Studer Vista 5 Console Provides Surround Sound For Fela! At the National

When the Broadway blockbuster Fela! transferred to London’s National Theatre on the South Bank this month, Tony Award-winning sound designer Robert Kaplowitz took advantage of the auditorium’s vastly different form to rework his original soundscape, with a Studer Vista 5 digital console at the control centre.

Portraying the life of Nigerian political activist and musician Fela Kuti had required the audience to be immersed in a soundfield as part of the adventurous production–but at the National he decided to go a step further.

The opportunity came when the National’s Sound Operations Manager, Borneo Brown, and assistants, Matt Berry and Ed Ferguson, requisitioned a 42-fader, custom-configured Studer Vista 5 digital console for the production.

“I had hoped to have used this desk for the Broadway production–but for various reasons it didn’t happen,? said Kaplowitz. Of the advanced feature set offered by the Vista 5, the highlight–as far as more

Martin Audio Fills Comic Entertainments With Glee

––Pacific Sound & Light’s Challenging Flagship Venue Installation––

Having provided technical infrastructures for three other Glee Clubs around the country, Paul Duffy’s Pacific Sound & Light faced their toughest challenge yet masterminding the new flagship venue, set in a former Jongleurs in Nottingham’s historic British Waterways Building.

Owned by Mark Tughan’s Comic Enterprises, these hybrid theatres host a diverse program of entertainment––from comedy to eclectic folk and emerging and established artists. But it was the enormous width and narrow depth of Nottingham’s main theater, complemented by a ‘letterbox’ balcony with raked seating and difficult sightlines that provided the real challenge. Pacific needed to source a sound system that would give even venue coverage across the frequency range — whoever was performing on stage. Having provided problem-free Martin Audio solutions to Comic Enterprises for the past ten years, the British manufacturer again became Paul Duffy’s first port of call.

Jünger Audio’s Small MIX4 Is Beautiful For Zurich Radio Station Radio 1 AG

Radio 1 AG has invested in seven Jünger Audio MIX4 compact mixers to record telephone interviews and other source material for its programming.

This privately owned commercial radio station broadcasts a mixture of news, music, phone-ins and special reports to local audiences in Zurich, Switzerland.

“We don’t have a large studio set-up, so we were looking for compact mixers that were truly versatile,? says Sandro Huber, Head of Technology and IT. “The Jünger Audio MIX4 is ideal for our purposes because it offers a large number of features for its small size.

The idea was very innovative,? notes Studio 108 director, Jack Hartmann. “The first component is a TV spot that sets up a story about a child facing a specific challenge – such as dealing with the loss of a parent, abuse, etc. Then, at the end of the TV spot the viewer is prompted to go to childsavers.org to see the rest of the story. The long-form website spot opens with the TV commercial, and then continues – in the same documentary style – following the child’s more

wish for the power to transform. Even if it’s a wish granted only once, the pull toward changing into something other than yourself, even for a short while, is powerful.

Artistic Image (AI) captured that fantasy, transforming it into a magnetic concept for a graphic-driven package of openings, teasers, and bumpers about a boy with the ability to morph into alien creatures. The package was created to promote Cartoon Network Latin America’s broadcast special event, showcasing several episodes of their animated series, ‘Ben 10.’

The hybrid production, design and post company’s concept for the package takes the show’s essence – the transformative power of the central character – and applies it to the logo, thereby zoning in on what viewers already love about the concept and creating a natural link between it and the universe Artistic Image created. more
