    Theatrical productions have been staged in many forms and venues over the years, ranging from traditional proscenium arch theatres to outdoor Shakespearian-inclined stages, from theaters-in-the-round to “black boxes,” and plenty more. But I recently checked out something altogether different, a new avant-garde opera production entitled Invisible Cities that was staged inside the general transit area of Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. The show, which ran twice nightly for about a month late last year, was the result of a… View this story

    Imagine a wildly successful blue-eyed soul group of the 1960s, pushing back against the British Invasion with many chart-topping hits including “Good Lovin’” and “Groovin.” They became household names thanks to Top 40 radio, The Ed Sullivan Show, and the power of television. They performed to sold-out audiences across North America and Europe, and would eventually be inducted into the Songwriters Hall and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Yet they were unable to escape the disillusionment that came… View this story

    By now, we should all be well aware of the fact that our production audio “RFscape” is changing dramatically due to the introduction of digital consumer devices within the wireless microphone spectrum. The next two years will separate the women from the girls and the men from the boys when it comes to wireless audio operation in the United States. It’s becoming more and more difficult to operate multiple wireless systems, including microphones, in-ear monitors, IFB, and intercoms, on events… View this story

    One of the topics that I’ve seen poorly understood, and even deliberately used to mislead people, is the issue of wireless microphone transmitter power and the effects said power has on system performance. Let’s start with the basics: all things being equal, more transmitter power = more range for the system, but not in a linear way. In broad terms, when discussing analog wireless systems, the receiver wants to see a signal from a transmitter (carrier) that is at least… View this story

    The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center of Memphis opened its doors earlier this year, complete with a 300-seat theater, fitness center, church, meeting rooms, classroom facilities, and a unique “Challenge Center” designed to promote teamwork and collaboration among young people of diverse backgrounds. A facility that services multiple activities simultaneously, the new venue required an intelligent wireless microphone system that could support 34 channels of audio seamlessly across a number of different rooms, and under this… View this story

    Sennheiser has announced that it has recently filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in light of the pending spectrum auction scheduled to take place in 2014. The government auction, which jeopardizes the future use of wireless microphones and monitors operating in the 600 MHz range, will force many U.S. based content creators — including live production, broadcast, and film professionals — to attempt to stage their shows using little more than half of the currently available UHF spectrum.… View this story

    Bridgestone Arena in Nashville was host to the 2013 CMA Awards, known as “Country Music’s Biggest Night,” with a live ABC telecast and a venue packed with fans. Top artists Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley co-hosted the awards, which honored both youth and experience with a three-hour string of hit songs and unusual collaborations. With the show’s fast pace and multiple stages, most vocal mics and in-ear monitor systems were wireless, provided by ATK Audiotek. Using an artist-friendly approach, performers… View this story
