O2 Academy Glasgow

Adlib’s installation team has completed updating the sound system at the Academy Music Group’s 2,550-capacity O2 Academy Glasgow in Scotland using L-Acoustics and DiGiCo.

Led by John Hughes and Roger Kirby, Adlib collaborated closely with Jeff Woodford, applications engineer (installations) and Sergey Becker applications engineer (touring) from L-Acoustics to provide a careful match for the venue’s requirements. They worked with Academy Music Group Divisional Manager (North), Steve Hoyland.

Molécule finds new space

Electronic music producer Romain Delahaye (aka Molécule) specialises in music created entirely in-situ. Behind this quest lies a clear and challenging goal: to take electronic music into a new sound dimension. All the sounds on his latest album, -22.7° C, were recorded during a five-week stay in a small fishing village in Greenland. Now he has taken on the technical challenge of transposing the sounds of these harsh environments to live mix concerts.

For the audience, it might mean presenting the show in an igloo at temperatures below zero to recreate the album’s recording conditions, or else in complete darkness to sharpen their sense of hearing. On the technical side, he has adopted L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology to play his work in detail – and fully spatialised.
