Monolake Gig – Texture Manchester

Did you know that we recently provided a four point sound system for a live performance by the legendary Robert Henke, the creator of performance software ABLETON? The gig was on the 28th October 2017 at Texture in Manchester, a superb venue for cutting edge events.

Our system consisted of four of our Nova Acoustic EX600 columns, with deep bass provided by a cluster of four Nova E18 horn loaded subwoofers. We used two Linea Research 4 channel 44M20 power amplifiers to power the system, one amp to the bass cluster with independent speaker output to each EX600 column. This allowed Robert to manipulate sounds around the whole dance floor during the performance.

His set was mesmerising, the EX600’s provided really crisp detail, with a warm but strong impulses from the sub woofer stack.

One audience member posted this on Twitter after the gig

“Outstanding quadrophonic Monolake set from last night”

For Hollowsphere the event was a real success and we look forward to more events like this with Texture in the future.

Festival Sound and Lighting

It’s been a busy few months after a two successful festivals, Chorlton Arts Festival (in Chorlton, South Manchester) and The Barnaby Festival (in Macclesfield)

Due to the size of St Michaels church in Macclesfield we needed to deploy delay speakers down each wing of the church to ensure audience coverage. Lighting was minimal at Barnaby festival where at Chorlton Arts we could use more dynamic lighting and effects.

If you need sound, lighting and production services for your local festival, please contact us.

Here are a few pictures from the two above events.
