San Diego (October 19, 2007)–Celebrating 40 years since the “Summer of Love,” Adams Entertainment and Lyric Opera San Diego presented the world premiere of Love In: A Musical Celebration of 1967 in early September at the Birch North Park Theater in San Diego. The production used Yamaha consoles, studio monitors and amplifiers, and Nexo loudspeakers
Created by the producers of Primal Twang, which debuted to sold-out audiences at the Birch North Park Theatre in September 2006, Love In is a theatrical celebration of the music of 1967 featuring legendary guest artists and a spectacular psychedelic light show. As with Primal Twang, Adams Entertainment filmed the performances of Love In for commercial release.
Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. provided the majority of the audio equipment for the 5.1 house system, which consisted of a Yamaha DM2000 for front of house mixing, 20 Nexo GEO S805s, four Geo S 830s, three Geo S 1210s, one Geo S1230, and two PS8s speakers. Amps included eight Yamaha PC9501n’s, one PC6501n, and the new Yamaha T4n. Monitors were controlled by two Yamaha PM5D digital consoles, four Nexo PS10s speakers and four Yamaha PC9501n amps. The audio was distributed by an EtherSound network, providing a digital infrastructure from monitors to front of house for the live show and the recording of the show. The show was recorded using a second Yamaha DM2000, two of the new ADK Lyve Tracker recorders, and two Yamaha HS80M studio monitors.
“The Yamaha/Nexo system for Love In provided pristine 5.1 audio which perfectly conveyed the power and passion of classic ’60’s rock but with increased fidelity and nuance,” states Anthony Leigh Adams, producer/director, Love In. “It was a true flashback to the summer of love, but with better audio. Hats off to Yamaha and NEXO for helping us create musical magic for this exciting production.”
