It’s only fitting that Coemar Infinity Wash XL fixtures are playing a key role in “Star Wars: In Concert,” a new touring production based on George Lucas’s infinitely entertaining “Star Wars” franchise. Show Director and designer Steve Cohen is deploying 42 Infinitys as the main wash lights for the show’s 86-piece symphony orchestra, according to Cohen’s associate production designer, Seth Jackson.

A unique multimedia event featuring music from all six of John Williams’s “Star Wars” scores, “Star Wars: In Concert” began its worldwide tour October 1 in Anaheim, California. It features a full symphony orchestra and choir accompanied by a montage of specially-edited footage to fit each theme. The montage is displayed on a three-story tall, HD LED screen and narrated by Anthony Daniels, the actor who portrayed C-3PO in all of the “Star Wars” films. Original movie more

Remote Recording uses Fairlight’s New Xynergi to Record and Edit the 2009 Latin Grammys

xynergi-workstation-w_sidecarsmall.jpg

Karen Brinton, President of Remote Recording, and her audio recording team chose Fairlight’s Xynergi to record the 2009 Latin Grammys, which took place in Las Vegas in November at Mandalay Bay.

Peter Gary, Engineer in Charge, became interested in the Xynergi after he was introduced to the system by New York-based Dale Pro Audio, which is Fairight’s exclusive dealer for northeast USA.

Gary explains: “The flexibility of the Xynergi system is really incredible. We were able to record 128 channels along with HD/SDI video for hours on end with absolutely no issues. While in record, the system was also able to backup the previous sound check (all 128 tracks plus video) onto an external hard drive. This negates any transfer time after the show, saving the clients money and having the media ready to post on any DAW system immediately.?

DANLEY STEPS UP TO THE PLATE AT TURNER FIELD

ATLANTA, GEORGIA: Poised for a future playoff berth with a hopeful mixture of youth and experience, the Atlanta Braves finished the 2009 season with a respectable record and much to look forward to. But for Turner Field, built originally for the 1996 Olympics and the club’s home ever since, 2009 marked the transition from possession of a dated sound system to possession of arguably the best system in major league baseball. Assailed by the elements, the old loudspeakers were showing signs of age, replaced by over four-hundred Danley loudspeakers with full weatherproofing, as well as customized rigging and coverage patterns to fit perfectly in the old speakers’ places. Not only did Danley deliver extensive customization, it did so within an extremely short timeframe.

The original equipment had been in place for thirteen years and the loudspeakers were beginning to deteriorate. The Braves more

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Blackbird Studio in Nashville houses one of the finest collections of recording equipment anywhere, including an impressive assortment of API analog mixing consoles.

The API console in Studio H joins two other API 1608 desks on the premises, according to Vance Powell, Blackbird’s Grammy-winning Chief Engineer. “We have three API 1608s, and two 16-channel expanders,” he explains. “One of the 1608s, with a 16-channel expander, is installed in Studio E. Another 1608 is in our new room, Studio H, an overdub/edit/mix suite. The 1608 is the centerpiece of that room for more

NEW YORK, NEW YORK: As one of the three major players in theater sound in the US, Sound Associates has provided sound reinforcement support and rentals to Broadway for over sixty years. At any given time, some twenty shows are using the company’s equipment, which includes over 4,000 channels of high-end Sennheiser wireless transmitters and receivers.

Sound Associates provides audio for shows that typically require between thirty and seventy channels of Sennheiser wireless. The company combines various lavalier microphones with Sennheiser SK 5212 body pack transmitters and Sennheiser’s new 3732 receivers. “Sennheiser has a more

Ashly Processors and Amps Help Boston Landmark Improve Sound, Save Energy, and Save the Planet

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS: Because it has retained the charm and luxury of its Roaring Twenties heritage, The Boston Park Plaza Hotel and Towers was inducted as a member of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America. In addition to its upscale accommodations, the Park Plaza is well-known for its six ballrooms: the very large Imperial and Plaza ballrooms, and the smaller (but still large by other’s standards) Georgian, Arlington, Berkeley, and Clarendon ballrooms. The Park Plaza is thus a prized location for meetings and parties of all kinds.

But behind the scenes, the hotel was growing increasingly frustrated with the audio system that served the ballrooms. A pair of seven-foot racks housed enough power amps to fry a dozen eggs while idling, and their opaque user controls flummoxed even the most audio-savvy hotel staff. At its root, there was no core control and no more

MULTI-TALENTED MUSICIAN AND PRODUCER FRANCIS DUNNERY RELIES ON THE METRIC HALO 2882 FOR ALL THINGS AUDIO

francis_dunnery.JPG

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK: Founder of 1980s English progressive rock sensation, It Bites, Francis Dunnery has maintained a busy schedule of solo work, production, and engineering in the nearly two decades since It Bites dissolved. Regular touring and recording with Robert Plant Lauryn Hill, Ian Brown, Carlos Santana and the creation of his own Aquarian Nation record label to “help support and maintain artistic integrity” have cemented Dunnery’s position as a venerated member of the musical intelligencia, in both the UK and America. His recently released album, “There’s a Whole New World Out There,” is a clever reworking of his favorite material from his early years. Like everything Dunnery has worked on in the past two years, the new album was recorded entirely through a Metric Halo 2882 converter and interface. Metric Halo has a sound that he has never been able to more

Symetrix Gear at the Heart of Manhattan’s Historic Henry Miller’s Theatre

henry_miller_theater.JPG

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – DECEMBER 2009: The historic Henry Miller’s Theatre in the heart of Manhattan has been invented and reinvented, purposed and repurposed, respected and disrespected. Built in 1918 for the famous actor/producer, it spent the first half of its life hosting critically-acclaimed shows such as “Journey’s End,” “Our Town” and “Witness for the Prosecution.” As it closes in on its 100th birthday, a new lease on life promises to carry the Henry Miller’s Theatre past the tumult of recent decades – when it was a club, and an “adult” theater by another name – and back into the limelight of Broadway’s celebrated productions. Keeping the facade and significant structural artifacts, Bank of America raised and rebuilt the theater at the same site, now below their new 57-story headquarters. Along with an elegant and LEED-certified structure, the 1,055-seat theater received a more
