Adebisi Shank - Thunder
I fucking love this band. This new song is ace.
Please come tour the UK!!!
Todays adventure involved myself and my Norwich Arts Centre colleagues going to PLASA 2012 at Earls Court in London. Alex my right hand sound engineer and technican and Scottie my LD and “Events manager”.
It was a LED fueled haze of techs looking and touching knobs, faders, screens and each others beards and my main objective was to play with sound boards.
I got to try out the new Yamaha CL series (which are so much better than I anticipated), pushed some faders on a Sound Craft Vi1, also as good as everyone says they are. Used a Midas Pro2. Not my cup of tea, sorry but It was too clunky and slow. (again prob me). And saw what the Allen and Heath GLD and ilive was like. Amazing for the price.
We talked shop and pretended we had lots of money. Played with lots of lights and desks. I also got to play with the Avolites media desk that ran the LED screens in the Olympic Staduim, which was awesome.
I now have tired legs and my eyes hurt from all the immense lighting.
All in all a productive and awesomely geeky day.
Here are some pictures. Scroll left and enjoy.
no picture. I was having too much fun.
On tuesday I got to help setup an awesome sound installation.
It was in an old Mc Donalds on Westlegate, Norwich.
Everything had been stripped out about 15 years ago and it left this huge cave-like concrete bunker. It sound mad, like a 4 sec reverb on all the time.
It was all part of The Neutrinos - ‘Butcher of Common Sense’ performance.
The night was going to have bands and sound work throughout this whole building.
Above is a few picture of the space.
