Hrafn: Conversations with Odin

Presented by DarkLab, the team behind the Museum of Old and New Art’s winter solstice festival Dark Mofo, Project X is a programme of contemporary artworks and events designed to bring visitors to Tasmania’s Huon Valley after the bushfires suffered during 2018–2019.

The festival takes place annually, and is one of the world’s more unusual winter festivals, featuring big-ticket music shows and large-scale public art. During Dark Mofo in 2019, DarkLab hosted a soundwork by composer and sound recordist Chris Watson called Hrafn: Conversations with Odin. Co-presented by The Wired Lab, it played out through a multichannel sound installation based on L-Acoustics Syva co-linear source elements as day became night.

Gold tracking room with the 5088 mixing console

Opened in 2015 by engineer Neeraj Khajanchi, NK Sound Tokyo has recently completed an extensive update to its main studio which includes the addition of an 80-input Rupert Neve Designs 5088 console – the largest 5088 sold to date, anywhere in the world.

The console was provided by Rupert Neve’s long-time Japanese distributor Hook-Up Inc, and is loaded with 48 channels of Shelford 5052 Mic Preamp/Inductor EQ modules.

Cirque de Soleil’s R.U.N

Cirque de Soleil’s latest production R.U.N continues to flip theatregoers expectations at the Luxor in Las Vegas. A live-action graphic novel, R.U.N delivers back-alley fistfights, bike jumps, car chases, high falls and body burns, the sounds of which are captured though the inventive use of Point Source GO-8WM microphones.

Shifting from the ethereal acrobatics that has defined Cirque, R.U.N is a stunt show with special effects that pulse with physicality you can hear and feel– a ground-and-body-breaking spectacle, forged from the sonic vision of globally renowned sound designer Jonathan Deans.

Larrabee Studios

Among the most in demand mixing engineers, Manny Marroquin has worked artists from Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys, to Eminem, The Rolling Stones and Kanye West. Based at Larrabee Studios in LA. Larrabee Studios has been a leader in the Los Angeles music industry for over 40 years, during that time hosting many of the leading artists from yesterday and today.

Marroquin’s recording facility has been a Solid State Logic studio from day one – its most recent acquisition being a second SSL Duality console.

NRK OB24

Lithuania system integrator TVC has completed the construction of an OB Trailer for Norwegian public broadcaster NRK, based around a Lawo IP audio infrastructure, including an mc²56 mixing console, A__UHD Processing Engine and Virtual Studio Manager (VSM) control.

The new vehicle with advanced equipment is an investment for NRK’s ambitious future productions and is part of a technological standardisation within the broadcast production facilities and mobile studios as NRK already uses mc² consoles in their concert hall and for news programme productions.
