Toronto, Canada, September 2010: Located at the heart of the metro area and home to the city’s best concerts – both classical and contemporary – as well as theatrical productions and other live performances, the Toronto Centre for the Arts is a cultural jewel not just of Toronto, but of North America and the world. Built in 1993, the Centre’s George Weston Recital Hall seats 1,000 and is proclaimed by many to have the best acoustics of any recital hall in Canada. Nevertheless, many contemporary performances in the hall require, by their very nature, a sound reinforcement system. The centre recently replaced the deteriorating system that was put in place when the hall was built, with a new one centered on an L-ACOUSTICS dV-DOSC line array. more

SOUTH BEND, INDIANA – SEPTEMBER 2010: Holy Cross College in South Bend, Indiana delivers what many would consider the ideal undergraduate experience. Its deliberately small size, religious underpinnings, and focus on real-world, applied skills make Holy Cross alumni uniquely qualified to successfully navigate the challenges of modern life. As part of its effort to provide a well-rounded experience, the college recently completed a new recreation center, christened the Pfeil Center. As the largest meeting space on campus, the center not only provides modern amenities for Holy Cross’ indoor sports and student recreation, but also hosts large events, such as welcome and graduation ceremonies. By using a Symetrix Automix Matrix 780 signal processor with Symetrix ARC wall panels, northern Indiana A/V designer/installer Last Pew Sound Engineering delivered a tremendously flexible, intuitive and affordable sound reinforcement system for the Pfeil Center that elegantly accommodates its many functions. more

HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA – SEPTEMBER 2010: To say the production and songwriting team of Wally Gagel and Xandy Barry has worked with a variety of musicians would be an understatement. From their collaborations with established artists (Rihanna, Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Backstreet Boys, New Order) to their experiences with rising talent (Styrofoam, Second Son, Axiz, Tamar Kaprelian, Vera Mesmer, Joshua James), Gagel and Barry certainly know music. That said, it is no surprise that the two, who work under the name WAX LTD, recently chose to outfit their studio with a new 16-channel API 1608 console. Taming what had originally been an ungainly tangle of outboard gear, their 1608 provides the definitive API analog warmth and punch, in addition to the well-thought-out functionality WAX LTD was looking for. more

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, August 2010: When the Hamilton City Hall was slated for major renovations, the Council elected to replace their old conference system with something state-of-the-art that would meet the demands of the day.

As a bonus, the old IR assisted listening system for spectators received a fond farewell, replaced by a Sennheiser system of superior performance and reliability. more

SENNHEISER GOES GREEN AT OSHEAGA

MONTRÉAL, CANADA – AUGUST 2010: It’s debatable whether humanity will be done with fossil fuels in twenty years or in two hundred, but it’s inevitable that sooner or later that day will arrive. Of course, there’s no telling what kind of music will be popular then, but humankind’s affinity for the sounds that move both feet and souls guarantees that music – be it a new take on rock ‘n roll or something currently inconceivable – will continue to be an important part of daily life. And what will a concert look like in our sustainable future? Attendees at this summer’s Osheaga Music and Arts Festival in Montréal, Quebec had, perhaps, a glimpse of that future on the Green Stage, sponsored and realized in part by Sennheiser Canada’s energy-efficient K-array loudspeaker and subwoofer technology and the Innovason Eclipse all-in-one console and signal processor. The Sennheiser Green Stage leveraged both conventional and more
