New York (March 3, 2009)–On Monday, March 9, from 6:00 to 8:00PM, the AES New York Section will host a behind-the-scenes tour of Le Poisson Rouge, a “21st Century multimedia art cabaret,” at 158 Bleecker St. WSDG, Masque Sound, Meyer Sound and club principals will share design and tech details of the facility.
Since opening in September, 2008, the club has presented such artists as Lou Reed, They Might Be Giants, John Zorn, Ronnie Spector and, Monteverdi’s opera The Coronation of Poppea.
Walters-Storyk Design Group project manager Joshua Morris and consultant David Kotch will describe key design elements such as multiple stage and audience configurations, and special acoustic treatments.
Masque Sound co-principal Geoff Shearing and consultant David Kotch will detail the technology selection and installation of the sound system. The system is based on self-powered loudspeakers and digital signal processing by Meyer Sound supplemented by equipment from Digidesign, Yamaha, and Shure, making LPR reportedly the first club to offer surround sound. Meyer Sound Northeast regional sales manager Sandy Macdonald and tech support guru Joe Caruso will detail the technical elements of the Meyer Sound system.
A demonstration by LPR FOH engineer Richie Clarke will illustrate how the system is used for recording as well as live performance applications. Club co-principal David Handler will discuss the creative principles that led he and partner Justin Kantor to the decision to create this venue.
At 8PM, the meeting will adjourn to the (on site) LPR lounge where attendees may regroup for networking.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include company/school, phone contact and AES membership if applicable. Admission is free, food and beverage service is available.
Le Poisson Rouge is located at 158 Bleecker St. between Sullivan and Thompson Streets.
