Alt-J Takes Over London's O2 Arena

Having won the UK’s prestigious Barclaycard Mercury Prize in 2012 for its debut album, An Awesome Wave, Alt-J has experienced a pretty quick rise to stardom. Jeremy Lechterman, production designer/show director/lighting programmer for the band’s first tour, was called back to design the band’s latest outing, kicking off with a special production at The O2 Arena in London late-January. He’s also making good use of his design firm, FragmentNine, which specializes in concert design and custom media server rentals. The team includes Jackson Gallagher as associate designer and media specialist, Dan Efros for lead content creation, and business manager Lisa Wisely. Grant McDonald and Robert Figueria also worked on content for Alt-J.
