PSI makes ‘massive contribution’ to Monster Mash and Samhain Live Halloween special

Irish technical production company PSI supplied Belfast's Monster Mash and Samhain Live Halloween special with sound, staging, lighting and rigging

Production Services Ireland (PSI) supplied Belfast City Council’s Monster Mash and Samhain Live Halloween special with lighting, video, rigging and staging.

Samhain Live’s managing director, Paul McKay commented that PSI ‘made a massive contribution’ to all the shows this year.

PSI acquired the Adamson Systems Engineering PA inventory in April when it became a certified reseller and rental partner. Monster Mash afforded PSI to deploy Adamson for the show.

Sound reinforcement for Monster Mash featured 24 Adamson S10 full-range cabinets and 12 S119 subwoofers, powered by Lab.gruppen PLM20K44 amplification. PSI supplied a mix of Robe, CLF Lighting and Showtec fixtures, together with an Avolites Tiger Touch II for control, as well as four Litec Flyintower 13-2000 towers and a 10m x 7m stage.

Meanwhile, both shows were filmed in Londonderry and ran simultaneously. PSI provided sound, lighting, video, rigging and staging for two stages at the Craft Village, a stage at Echo Echo Dance Theatre and a popup stage at Guildhall Square.

L-Acoustics, d&b audiotechnik and Turbosound PA systems were deployed by PSI for the live audiences, along with Midas, Roland and Allen & Heath mixing desks.

McKay, said: “It’s always a pleasure working with PSI. Their professionalism is second to none and they always deliver to the highest standard. PSI have made a massive contribution to all our shows this year including FleadhTV and Samhain Live and we look forward to working with them again to great success in the near future.”

PSI’s director, Sean Pagel, commented: “Having multiple full production shows on the same day presents certain challenges, but PSI has leaders with years of experience across the various departments of the business and very capable teams to back them up. We’re very happy with what the Adamson system gives us in terms of performance, and it was pleasing to see the Samhain Sessions run so smoothly – especially with the added pressure of the live broadcasts.”
