corporate launches and parties, to touring with international DJs and bands.

“Investing in control elements to run mixed media shows is very much on our agenda, so we wanted a forward-looking console,” stated Cerio. “M6 definitely fits the bill, providing straightforward and simple control of complex multimedia and supplying the user with a look into the future with its variety of visual tools.”

The M6 is a state-of-the-art lighting console, which functions as an advanced ‘visual control’ surface, able to control any lighting rig from conventional moving lights to digital fixtures and LED pixels. The console can be hooked up to media servers in SMASH’s studio and used for pre-visualizing, designing, planning and programming shows in advance. The console also provides an element of continuity for shows on worldwide tours. With a Martin M2GO console and Ether2DMX8 node already in its rig, SMASH is well aware of the reliability and intuitive operational philosophies of the Martin M-Series of products.

“A massive amount of thought has gone into the M6 console and how it can be used by the most demanding designers, programmers and operators, like our friends at SMASH,” said Dave Stewart, Martin Show Consultant. “The M6 presents a real challenge to established control brands, with inventive and easy-to-use hardware like fast-dials access to parameters and multi touch-screens.”

The first SMASH Productions show for the new M6 was David Guetta’s special guest appearances on Rihanna’s UK & European stadium shows. SMASH recently provided production and visual design (lighting and video) plus technical co-ordination for the main stage of the Love Saves The Day Festival in Bristol. Additionally, Cerio is the Lighting Director for David Guetta’s on-going live performances.
