International news highlights from the world of live sound, recording, broadcast, postproduction and A/V
 

Festival de Radio France

With Yamaha’s flagship Rivage PM10 digital mixing console finding favour through the 2016 festival season, the Festival de Radio France used a PM10 to mix two weeks of wide-ranging jazz performances.

Taking place in Montpellier, Festival de Radio France features many different styles of music in venues throughout Montpellier. The 1,800-seat open air Amphithéâtre du Domaine d’O – managed by the city’s Department of Art and Culture – was the venue for the festival’s jazz programme, with all performances broadcast live on radio station France Musique.

DJ Tiesto at Verso

Once a single wine store, San Francisco’s PlumpJack Group has grown into a multi-faceted hospitality and lifestyle business that includes Verso, a premier event space and nightclub. Wanting a sound that would better major US nightclubs, PlumpJack found its answer in a system from Alcons Audio.

Located in a former printing works on San Francisco’s Mission Street, Verso is a high quality space designed to switch quickly and seamlessly from hosting events to a nightclub. Bradley S Katz of the city’s JK Sound had previously worked with PlumpJack on another venue, MatrixFillmore, and was asked to look at Verso as a result.

Sziget Festival

A key component of Capital Sound’s summer music festival schedule is the Sziget Organisation’s three major gatherings in Hungary. For several years, the company has serviced the back-to-back four-day Volt rock festival in Sopron, before trucking the equipment southeast from the Austrian border to Balaton Sound, which takes place on the beach of Zamárdi over five days.

Having established Martin Audio’s MLA system at these two festivals, in 2014 the organisers adopted the system for their flagship event – the Sziget Festival itself.

The Hive at Kew

From its debut at the UK Milan Expo 2015 pavilion, The Hive has relocated to London’s Kew Gardens, where its elaborate and soundtrack is again controlled by a hybrid system using live bees, and a TiMax SoundHub playback server and audio showcontroller.

The 17m-high abstract aluminium lattice structure that comprises the immersive art installation offers visitors a multisensory experience as it responds, with the help of TiMax, to the activity of bees in a beehive located behind the scenes at Kew. The object of the walk-in figurative beehive is to help highlight the significance and plight of bees in our foodchain and ecology.
