Last Night of the Electrics

Almost 50 years on stage and opening Live Aid in 1985, Status Quo are an inescapable part of rock history. They are also longstanding supporters of charities including The Prince’s Trust, the British Heart Foundation and Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy.

In early 2016 the band announced their final electric tour, The Last Night of the Electrics, calling on Capital Sound for an Outline GTO C-12 rig for the main FOH rig.

Sawaguchi and Surround

Highly-regarded in Japan’s discerning music recording world, Mick Sawaguchi has a history of pioneering new techniques, and has been a strong advocate of surround over many years. In 2014, his recordings have moved to 9.1-channel surround – the configuration advocated as ideal for music by Auro 3D.

Tellingly, Morten Lindberg from 2L, Daniel Shores from Sono Luminus and Sawaguchi from Unamas are all users of Merging’s Pyramix 10, with Horus and Hapi networked audio interfaces.

Community has Enduring Memories of China

Staged for world leaders alongside the China G20 Summit and directed by Zhang Yimou, the public debut of Enduring Memories of Hangzhou took place at the West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province where it retained much original programme content and added a new audio system.

A cultural fusion of East and West, the production features a symphony orchestra and gala on water, and is a unique outdoor concert in a natural setting. Through a significant feat of engineering, the stage platform lies centimetres below the West Lake’s surface. To the audience, the actors appear to be performing on the surface of the water, which also creates a reflection of the performance and lighting.
