    Peter Gabriel and Sting recently took their Rock Paper Scissors double bill on the road, visiting 20 cities across the United States and Canada.

    Greenwich High School’s first class graduated back in 1898 but its current 54-acre campus dates to 1970. With approximately 2,650 students, more than 1,400 of whom are enrolled in music and theater courses, it had far outgrown its old auditorium, which also suffered from poor acoustics, poor sightlines, and other shortcomings. As part of a massive expansion project begun in July 2013, the school constructed a new Performing Arts Center featuring a 1,325-seat, 35,000-foot auditorium with a proper stage, orchestra… View this post

    Go to a concert these days and you’re likely to see line arrays flying left and right above the stage. For many applications, well-designed line array systems supplemented with electronic control are the best choice to provide the necessary SPL, directivity control, and uniformity of output – and to project consistent level and frequency response across large audiences. At the same time, the venerable 2-way loudspeaker, combining a cone driver with a high-frequency device through a directivity-shaping horn, has benefitted… View this post

    Sometimes every card in the deck appears stacked against the goal of achieving consistently high-quality audio in a fixed install. However, in the case of John’s Creek, Georgia’s Perimeter Church—where contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Laura Story serves as a worship leader—the audio team was recently able to overcome a host of longstanding room challenges with a new L-Acoustics Kara line arrays. “This room,” notes Perimeter Church director of Technical Ministry Steve Simmons talking about their sanctuary, “was originally designed to do… View this post

    Twenty One Pilots, with music falling somewhere between the genres of alternative rock, electropop, hip hop, and indie, has captured worldwide attention since the 2015 release Blurryface.
