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

Hollywood Bowl

Winner of 13 consecutive Pollstar Awards for Outstanding Outdoor Venue since 2004, Hollywood Bowl is the summer home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic and has been LA’s signature live-music venue for nearly a century.

In readiness for the 2017 concert season, the Bowl again furthered its pursuit of sonic excellence with the installation of new L-Acoustics loudspeakers and amplified controllers with LA Network Manager software supplied and installed by Rat Sound.

Minneapolis Convention Center

The Minneapolis Convention Center space and the wide range of events it hosts demand an extreme level of flexibility, including in its sound provision. Addressing this, a tight budget and complications inherent in any government job, Milwaukee-based Clearwing Productions recently providsed the venue with a large system centred on L-Acoustics Kara and Kiva.

‘While the system was specified specifically for the main auditorium, we knew from the beginning that pieces of the main system would be in a near-constant state of motion between the venue’s meeting rooms and ballrooms, in addition to the auditorium,’ says Clearwing’s Kerry Miller, who worked closely with the convention centre audio staff.

Luca Colombo

Seeking a ‘live audio feeling’ in his recording studio, Sanremo Orchestra guitarist Luca Colombo has installed an RCF EvoX 5 loudspeaker system.

‘I usually shape my sound in the studio on the Kemper Amp [guitar amp simulator], then test the guitar sound live, but I constantly realise that the perceived sound from the studio monitors is misleading – mostly because of the lack of bass frequencies,’ he explains. ‘That’s when I decided to try a number of small live sound systems...

Katherine Waterston in Alien:Covenant

Having successfully used the DPA’s d:screet Miniature Microphones during the filming of Mad Max: Fury Road, Sound Mixer Ben Osmo adopted for his next major film project – recording the audio for Ridley Scott’s 2017 sci-fi blockbuster, Alien:Covenant.

‘This film made unusual demands on the sound, costume and props departments because the cast not only had to wear radio mic transmitters but also an in-ear/comms set-up, which was part of the storyline,’ he explains. ‘We were predominantly using DPA for location sound recording, so we chose d:screet 4060 and 4061 lavalier mics, which we hid in clothing and spacesuits. We also used d:fine Headset Microphones on cast members as props – for example as talkback mics in space helmets.’

RTVS Studio 2

Radio and Television of Slovakia (RTVS) recently completed the renovation of its Studio 2 control room, including the installation of a Genelec 5.1 surround loudspeaker system. The Bratislava-based facility has also updated a number of editing rooms, studios and OB vehicles with Genelec monitoring.

The installations are the latest chapter in a long relationship between Genelec and regional partner Centron Slovakia. Over the course of 20 years, the two companies have provided bespoke solutions for recording, broadcasting and postproduction facilities across Slovakia.
