Carsey’s Grand Day Out

A shared and recurring dream of playing piano outdoors to honour nature’s most beautiful spaces is the inspiration behind US singer-songwriter Brenda Carsey’s musical and life partner Will Munroe’s recent recording adventure – transporting an acoustic baby grand to Arizona’s Moran Point to make a recording and accompanying video.

To take care of the audio, they brought Tascam’s flagship recorder, the DR-701D, for single-shooter video production, along with four Tascam TM-90BM boundary microphones.

Moran Point offers a stunning vista of the Grand Canyon – the backdrop of their dreams…

Weiwuying Arts Center

Sited on the northeast corner of Kaohsiung’s Weiwuying Metropolitan Park, the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts – or Weiwuying – comprises the Recital Hall, Concert Hall, Playhouse, and Opera House that, together with an outdoor amphitheatre, are able to host almost any performing art imaginable. For the four indoor venues, Theateradvies bv of Amsterdam, working with Director Keh-Hua Lin of Taiwan-based Yitai Consulting, designed sound systems based on Renkus-Heinz digitally steered line array loudspeakers.

IX Technology Ltd installed the systems: ‘We’ve installed Renkus-Heinz loudspeakers in theatres in Taiwan for many years with remarkable results,’ notes Sam Chang. ‘Renkus-Heinz digital beam-steering technology enabled us to address the complicated requirements of this project.’

Making its public debut at a New Year´s Eve concert in 2018, the Amadeus Active Acoustics System in the Great Hall of the Congress Center Suhl (CCS), Germany, has dramatically improved the experience of the up to 2,352 audience, providing a very short reverberation time for concerts and other occasions.

Opened in 1873 as a grand Victorian public gesture, ‘the people’s Palace’, Alexandra Palace has been marked by fires, restoration, substantial war-time damage, charitable rescue, and many political sagas. After 80 years of slumber and two years of careful restoration, however, Alexandra Palace Theatre has reopened following several years of restoration.

As part of the process, a complete technical infrastructure had to be installed, including a substantial L-Acoustics Kara PA system and DiGiCo SD12 mixing console that brings a fitting quality of sound to the restored space.

Genelec adds finishing touch to Oulu’s Basso Club

The most populous city in northern Finland with more 200,000 residents; Oulu is also larger than any other northern city with the exception of Murmansk in Russia. Oulu recently saw the opening of Basso Club, a 430-capacity venue that is set to stand out from the crowd, not least thanks to its choice of sound system – which features Genelec active loudspeakers, including the S360 and 7382 high-SPL models.

The club’s young owners, brothers Teemu and Miikka Sulkala, were determined that it would break the mould: ‘We didn’t want to do anything that our competitors or other nightclubs have already done so many times,’ Teemu Sulkala says. ‘We wanted something totally new.’
