    The Who’s 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia—which sets the tale of teen Jimmy Cooper amidst the global sociocultural upheaval and psychological angst of the times and the rivalry between Britain’s mods and rockers—has been reprised in a multimedia display on the band’s latest outing. The 37 date tour, which began in November and runs through the end of February, celebrates the four-decade anniversary of the album’s release and marks the band’s first major North American tour in four years. The Quadrophenia… View this post

    Motorized winches. Lift machines. Line shaft winches. Cable drum winches. Whatever you want to call them, they’re everywhere these days, with more coming. To ride the wave, however, a lot more understanding has to be brought on board. (Get it? Wave…board?) Winches that are designed to lift scenery, lighting or other heavy stuff is what we’re talking about. Please don’t confuse them with machines used for opening and closing curtains on traveler tracks. They are a whole different animal and… View this post

    Founded in the early 80’s, Elio e Le Storie Tese (which loosely translates to “Elio and the Tense Situations”) is an Italian pop/rock band that evolved from the underground Zappa-esque “Rock demenziale” scene of the late 70’s. The band’s music is a blend of different genres, where cheeky and often insolent lyrics contrast sharply with complex musical arrangements. Claudio Scavazza, long-time PA technician for Elio, worked with audio rental company Sonique on the systems approach for the band’s latest tour,… View this post

    The idea of setting up a complicated audio system every day, in constantly changing venues and in the time limitations of a few hours is daunting, to say the least. Yet it’s the inevitable reality of touring sound. Thousands of pounds of hardware, miles of cable and hundreds of connections are required for system operation. All of this must be done in a timely manner, to allow for the “black art” of tuning the rig and mixing the music. Multipin… View this post
