WIZARD OF OZ
Toronto is hosting the North American Premier of Andrew Lloyd Webber's stage
adaptation of this classic tale of enchantment. Sound Associates provided the
systems for Mick Potter's Sound Design and John Driscoll's Video. A Canadian
television audience helped select a new Dorothy. Digico SD7 digital consoles,
Sennheiser wireless and Mick Potter's renowned Meyer Melodie Line Arrays power
her "Over The Rainbow." Catalyst servers re-create the "Yellow Brick Road"
through new Panasonic 21KU and DS8500 digital projectors.
MATILDA, THE MUSICAL
Sound Designer Simon Baker with assistant Tony Smolinski have assembled a first
class sound system for this heralded arrival in the Shubert Theatre. Coupling
Digico SD7 and SD8 consoles, this West End import sound system of Meyer Melodies
, d&b T10's, E0's, and Martin Effect 3R surround boxes, will be under the
capable hands of A1 Ty Lackey. The video package designed by Laura Frank uses
Christie Digital 10K projectors, and powerhouse Catalyst servers.
HANDS ON A HARDBODY
Steve Kennedy and associate Walter Trarbach have put together another
spectacular sound package for the new musical comedy in the Brooks Atkinson
Theatre. David Horowitz will head the team mixing his Sennheiser Wireless
package on a Digico SD7 console into Steve's exclusive A/B speaker system.
Riedel communications coupled with Telex BTR800 full duplex wireless intercom
are the preference for the Kennedy team working around all those Texas Trucks.
Tony Award winning Sound Designer Rob Kaplowitz has re-configured his Broadway
sound design package for the road. Commanding the system, A1 Wes Snowden will
be travelling with a DigiDesign Venue audio console mixing Sennheiser
SK5212wireless microphones into d&b Q1 Line Arrays for mains and a d&b
E3 surround system. A half dozen Christie Digital and Panasonic DLP projectors
distribute the images from an array of Sony BRC300 robotic cameras through the
Catalyst media servers for video designer Peter Negrini.
Lightning strikes twice each year in the same place at Sound Associates as
Designers Randy Hansen and Erich Bechtel with associates Dave Schnirman and Bob
Hanlon assemble the systems for eight days of Fashion Shows in six venues with
as many as a dozen performances in one day. WHEW! With the shop "Bare as a Bone"
for two weeks the shop crews have a chance to clean and inventory what's left
and get ready for their return.
CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
Tony Award winning sound designer/composer Adam Cork is back with SAI associate
Chris Cronin to provide the soundscape for Scarlett Johansson's Maggie in this
steamy revival directed by Rob Ashford. Figure 53 QLab software plays back sound
effects and music via a Yamaha DM2000 and DME64N via an array of Meyer UPA-1P,
UPM-1P and MM-4 loudspeakers.
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
Emilia Clarke stars in this new production of Truman Capote's original novella
directed by Sean Mathias. Designed by the Chicago powerhouse team of Rob Milburn
and Michael Bodeen, the production will feature a surround of d&b E3
loudspeakers, a Yamaha Desk, and cleverly hidden DPA microphones to capture
Holly-Go-Lightly's magic. Production engineer Jens McVoy and associate Chris
Cronin round out the audio team, at the Cort Theatre.
