International news highlights from the worlds of live sound, sound recording, broadcasting, postproduction, sound installation, gaming and audiovisual
 

Mediapolis

A massive complex housing all production facilities for the seven television and 12 radio channels, Mediapolis is the new headquarters of Singapore broadcaster, Mediacorp.

At the centre of its expansive operational infrastructure, a Lawo VSM Broadcast Control and Monitoring System provides overall control. In addition to workflow management and time savings in programme preparation, VSM gives Mediacorp a high level of failure safety through its sophisticated redundancy.

Pro7ect 2017

With 20 songs written and recorded in pop-up studios in just four days, the 2017 Pro7ect songwriting retreat is regarding its fourth year as a significant point in its development and acceptance.

The highly creative environment of the Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton played host to producers Roni Size, Martin Glover (aka Youth), John Fortis, Andrew Levy, Stew Jackson, Ian Wallman and Jon Fletcher. Among those taking part were artists Billy Crabtree, Lily Dior, Eleni Drake and Georgia Train, part of the production and writing team Xenomania whose recent credits include the title track of the Kaiser Chiefs’ 2016 album, Stay Together.

Their Mortal Remains

An exclusive press briefing held in Abbey Road Studios’ famed Studio 2 gave a powerful taste of what is come when the Victoria and Albert Museum opens the door on The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains in May.

The retrospective follows the V&A’s recent David Bowie is... and You Say You Want a Revolution? shows, and marks the 50th anniversary of the band’s first album, The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and debut single ‘Arnold Layne’ will feature a new mix of ‘Comfortably Numb’ using Sennheiser’s Ambeo 3D technology and a full 18:3 loudspeaker set-up.

Brits 2017

For many, Chris Martin’s tribute retrospective ‘duet’ with George Michael at the Brits 2017 was the event’s highlight. For sound provider Britannia Row, it was another opportunity to demonstrate its technical prowess…

‘Chris Martin was singing live while George’s vocal was a recording of ‘A Different Corner’ – but not a studio recording,’ says Michael’s long-time sound engineer, Garry Bradshaw. ‘This was a live take from one of his concerts on the Symphonica tour For me, hearing his voice again really raised the hairs on the back of my neck.’

Park Theater auditorium

New to the Las Vegas Strip, the MGM Resorts International’s Park Theater is the city’s largest and most technologically advanced venue – bringing immersiveness to the theatre.

Holding 5,200 in its standard configuration – but able to accommodate 5,800 or even up to 6,300 people at peak capacity – the US$90M development is set adjacent to the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. Regardless of is configuration, every seat is intended to give ‘fifth row centre’ sound thanks, in large part, to an L-Acoustics K2 loudspeaker system specified by Montréal-based Scéno Plus and installed by the Las Vegas division of Solotech.
