    Ever wonder how to cue an ensemble in the dark? Just grab a few 220-ohm resistors and some light-emitting diodes and you’re halfway there. Shenandoah University in Winchester, VA made a mark on innovation and ways to experience music as an audience member with a recent percussion ensemble performance of “Pika-Don” by American composer James Tenney. The piece is a musical representation of a percussion ensemble paired with prerecorded voiceover tracks of writings taken from the scientists at the first… View this post

    Swedish rock band Takida has embarked on its sellout spring tour of Scandinavia, The Burning Heart, with Midas PRO2 consoles being used for FOH and monitors. Leading Scandinavian hire company Starlight, which purchased the PRO2s from Midas’ Swedish distributor Intersonic, is the first company in the region to use a dual system on a tour. “Overall the system is very stable, and I really feel I can fully trust it,” says monitor engineer Robert Egnelius. “The POPulation and MCA groups… View this post

    “If you want to make a million in audio,” Ryan Jenkins asks, “you know how you do it? Start with two million.

    On typical Sunday mornings, we have about 35 minutes to clear the traditional service off the stage, set up the contemporary service, and then have the band do a final run-through of the music package.  We’ve worked out a pretty smooth approach to these transitions - most weeks it works well, with the sound check/rehearsal complete by about 15 minutes ahead of the start of the contemporary service.
