Spain became the very first testing ground for the new Adamson “Project Energia” beta launch. (Read more about Project Energia here.)
Adamson distributor Seesound, together with sound provider Fluge, arranged the first E15 system in Europe to premiere at the Low Cost Festival in Benidorm, Spain, which featured Mika and Ok GO!, among many others.
Now ready for a full tour, Fluge is putting the E15s to the test with Spanish metal band Los Marea.
The tour begins in Arnedo, in La Rioja province in the north of Spain, this coming November 5, and finishes the year on December 30 in Madrid, starting the new year with a date on January 14 in Zaragoza. Their tour then continues to Argentina, Chile and Colombia in February 2012.
El Grupo Industrias Orquestales, the parent company of Fluge, is a leader in the Spanish live production market and falls within the top 10 most important full service production companies in Europe. With over 20 years of experience, the group consists of about 150 employees, and their warehouse houses the world’s most up to date equipment as the inventory is in constant renewal, with latest offerings from many manufacturers, including Adamson.
In August 2008, Adamson appointed Seesound based in Barcelona as their exclusive distributor for Spain. Nacho Alberdi, the company’s CEO and his technical team have since steadily increased Adamson’s market share in Spain both in touring and in the Installations sectors.
“My admiration for Adamson systems began long ago,” Alberdi states. “After seeing Adamson build their own Kevlar drivers and growing their line with the launches of SpekTrix and Metrix series, I was sure that Adamson was the right choice. After three years of working together, we have positioned Adamson systems as a standard for all audio professionals in Spain wanting to move to the next level.
“When I listened to the first prototypes of what would later become the Project Energia, I knew right away that it would be a future bench-mark for big tours and the pro audio industry,” he continues. “This summer we listened to the beta system at the Low Cost Festival (Benidorm, Spain) with the British artist Mika performing, and our expectations were absolutely surpassed.”
