Zhongshan 0760 Club gets Plus status

Close to Hong Kong and Macau, Zhongshan enjoys a thriving tourist economy and entertainment scene, with the 0760 Plus nightclub now its centre.

‘When we renovated 0760 club in 2016, we selected TR Audio to take care of the A/V installation,’ recalls Hong Libo, one of the club’s founders. ‘We were impressed by the service on that project, so they were an obvious contender when we were seeking to fit 0760 Plus. TR Audio General Manager, Huang Zhao, brings a decade of nightclub experience to the table, so while it is a relatively new company, it has  the right know-how. I also experienced great service and aftercare from owner Ben Huang, who was very hands-on with the project.’

Pitching in at Texas Live!

Endorsing the belief that everything in Texas has to be big, the US$250m Texas Live! offers dining, live music and other entertainment options on a mighty scale. Backed by the Texas Rangers and City of Arlington, among others, the opening of the 200,000sq-ft complex was delivered by L-Acoustics Kara and Kiva II systems in two of its primary performance spaces, networked via AVB and processed by the Lone Star State’s first installed P1 audio processor.

The performance venues include the Arlington Backyard 5,000-capacity outdoor event pavilion and the Live! Arena concert and festival space featuring a gourmet burger restaurant owned by Dallas Cowboys icon Troy Aikman. Both venues sport L-Acoustics systems specified and designed by Coherent Design, and installed and integrated by AVI Systems’ Dallas team.

Recording Beth Hart Live at the Royal Albert Hall

American singer, songwriter and musician Beth Hart has built a career on memorable, narrative song writing and passionate live performances for nearly 20 years. Her new album/DVD/Blu-Ray release, Live at the Royal Albert Hall, is a testament to this – leaving Sweetwater Studio Senior Producer/Engineer Mark Hornsby in no doubt that the recording had to be perfect.

‘Beth is a very emotional performer and it’s pretty epic to put her in a space like that,’ he says. ‘You have one shot when you’re trying to capture something like that, so you’ve got to make it count.’

Shure start for Hazel Iris’ Nine Sisters

The release of Hazel Iris’ first full-length album, Nine Sisters, was no minor online ad campaign or poorly-attended record company press office playback. Instead, the eccentric London-based storytelling singer-songwriter set up in London’s historic St Bartholomew-the-Great at Smithfield for an event that was as much more an arts festival as launch gig, with innovative artists from various genres on the bill.

The event was soundly supported by Shure UK, with KSM8, Beta52, SM137, SM81, KSM141, Beta98, SM57s and SM58 microphones and PSM300 in ear monitoring systems all playing a part in the proceedings.

Bohemian Rhapsody Wembley premiere

Giving Bohemian Rhapsody bio-pic its world premiere to 7,000 fans in the SSE Arena Wembley contained in inherent dilemma – Queen fans are well acquainted with the venue and the boom of its acoustics, and that was exactly the sound the producers needed for the live concert scenes.

As re-recording mixer for the soundtrack, Paul Massey went to considerable lengths using reverb and hints of slap-back to reproduce the authentic 1980s Queen concert experience. ‘But of course, when staging such a premiere in a room like Wembley using a huge 7:1 audio system from Britannia Row Productions, the last thing you want is added reverb and slap-back,’ says audio consultant, Colin Pink.
