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

Nilento Studios control room

Nilento Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden, is designed to adapt to a wide range of requirements, the latest example of this thinking being the addition of Atmos recording.

Founded by Lars Nilsson – a trumpet player who moved into production sound 30 years ago – the facility focusses on acoustic jazz and classical recording, as well as producing mixes from location recordings. Its studio space offers changeable acoustics, with the main live room able to be converted into four smaller rooms including two Iso booths, and allowing it to transform from a big-band environment into rooms suitable for choir, piano trio or a soloist.

DotA in Singapore

Staged at the Singapore Indoor Stadium and considered one of eSports largest events, the recent Defense of the Ancients 2 live world championship was hosted by the game’s developer. Calling on d&b Soundscape for an immersive audience experience, Aural Fixation owner Jason Waggoner served as live sound designer and department lead.

The sound system primarily handles game sound, announcer commentary and video playback in the arena, as well as supporting live entertainment elements. While d&b has been part of the event for several years, Soundscape was used due to be used in 2021 but Covid-19 saw the event cancelled at the last minute – making 2022 was the first time the audience was able to experience its capabilities.

A recent sell-out UK tour – his first in five years – saw Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini supported by kit and crew from Clair Global, Eighth Day Sound and Brit Row Productions

The tour was handled by Clair Global Account Manager Andy Walker, with assistance from Brit Row’s Tom Brown. The team, based in Twickenham, facilitated the delivery of a d&b audiotechnik KSL PA system from Eighth Day Sound’s inventory, as well as Solid State Logic and Allen & Heath mixing desks, a host of outboard gear, touring personnel, operations and tour support.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats has embarked on a large-scale tour across Europe, following sell-out seasons at the London Palladium. Rather than touring traditional theatre venues, the tour takes in significantly larger arenas, which typically pose challenges for sound designers wanting to recreate the intricacies and detail of high-profile musical theatre productions.

With audio production supplied by Autograph Sound, sound designer Greg Pink turned to KV2 Audio loudspeakers: ‘The system looks ridiculously small in the venues, but the clarity and coverage are phenomenal. The dynamic range of the system allows us to run the system louder, if needed, without the risk of distortion.

Small Audio OBV

Serbia’s public broadcaster Radio Television of Serbia (Radio Televizija Srbije, Radio Beograd, RTS) recently added a new Lawo AoIP-equipped OB van to its fleet.

Headquartered in Belgrade, the compact, van-based Small Audio OBV (as RTS calls it) has been designed, built and equipped completely in Serbia by the executive team from TSE Beograd, a system integrator specialising in audio, video, multimedia, telecoms and control technology. AVC Group supplied the Lawo equipment.

The van was delivered in April 2021, has since been involved in several prominent productions.
