Paul Brown Stadium Revamp

The Cincinnati Bengals have been taking on NFL rivals at the 65,515-seat Paul Brown Stadium for the past 20 years. Equally known for hosting performances from artists ranging from Kenny Chesney to Guns N’ Roses, PBS – as locals call it – believes that the sound delivered to its concourses and seating areas meet concert-level expectations at all levels, whether it be on game day or for special events.

To this end, a three-phase project to re-energise the stadium’s 20 year-old audio blueprint has been completed by Durrell Sports Audio Management and proved to a reduced crowd that watched the Bengals beat the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars.

Immersing Opera

When the Irish National Opera began production of Least Like the Other, it was to tour around Ireland throughout August 2020. Disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, its use of d&b Soundscape means that the show will go on but in a form unlike anything ever seen in Opera.

Least Like the Other, Searching for Rosemary Kennedy is an experimental music theatre piece by Brian Irvine and Netia Jones that traces events in the life of Rosemary – eldest daughter of Joe and Rose Kennedy, sister of JFK – through previously redacted archive materials recently pieced together. The show’s original operatic production featured 15 live musicians including, a string quartet, keyboards, wind, brass and an improvisational ensemble.

Bearsville Theater’s return

Originally intended by music impresario Albert Grossman as a showcase for his artists – among them Bob Dylan, The Band and Janis Joplin – the Bearsville Theater is equally historically important and well-known. Grossman founded the Bearsville creative complex in the 1970s in Woodstock, but died before the theatre’s completion leaving his widow Sally to see it through to completion in 1989.

‘Woodstock holds a special place in music history, starting with the Sound-Outs of the 1960s that inspired the Woodstock Festival,’ explains new owner Lizzie Vann. ‘It’s an amazing place, just two hours from New York City, and Albert really created the renown of today’s Woodstock by building the Bearsville complex here. We’re excited to bring Bearsville Theater into the musical heartbeat of the region again.’

Lisa Bella Donna and December’s Pentacle

Rather than layers of hooks or driving rhythms, Lisa Bella Donna’s electronic music compositions music explore deeper musical territory – and, using Solid State Logic’s SiX small-format mixer and an SSL 2+ interface, she has achieved a staggering level of sonic detail on her latest release, December’s Pentacle.

‘I basically wanted to push the SSL SiX and SSL 2+ to their limits and record a piece that is sonically rich and detailed,’ she explains. ‘I carefully tailored every aspect of this recording to my SSL set-up – there was no other outboard gear used on this record except for a few plug-ins. It was all tracked, mixed and mastered through the SiX and SSL 2+.’

SSL’s days of Future

Since making his mark on the Atlanta trap scene in 2010, rapper Future has released eight solo full-length albums, six collaborative albums, and numerous mixtapes and other projects.
