    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

    Aura Restaurant & Lounge recently opened in Philadelphia and placed itself at the vanguard of the city’s hip and happening night life. Aura hired Pro Systems from nearby Cherry Hill, New Jersey to breathe fire into its sound reinforcement system, and they responded by providing Aura with an unfalteringly stable Symetrix Solus 8, a processor that’s heavy on fidelity and possessed of a deep musical soul. “We’ve been installing Symetrix processors of various types for several years now, and we… View this post

    In-ear monitors (IEMs) are radically different from the traditional floor wedge method of providing a monitor mix to performers. For many artists and engineers, they are the ideal monitor solution. But for others, they’re simply a method of trading one set of problems (extreme volume, tiny sweet spot, feedback potential) for another (sense of isolation, can’t hear amps or audience). Clever engineers and earphone manufacturers have come up with various methods of handling these issues, all of which revolve around… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Though I’ve been using rechargeable batteries for almost six years now, I’m still learning the best way to maximize their life and run time. I am a firm believer in continuing education, and we try to monitor the life of our batteries, look at the data and feed that information back into our systems that get tweaked for better performance. As I said in a previous post about batteries, I was a little… View this post

    Kelowna Christian Centre (KCC) in Kelowna, British Columbia recently upgraded their sanctuary with a new sound reinforcement system featuring Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers. KCC’s flexible, decade-old sanctuary is heavily used by the church and the school, and also for events, but until recently its multi-media infrastructure and sound reinforcement were outdated and approaching haphazard. Local A/V integrator AVcom Technical Productions designed and installed the new state-of-the-art A/V system centered on the Danley Sound Labs boxes. “As is common… View this post
