Music & Arts Production Studio's Mike Wilson and ASP4816 console

With almost precognitive agility, Mike Willson has spent the past few years developing a business model that enables freelance producers/engineers autonomous access to his Music & Arts Production Studio in California whenever they like – effectively using the studio as their own space in a similar manner to the Airbnb model.

Music & Arts Production Studio (MAPS) is located on Fender Avenue in Fullerton, where it offers two studio spaces with a spacious lounge ‘that has accidentally become a very useful chamber’. Almost all of the equipment is from Wilson’s personal collection of the past ten years – ‘I try my best to fill the space with pieces of gear you wouldn’t find in every studio,’ he says.

Service at Tromsø’s Ishavskatedralen (Pic: Daniel Lilleeng)

The distinctive profile of the Tromsdalen Church (Ishavskatedralen, or Arctic Cathedral) is one of the most striking landmarks for the Norwegian city of Tromsø. But despite its iconic status – equally as a place of worship, tourist attraction and symbol of the city –it has suffered from poor sound for services and the many recitals and concerts it hosts for many years.

All that has now changed, with to the installation of an Alcons Audio LR7 pro-ribbon sound reinforcement system.

Expanded Quantum7 console at State Kremlin Palace FOH

Marking its 60th anniversary in 2022, the State Kremlin Palace is one of the most prestigious theatre and concert venues in the world. Accommodating almost 6,000, the its Big Hall has recently been equipped with latest generation DiGiCo mixing consoles.

Located inside the Moscow Kremlin, the palace is the geographic and historic centre of Moscow for both social and political gatherings, as well as home to the Kremlin Ballet Theatre. ‘The calibre of productions in the venue meant the reliability of the system was the number one requirement from the State Commission for the Development of the Russian Federation management team,’ says Alexandr Soloukhin, Head Projects at Aris, DiGiCo’s distributor for the Russian market.

Stage Tec Aurus platinum mixing in NEP's new MusicOne

The Dutch NEP Group subsidiary has commissioned the new MusicOne OB truck, specifically equipped for recording concerts and music events with a Stage Tec Aurus platinum mixing system at the heart of its audio.

As artists increasingly look to – and currently need to – livestream concerts, the Dutch market found itself lacking a music OB truck with sufficiently high performance standards. NEP has closed this gap with the MusicOne – a spacious 12m-long truck is equipped with a soundproof sound control room, a production suite that can be converted into a video control room, and a roof terrace that can be used for stand-ups with the event as a backdrop or as a chill-out area.

Great Hall with new L-Acoustics Kara

Known as Sakura Hall, the Kitakami Cultural Exchange Centre is a community hub in the Iwate Prefecture of Japan. Since opening in 2003, its small, medium and large halls have welcomed performances by national groups and local independent artists.

The centre also features rooms for arts and craft workshops, rehearsal rooms for ballet and dance, and a music room for musicians to practice after office hours.

With its original sound system no longer meeting the Great Hall’s current needs, Bestec Audio has installed a replacement from L-Acoustics.
