Soundcraft Vi6 For Brian Eno’s Apollo 11 Live

Former Roxy Music member Brian Eno celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, by introducing the first of two live performances of his 1983 composition Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks in the IMAX Cinema at the Science Museum in London.

Mark Hornsby’s company Headtec were appointed by the Science Museum to provide the sound, and Icebreaker’s FOH sound engineer Alexander Bossew requisitioned a Soundcraft Vi6 digital console as his first choice.

“I specified this, because it is so easy to produce a warm sound without having to EQ like mad,? he said. “Also the few compressors that I used were working very discreetly.?

Scharff Weisberg Helps New York City Lites Create A Memorable 4th Of July With Legendary Fireboat

FireboatThe historic mingled with the spectacular on the 4th of July when Scharff Weisberg supported New York City Lites, which designed an innovative lighting show on the Hudson River for Duchess County Tourism.

This year marks the quadricentennial (Hudson 400) of the European founding of New York’s Hudson River Valley by Dutch explorer Henry Hudson. When Duchess County Tourism wanted something beyond fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July, it seized on the idea of devising a show around the John J. Harvey, one of the most powerful fireboats ever in service. Built in 1931 and now retired, although it was briefly reinstated on September 11, 2001, the John J. Harvey is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was recently part of the Great River Day Flotilla of vessels sailing upriver on the Hudson from the Statue of Liberty to Albany.
