The separate worlds of scenic effect, lighting and sound systems are converging, and technical systems for the future should respond to this. We look for opportunities to digitally surround the audience by elegant or hidden placement of the speakers wherever they could be imagined, thus allowing the design and artistry of the sound designer to be realised. We are strategic in the routing of services around the building to allow for the latest protocols of digital mixing processing and routing of facilities all around, with flexibility for the long term.
The design and brief of the system and equipment will be arrived at after discussion with the client to realise their ambitions. There will be continual liaison with the client and end users. We will take the lead on drawing layouts and sourcing devices, and will set up a procedure for review with the client technical staff so that everyone understands and accepts what they are getting.
