When legendary American blues singer-songwriter, Bonnie Raitt, visited Denmark at the end of July, The Concert Hall Aarhus had a challenge on its hands to create the perfect setting for her performance before an audience of 1300 fans.
The Grammy Award-winning star had given prior indication of her dislike for any type of smoke on the stage, and therefore the production manager of The Concert Hall Aarhus, Jonas Knive, set out to ensure a backdrop illuminated by impressive lighting and effects. “For this purpose, SGM’s P-5 is a great fixture”, Knive commented.
Errol Reinart, the artiste’s lighting engineer, was also highly impressed by the features of the 12 x P-5’s that were deployed, in relation to spread, saturation and colours; he compared it favourably with the larger-sized wash light fixture he had employed at previous events.
As a first ‘hands-on’ experience with SGM’s LED products, Knive predicts this show as being the first of many steps towards developing a close working relationship. “We now look forward to building a deeply rooted local cooperation with SGM,” he said.
