ENNIO MORRICONE 2018 TOUR
Touring Immersive Audio System
Beginning in late 2017 with an experiment and proof of concept, the immersive audio system for the 2018 European tour for Ennio Morricone deployed an L-Acoustics L-ISA Wide configuration. Scroll down for the details of the system.
Loudspeaker system design & modelling
The loudspeaker system was designed by our team using L-Acoustics SOUNDVISION software. This clip shows a brief walk-through of the design we developed for Ennio's concert at the O2 in London.
Audio system details
The loudspeaker system consists of seven arrays of L-Acoustics KARA with 12 elements in each array for typical venues and 15 elements for larger venues like The O2 in London. The control system consists of a pair of DiGiCo SD7's for FOH and Monitors, a pair of L-Acoustics L-ISA Processors and Optocore signal transport. Fabio Venturi (pictured below) has mixed Morricone for many years and was very excited to provide an even better experience to the Maestro's audiences.
L-ISA control system
The L-ISA processors and controller were deployed in a dual-redundant configuration with a single controller and with Desk-Link to the FOH SD7. The processors were connected via MADI to the SD7 receiving a combination of direct-outs and groups. The objects were placed in the soundscape to exaggerate the placement of the orchestra onstage. The exaggerated placement was used to create a wider and more enveloping sound.
The people and companies that made it happen.
A huge thanks to Fabio Venturi for inviting us in to this project and embracing a new way of mixing and reinforcing the music of Ennio Morricone.
The Audio system was designed by Scott Willsallen with the L-ISA platform operated by Scott and Fabio.
Thanks to Giulio Rovelli from Agora for creating innovative and efficient rigging methods to load the system in so fast.
