    On March 17th, Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, celebrated the ministry’s 40th anniversary by hosting a weekend event titled “ReEnvision.” The weekend was intended to reflect on how Harvest grew from a small church into one of America’s mega-churches with one of the largest evangelical outreaches in America and the world, “Harvest America.” Harvest lighting designer and programmer Christopher Eguizabal was tasked with lighting the event, as well as a special dinner for Harvest guests and staff to be… View this post

    Finnish string quartet Meta4 has invested in four DPA Microphones d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones, which they are using to capture the sound of two violins, a viola and a cello. To date, Meta4 have used their new DPA d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones in a concert hall environment, performing Kaija Saariaho´s Nymphea for string quartet and live electronics and Black Angels by George Crumb. “These are, without a doubt, the best microphones we have ever tried,” says Meta4 viola player Atte… View this post

    Martin Professional’s compact Jem AF-1 fan has been a touring industry staple for well over a decade. Now improvements in digital electronics have made this industry-standard fan more responsive and even more versatile. With the new Jem AF-1 Mkll, advances in control, rotation, speed range and increment adjustment have raised the bar for quality, performance and durability. Speed control response is instantaneous, minimum fan speed has been lowered and motor noise at low speeds has also been reduced. Fully DMX… View this post

    A concert sound system is, in reality, two completely separate sound systems, joined at the hip by a split snake. Each system requires a skilled engineer, but the skill-sets between the two differ vastly. The thing that baffles me is how ill regarded the position of monitor engineer is among my brethren. It can be easily argued and defended that the monitor engineer works twice as hard as everyone else on the crew, unless he/she is lucky enough to have… View this post

    Given its exceptional faculty and its extensive facilities for Music and Music Recording Technology, the Finger Lakes Community College in Canandaigua, New York is rare among community colleges. The campus is home to the Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center (CMAC), a popular outdoor venue that seats 5,000, and a John Storyk-designed recording studio. Recently, the school committed to building a new Student Life Center building, which, among many other amenities, includes a 410-seat Performing Arts Center and a smaller… View this post

    I mix several worship services, but recently had a chance to enjoy a couple of productions from the audience’s perspective (a rare experience!). As an audience member, I was soon reminded of the fact that audio techs sometimes forget (or just don’t know) about audio gain staging for wireless microphones. The clipped (overloaded, distorted) sound on the wireless head-worn microphones during loud vocal passages was certainly distracting—no one wants to hear that! Audio people soon learn that every sound system… View this post

    Held March 12-18 in Austin, the annual South By Southwest (SXSW) Music Conference has in recent years grown to encompass film and interactive media, but for many who travel to Texas, it’s all about the music. With over 2,000 acts from 49 countries performing on over 100 stages, the capital city truly lives up to its’ moniker, ‘Live Music Capital Of The World’. And although SXSW’s focus remains on emerging talent, established artists now line up to play intimate showcases… View this post

    When the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater was preparing for its latest world tour, lighting director Al Crawford wanted to get the best and most advanced lighting control system on the market. So he chose the award-winning ETC Eos to replace the dance company’s older Obsession II console, also from ETC. Alvin Ailey Dance was among the first to use an Eos, which recently won a PLASA Award for Innovation, completing a triple crown of honors (it garnered similar awards… View this post
