Ice Rink Transforms Into 7.1 Cinema

Date: 08/26/2015

The Telluride Film Festival in Colorado has always been aimed at true cineasts, but the annual event takes over a variety of spaces that weren’t created with movies in mind. Take the showpiece Werner Herzog Theatre—during the rest of the year, it’s a typical ice-skating rink, but for four days next month, it will be transformed into a 650-seat theater with a complete Meyer Sound 7.1 cinema sound system.  MORE

Inside The Audio Of Quakecon

Date: 08/20/2015

With a following as fervid as any band’s (and in most cases, far larger), the Quake videogame franchise has been the focus of QuakeCon for nearly 20 years. While the first event was a gathering of 30 first-person shooter game fans in Garland, TX, today the annual, four-day event attracts more than 9,000 people to Dallas every summer. For this year’s convocation at the Hotel Anatole, Alford Media Services provided major audio support for the convention, straddling the line between corporate presentations and rock shows.  MORE

Caesar’S Goes All In On Martin Audio

Date: 08/19/2015

Yorkville Rides Jersey Surf

Date: 08/18/2015

Founded in 1990, Jersey Surf has become an institution in New Jersey, drawing marching band members from numerous high schools around the region together to create a serious, competitive drum corps. While the unit has a big sound, some of the venues it plays—often including NFL stadiums—are even bigger, so the group recently opted to build a system based around Yorkville Sound’s Paraline Series cabinets, aiming to find ways to tailor the expandable system to its highly specialized application.  MORE

RF Venue Fills The Bill For Will

Date: 08/17/2015

New York City’s Central Park is known for a lot of things; one of the most positive is the long-running Free Shakespeare in the Park series, held by the Public Theater. Now in its 53rd year, the series brings famous actors and the works of William Shakespeare to the 1,800-seat outdoor Delacorte Theater; the current offering—Cymbeline, featuring Lily Rabe and Hamish Linklater—runs through August 23. Ensuring everyone catches every word is a considerable audio system from theater audio specialists Masque Sound. “We have to load an entire Broadway quality sound system into a natural park,” said Matthew Bell, Assistant Audio Supervisor. “There are racoons, birds, and rain, and all those have to be taken into consideration.”  MORE

Promoting Safe Habits: Festival Industry Leaders Address Health And Safety Challenges At The Modern Festival

Date: 08/13/2015

No matter the size of a festival, producers look at their multi-day events as a community—and with anywhere between 5,000 and into the 100,000s of people flocking to a festival site daily, organizers need to plan for the same risks you would find in a town or neighborhood of the same size. However, with these festival communities packed into a smaller outdoor setting, producers are able to hone in on more specific safety and health risks that come with the festival territory, ranging from crowd control, overheating and dehydration, to drug and alcohol consumption, and prepare ahead of time for these and other potential risks.  MORE

That tradition continues inside the Music City Center, where Fan Fair X hosts autograph booths and three small performance stages.  MORE

Meeting The Challenge Of Red Rocks

Date: 08/12/2015

If you’re talking Americana, the Avett Brothers are always one of the first acts to get mentioned. Touring the country this summer, barnstorming through shows in places as varied as Brooklyn Bowl in New York and the Garden in Boston, the band has carried an audio rig from Winston Salem, NC-based Special Event Services that scales to meet the needs of each venue—and that ability was recently highlighted by three sold-out nights at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre.  MORE

Bose A Good Fit For Timberland

Date: 08/07/2015

While known for its boots and apparel, it only makes sense that Timberland would be well tied into music; after all, one of the biggest producers in the world based his name on the global lifestyle brand. But the connection runs deeper than that—at its New Hampshire HQ, Timberland hosts corporate events and the occasional musician who stops by for a visit and special performance. For those, the company keeps no less than five Bose Professional L1 portable line array systems on hand.  MORE
