On January 6, the Danish popular radio P6 BEAT held its annual music event P6 BEAT Rocker Koncerthuset. For the fifth year in a row, the show hosted a variety of different established and upcoming artists from home and abroad.
The overall lighting concept was based on the creation of a festival feeling inside DR Koncerthuset, which is a concert hall designed for classical music. For this concert, four stages were set up inside the 360° venue. Every stage performance had its own unique expression. The show was an ongoing concert, where each band played three to four songs, until the hosts led the audience's attention to a new stage with the artist next in line. Lighting designer/operator, Sune Verdier, elaborated:
"Because of the fact that the mounting opportunities were very limited, we had a general festival-like lighting rig with an even distribution of wash og spot moving heads. On the floor we had 20 pcs. of SGM P-5 wash lights as a border around the stages. To create this border and a backdrop for the audience and the tv camera, we used the P-5s to light the artists up close. The rectangular shape of the fixture gave a geometrical finish to the edge of the stage, which provided a sharp look for the otherwise small stages."
For the installation, Sune Verdier needed both a good wash and strobe light that could also function as a backdrop for the artist. He found all these features combined in the P-5. He highlighted the high power level and strong saturated colors as the main advantages of the compact LED wash light. Furthermore, he added:
"Whenever I can, I tend to use the P-5 as it’s a very good static wash light, which is also very versatile due to its outdoor capability being IP65-rated."
