MA Lighting Likes It Live And Loud In Kuala Lumpur

Live And Loudin Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, was a recent 10 day music extravaganza featuring over 50 artists, with more than 45 hours of live music. Joining this musical marathon were stars and bands like Shaggy, Whitney Houston, Elliott Yamin, Project Pop, Nikki, Mode, James Taylor Quartet, Joe Flizzow, and many more.

The lighting was designed by Fares Aljunied with the exception of Shaggy and Whitney Houston whose shows were both designed by s lighting designer Bobby Budall. Both designers relied on two MA Lighting grandMA full-size, three MA NSPs and two grandMA video media servers. Additionally, two laptops ran in full-tracking backup mode with grandMA onPC and grandMA 3D.

Budall comments about the show, saying, “I love the idea of working on two consoles in parallel connected over Ethernet. It effectively allows two programmers to work together at the same time on the same show with full control but without interfering. Normally, if two creative minds come together, this will lead to problems. “

Aljunied adds, “The two consoles allowed us to split the work. Initially we wanted to separate the control of the media servers on one console and the rest of the lights on the other. In the end we were running the show from both consoles allowing us to have full control and to take over from each other at any given time.“

The lighting equipment was provided by Showtec and Sudha Sound and Light.

A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive North American distributor for the grandMA.
