Paris, France (March 26, 2015)—Les Victoires de la Musique, France’s answer to the Grammy and Brit Awards, is broadcast live from the 5,000 seat Le Zénith arena in Paris. This year’s four-hour show featured performances by David Guetta, Brigitte, Jean Louis Aubert and Christine and the Queens, among others, all supported by a full orchestra. Helping make that happen, four SSL Live. L500 consoles were used at the FOH and monitor positions.
Supplied for the event by Parisian rental firm Silence, the L500s were fed inputs from 10 SSL stageboxes on stage. At the FOH position, Fabien Chanier handled the house mix for the performers, while Stephane Pelletier mixed the orchestra.
In addition to the two SSL Live consoles at FOH, two more L500s were stationed at the monitor position, where Alex Maggi mixed the bands’ monitors while Jerome Kalfon controlled the orchestra’s. Gilles Hugo, director of Silence, the Paris-based AV company that provided sound services for the show, served as the ceremony’s director of sound.
