K-array Helps Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall Ring in New Year with Exquisite Sound, Compact Footprint

k-array

New York, NY– 15 March 2010: When Lou Mannarino of New York-based L&M Sound and Light was asked to provide sound on New Year’s Eve at one of New York City’s most prominent venues–Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall–he was faced with a daunting challenge: to provide impeccably transparent sound in a visually discreet footprint. The New Year’s Eve celebration, featuring the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, was to be broadcast on live television and there was just one chance to get it right.

Mannarino—a veteran in the live sound business with over 30 years experience—has always been two steps ahead of the pack with a keen eye for innovation. To meet the needs of this very special engagement, he looked to Italian loudspeaker manufacturer K-array’s revolutionary speaker technology, which delivers exquisite sound within an uncharacteristically small footprint.

Nine-time Grammy winner and superlative vocalist and songwriter Norah Jones is currently on a promo tour in support of her fourth studio album, The Fall, with dates at the David Letterman Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, among many others. The Fall is a rock ‘n roll departure from Jones’ earlier, more jazz-inspired work, and gets its organic, gritty sound from collaborators, most notably producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Modest Mouse). But Jones’ ethereal voice has not changed, and it is still easy to get wondrously lost in the space between each spellbinding breath. To convey that indescribable quality, FOH engineer Brett Dicus continues to rely on Neumann’s incomparable live vocal microphone technology, with a backline of Sennheiser wired microphones and wireless personal monitors to keep the band sounding their best. more
