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

Cain’s Ballroom

Looking to replace audio consoles at the historic Cain’s Ballroom music venue in Tulsa, Oklahoma, sound engineer Jeremy Grodhaus sought a platform that would serve both prevailing and future needs. With a variety of corporate and non-music, as well as live music to consider, the new console had to be flexible. ‘We get a lot of guest engineers of various different experience levels, so the console has to be easy to walk up to and start mixing.’

Grodhaus compared Allen & Heath’s platform to those of other manufacturers but found nothing to match dLive’s value and workflow. ‘I hadn’t heard a bad thing about dLive, and I appreciated that the company was continuously updating firmware with new features,’ he says.

Unique Henan: Land of Drama

Occupying more than 100 acres in Zhengzhou and welcoming almost 10,000 visitors each day, Unique Henan: Land of Drama is described as a self-guided maze comprising 56 courtyards, 21 theatres and the largest immersive theatre complex in the world. It tells the 5,000-year history of Chinese civilisation around the Henan region using multi-media and immersive live theatre involving more than 800 performers.

Many elements of the main and the many stand-alone sound systems are built on Audinate Dante audio networks managed and monitored using Dante Domain Manager.

Amnesia

Perhaps Ibiza’s most iconic club, Amnesia opened in 1974 to become home to some of the best-known electronic music artists from around the world. After lying dormant for two years, the venue opened to a packed-out night in late May, which ran for 18 hours. Amnesia favourites such as Mar-T and Jamie Jones were in attendance, as were the club’s famed dancers, decked out in shiny metallic gear.

The night was made more special by the arrival of a new KV2 Audio sound system in the Main Room – a much-anticipated follow up to a KV2 system installed in the Terrace in 2019. The brief was simple – to deliver the same audio experience in the club’s Main Room as the Terrace.

Developed specifically for, and installed by, Amadeus at the Théâtre de l’Archevêché in Aix-en-Provence in Southern France, a system of 35 microphones processed by Holophonix and more than 50 loudspeakers were used for the live orchestra, choir and stage performers for Mozart’s Idomeneo during the annual summer Aix-en-Provence Festival of Opera.

Musical director and conductor of the Pygmalion Orchestra and Choir, Raphaël Pichon, had approached Amadeus directly to design and implement an audio technology system combining active acoustics and sound spatialisation for the performance.

Jiangxi's newly opened Wunvzhou Resort

Located in the Chinese province of Jiangxi, the newly opened Wunvzhou Resort offers bothy a tourist destination and a cultural centre, and includes a range of hotels, restaurants, shops and attractions, all themed on the cultural achievements of China’s Hui Muslim ethnoreligious group.

Before the resort’s official opening in July, Chinese A/V solutions provider EZPro was assigned the task of supplying and installing the audio system for the resort’s regular large-scale live performances of Encounter with Wuyuan – performed on a floating stage – in a 3,000-seat outdoor arena.
