Starfield: Resound '08

Rutgers University Livingston Campus
Livingston, NJ
When organizers of the Christian rock concert "Resound '08" initially approached us, we guided these first-time presenters through the minefield of event productions. Held at Rutgers' University, "Starfield" required our complete package of options: staging technology (carefully designed to ensure the preservation of the gym floor as venue), sound, lighting and backline. We recommended bringing in a 600A generator to power the production and lighting system, which involved 40+ moving, conventional and L.E.D. fixtures. For sound, we went with Sennheiser wireless in-ear monitors and 20KW of our J60 5-way active F.O.H. system.

Look and see how one enthusiastic fan recorded his experience on YouTube.

School Musical

Louis Pasteur M.S. 67
Little Neck, NY
Our philosophy with all events is that attendees in the back rows should be able to hear the performance just as well as those in the front. To that end, for this middle school music concert, we designed our sound systems to distribute as well as amplify sound as evenly as possible. To further enhance the audio performance, we utilized the latest in wireless head-worn microphone technology (as seen in most Broadway Theaters) from leading manufacturers Sennheiser and Countryman. These head worn mics ensure the best quality sound whether or not the performers are directly facing towards the audience.
