    The Linbury Studio theatre, housed within Covent Garden’s spectacular Royal Opera House, recently accommodated a 14-night run of SUM, a new opera based on David Eagleman’s best-selling book Forty Tales from the Afterlives. With a reduced capacity (from 400 to 150), the audience surrounded the orchestra pit, and was treated to a particularly intimate 90-minute piece, which encompassed 16 of Eagleman’s 40 takes on what the afterlife might have to offer, from the thought-provoking to the witty. Rather than utilize… View this post

    When FOH engineer Darwin Tillery goes out on a fly date for clients like Sheila E, New Edition, or Brian McKnight, he doesn’t worry about what console he might encounter at the gig. “I literally just carry mine with me,” he says. “I have the Allen & Heath R72 rack-mount console with the iDR48 MixRack. They both qualify as carry-ons, so I’m basically carrying a 48-channel digital console onto the plane.”   The compact iLive R72 is a work surface… View this post
